Marvel’s Plan To Sell A Million Copies Is All Male Creators

Last week Marvel Editor-in-Chief Akira Yoshida took to Twitter to reminisce about the time a single comic sold a million copies. Well, more like 250K copies with 750k variant covers, but who’s counting.

Now it seems like Yoshida million copy sale idea is coming out: an anthology comic titled Marvel Comics #1000. The kicker? All the creative teams are men.

In an EXXXCLUSIVE statement, Yoshida told comicspit, “Marvel is at the forefront of comics innovation and we’re trying something no one has ever done before. We’ve talked about it for years, but for the first time in history, we’re only using male talent.”

Marvel Comics #1000 is set to release August 2019.

  1. Not a word in that New York Times piece about layoffs.

    “The merger will combine assets from both companies and require an examination of staff levels — just over 20 at Lion Forge and just under 20 at Oni. “We’re going to take a look at efficiencies and identify a number of areas of growth as well,” Mr. Steward said.”

    “Efficiency” and “examination of staff levels” are code for layoffs. Would have been nice if Gustines and the Times just cut through the bullshit and said so, eh?
