Do me a favor, go to Marvel Comics Full Monthly Solicitations for March 2013 and do a quick search for “Fantastic Four #5” and hit enter, now hit enter again. Now, do the same thing with “Superior Spider-Man #6.” You are not mistaken; there are two different Fantastic Four #5s and Superior Spider-Man #6s coming out in March.
One is the normal run of the mill non-event comic book, and the other is an Age Of Ultron Tie-In.
So, there are a couple of ways the internet can take this news. First, and most reasonable, would be to look at this and say “Wow that is pretty cool. I can keep reading the books I like without having to tie into some stupid event that I don’t care about while people who do get sucked into buying tie-ins don’t have to settle for limited series that never matter.”
Or, and more probable, the reaction will be “What the bloody Hell is wrong with Marvel! Forcing me to double dip!? F*ck you Marvel, I’m boycotting you until Gail Simone is back on Batgirl!”
