Marvel announces ‘Black Panther #1’

by Phil Wheat

New creative teams. New series. New directions. New beginnings. It all kicks off this May with Venom #1 – the second announcement of Marvel’s “Fresh Start” initiative… and this is perfectly timed to pick up new readers following the uber-hit that is the Black Panther movie!

“Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out new beginnings for a few of our key franchises—new creative teams, new starting points, new storylines—all the big stuff that we’ve been building towards since LEGACY began,” says SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “This isn’t a clearing of the slate—while these new starts will kick off with new #1s, we’ll be maintaining the classic LEGACY issue counts as dual numbering on these titles as well. Oh, and don’t read anything into not seeing a character on the Jim Cheung piece…we can only squeeze so many characters onto there without killing poor Jim!”
