Ssalefish GSO First Look #125 for 8.28.19
What is Marvel Comics #1000? If you shop at Ssalefish Comics in Greensboro, it’s just $5.99 instead of $9.99, that’s what it is!
Imagine that since Marvel Comics #1 in 1939, the House of Ideas had been publishing a monthly title literally called Marvel Comics for the last 80 years (approximately 960 issues, but it’s Marvel, so there HAD to be some double-shipping in there) and you get to 1,000.
Marvel Comics #1000 will contain one page from each year of those eight decades. It is THE Marvel 80th anniversary celebration. And while I may not remember 100% correctly, I BELIEVE I heard somewhere that it’s definitely going to have a first appearance!
