Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #23

Marvel’s gearing up for its next event, “Marvel Legacy,” which is… uh, some confusing mix of variant covers and a few book direction changes, as far as I can tell. Also a return of some characters to their “original” roles, such as Sam Wilson resuming being the Falcon. There’s still no “Fantastic Four” book, which I assume is related to Fox owning the movie rights.

I wonder if the 52 announced titles is meant to be some sort of dig at rival DC’s DiDio-era obsession with the number 52. (Never mind DC’s finally getting over said number with the failure of the New 52.) Overall, a lot of it sounds like just yet another Marvel relaunch; Legacy’s already gotten plenty of less-than-optimistic remarks online.

There’s also a push of Thor and Hulk this month, timed for the “Thor: Ragnarok” film coming out this November. Said film also features the Hulk, cashing in on “Planet Hulk.”

“Moon Girl”‘s cover is a homage to the classic “Amazing Spider-Man” #50 from 1967.

Squirrel Girl is still in the Savage Land, facing off against Ultron, the robotic villain that appeared in the last “Avengers” film.

Despite how quickly (and dubiously) Marvel axed “Black Panther and the Crew,” it’s now offering the complete run of the series as a trade paperback this month.
