Marvel Comics has announced the inclusion of what it is calling Primer Pages in all of its Legacy titles - 3-page sequences that relay the history of the title and set the stage for Legacy.
These Primers will be written by Robbie Thompson, and will feature new art by Mark Bagley and others
“When I first approached Robbie and Mark to do these Primer stories, I gave them only one edict: to remind all readers both who these characters are and what they’re about in three all new pages,” said Marvel editor Darren Shan. “What we got back has been some of the most fun art I’ve ever seen from Mark! And we couldn’t be luckier to have someone like Robbie to cherry pick the most classic moments in Marvel history. Then the two of them tie this all up into one perfect package. I think everyone will love these!”
“It's been an absolute blast working on this project -- it gives me a great excuse to re-read so many of my favorite comics!” said writer Robbie Thompson. I've been a fan of Mark's for years, so to get to work with him is a dream come true. Mark takes the scripts and distills them down to their essence, finding brilliant ways to tell these stories with truly iconic images. I can't wait for people to see what he's done with these!"
“This Legacy gig has been a lot of fun to work on and a bit of an education…even for someone who has been drawing comics for as long as I have! I think readers will really enjoy the stories we’re revisiting,” added artist Mark Bagley.
