    I expect a lot of hate for new number ones but I’m fine with new number ones as long as the story’s good I don’t care. I’ve just finished the starman omnibuses so interested in Robinson’s invaders series since he’s always done better with legacy characters.
    I do have one question with the digital collection. The way I read it you get the first trade digitally for free for buying the right number one. that can’t be popular with stores.

    I thought we’d already done this whole ‘NOW!’ thing …

    I mean, I don’t have a problem with the concept. In fact, I’ve enjoyed the NOW! stuff a lot so far. But to have an whole new ‘NOW!’ every year or two is going to get annoying quick.

    Marvel…NOW! No, wait…. NOW! Wait for it… NOW!

    Does this mean I will need to wait at least another year before they go back to the original numbering in time for issue 700?
    Are they turning the Inhumans into the (Pardon the phrase) New Mutants?
