Legacy.

It’s what lasts. It’s the stuff that sticks… the unfaltering core. The few, tried and true things you can always count on when you boil down any lasting dynasty. That’s Marvel’s pitch for the lion’s share of books this month, but will it deliver?

Look below, dear reader, and find the revival of The Daily Bugle within the pages of Amazing Spider-Man #789, witness an Osborn launch a reign of Goblin terror in Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #12, and tremble as a good-intentioned hero gives in to the venomous allure of power in Spider-Gwen #25. Clones. Symbiote events. One hero struggling against monsters, personal failure, and mandated reboots to keep things fresh and familiar. Legacy is the status quo that endures, a journey that never changes… not really anyway. Enjoy the new classics, True Believers!
