-BLESS THIS MESS
I thought it was kind of weird for Weirdworld #5 to soft-spoil the last two issues of Secret Wars, but I guess launching the All-New, All-Different Marvel Universe alongside Secret Wars #6 already did that for us. Nothing was revealed that wasn’t expected, it just seems odd that these releases are so out of sync. Battleworld blew up this week. The old Marvel U ceased to be last week in Ms. Marvel. And the week before that the new universe was already on its way.
Say what you will for the New 52 launch and its hackjob shortening of so many storylines, but at least it felt like a fresh start. Marvel feels the same way it does every time a new Avengers title starts up and needs 15 #1s to support it.
