Confirming the hints and warnings that had been drifting around of late, the 53 debuting Legacy titles from Marvel will have LENTICULAR variants. The animated gifs that showed classic Marvel moments melding into sometimes not entirely connected new versions that went out with the PR had vision of lenticular covers dancing in everyone’s head…and Marvel has obliged us.
Lenticulation (if that is a word)- an image that shifts as you move your perspective – is a technique familiar to children of all ages, seen in tchochkes from old Crackerjack toys, to children’s books, to even comic book covers. DC blew the doors off with their own lenticular covers a while ago, and Marvel could not resist.
For it is indeed a LEGACY. A line that will remind you of the great characters of the past and present, as well as the great cover gimmicks of the past and present.
The price for these new collectibles has not yet been revealed. When it is, expect Xavier Lancel to have some primo “Alors!” as commentary.
The biggest stories and most epic team-ups come to MARVEL LEGACY this fall, and now you can hold the past and the future in your hands!
