Marvel Comics announces Refresh!, relaunching every book with a new #1 each month!

Exclusive! In a surprise move, Marvel Comics has announced that in the fun of this summer’s “Fresh Start” initiative is continuing–each and every month! That’s right, this June sees a line-wide launch of a new #1 issue for many major Marvel titles–and it’ll happen again in July, August, September, and every month after!

Spokesperson Avril Oszukać says: “We know our fans love when we start a new, ‘fresh start’ on a book to give readers a jumping-on point. The response to ‘Fresh Start’ has been so overwhelmingly positive, that every month will see our books restarted with a new #1 issue and a new storyline!”

Confused? Don’t be. “Refresh” offers readers a chance to walk into a comic shop every month with a new, accessible story from a new creative team. “Fans never need to worry about missing that critical first issue,” Oszukać says. “Every issue is a new #1! And of course, we’ll be offering Skottie Young variants, True Believers reprints in subsequent months, and shocking developments in each issue!”

Stay tuned for updates on what’s coming in Marvel Refresh. In the meantime, Marvel has given us a taste of what issues are coming each month.
