Every month we spend an evening scouring the pages of the latest issue of Previews and pick the ten titles we are looking forward to the most. This month it's the July issue which includes comics scheduled to ship in September 2017.

Matt C: I’m still not entirely sure what the purpose of this ‘Legacy’ initiative is, aside from placing emphasis back on the original iterations of the most iconic characters in Marvel’s pantheon. There’s the short term gain, maybe, but where does this take us in the long term? Then I remember that I’ve been reading Marvel comics for over three decades now, I’m familiar with the constant change-vs-illusion-of-change paradigm, and I’m really too old to get worked up about these things anymore. I don’t like a certain direction they're taking with a specific character? Fine, I’ll let it run its course and be back when they do something that connects with me again. But anyway, regardless of whether this new push by the House of Ideas connects this time around, this issue has the creative team of Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic, one of the very best partnerships you can get from Marvel’s current roster of creatives, so at the very least it’ll be smartly written, beautiful to look at and worth picking up, whether the whole concept ultimately sticks or not. In this case, I’m erring on the side of optimism.
