After Marvel Comics #1000, We're Getting Marvel Comics #1001

While it's a cheap way to compete with DC's recent success with Action Comics #1000 and Detective Comics #1000, fans are still excited for August's Marvel Comics #1000. After all, it's an 80-page comic where each page tells a different story with many creative teams, with only Al Ewing writing multiple stories. It's a fascinating enough concept to get fans interested since it could mean a quality comic book.

But now we're getting Marvel Comics #1001 and fans are now pretty confused.

Like Marvel Comics #1000, this will be an 80-page comic with each page having a different creative tea, only with less Al Ewing this time. One positive is that there will be more female talent in Marvel Comics #1001, which was a problem with #1000. Still, this feels much more corporate and icky than #1000, which already felt that way.
