Waitaminute ... isn't All-New Marvel NOW! relaunching series, not unlaunching old series..?
The folks at Marvel have a plan for what they calculate will be the 300th issue of X-Men: Legacy. In March, 2014 the publisher will offer a #300 issue that takes a numerical break from the titles current numbering convention.
Legacy began life in 1991 as the much-remembered (and ordered) X-Men by Chris Claremont and Jim Lee, became New X-Men in 2001 under Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely, went back to just X-Men in 2004, and then finally morphed into X-Men: Legacy with issue #208 in 2008.
The title then relaunched with a new #1 as part of Marvel's 'All-New Marvel NOW!' initiative last year.
Marvel plans to recognize just the history of Legacy since the '08 title change in this special, with stories by each of the series writers - Mike Carey, Christos Gage and current writer Si Spurrier, each likely using the cast from their runs in their stories.
We'll learn more later this week with the release of Marvel's March, 2014 solicitations, but until then check out this first look at the cover.
