Marvel Comics’ ‘Fresh Start’ Introduces Dual Numbering and New Trade Dress

When Marvel Comics launches its “Fresh Star” publishing initiative with Avengers #1 in May, the publisher will implement changes to its relaunched series’ that honor the Legacy numbering of the past, while also providing newer readers a fresh jumping on point.

Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski discussed these changes at C2E2’s Diamond Comic Distributors retailer summit Friday morning. The changes for all Issue #1’s include a brand new trade dress highlighting an issue’s creative team, a smaller UPC box, and dual numbering for the higher Legacy numbering and the lower, relaunched number.

Cebulski added that the reason for the high and low numbering on the trade dress is to help collectors catalog their runs, which can become complicated when trying to calculate each relaunch and volume for a series.

“Fresh Start” is just the latest in Marvel’s yearly publishing overhaul, following on the heels of last year’s Marvel Legacy. Avengers #1 from writer Jason Aaron and artist Ed McGuinness will kick things off in May, followed by relaunches of ThorAmazing Spider-ManCaptain AmericaIron Man (titled Tony Stark: Iron Man) and many more throughout the summer.
