IT ALL STARTS HERE! NOTHING WILL BE THE SAME!!

Yeah yeah, we've heard that 10 times from Marvel in the last few years, but this time might really be the kicker.

Featuring the return of Marvel's regular roster of beloved characters, LEGACY starts with a brand new, stand alone one shot by Jason Aaron, Esad Ribic and a host of guest artists, then envelopes the entire Marvel Universe with new numbering, creative teams and storylines that are sure to intrigue even the most jaded or lapsed reader!

Prof. Will and Casey are here to break you down on who/what/when and why--answering all your questions about this historic event! Please post any comments you might have about stuff we missed or more importantly, what YOU are excited to read in the all-old-is-new-again era of MARVEL LEGACY!!
