A question about the Marvel Legends reprints (and any reprint, for that matter).

Are these supposed to be classified as "2" in the printing box (ie, second printings)? I notice that some are, and some are not. Which begs the question further--how do we determine what is a true second print, anyway? Take the Marvel Legends edition of Avengers Annual #10, for instance. Yes, it does reprint Avengers Annual #10. But is this edition really a second printing, or just a repackaging of Avengers Annual #10 (new cover, new format), and therefore a first printing of a Marvel Legends comic that reprints Avengers Annual #10? It's a fine line.

It's late. I think about this stuff when it's late...

I, personally, wouldn't put second print on it unless it says so. To me the Marvel Legends/Marvel Universe books are new editions.

I agree, unless it says second printing, I would not put it on it.

+1 for me. It's not a second printing, it's the first pringing of the "Marvel Legends Edition".

Yep

I would suggest keeping them all as first prints--even if some of the copies state "2nd print" in the indicia. These are all from the same comic line/format. I think it should be uniform across the board in the database one way or the other.

This same problem is also plaguing the Warlock (1992) series. This series reprints the Warlock (1982) comics. Some of the issues state "2nd Printing" in the indicia, others do not. Consequently, there are some issues of the 1992 series that have B variants in the database (2nd Prints). I don't believe any of the comics from the 1992 series were reprinted upon their release in 1992. They should all be A variants, with no B variants in existence.

If we can prove that those "Second Printing" notes in the indices are mistakes, fine. But until then, we must allow that these later edition did indeed have multiple printings.

I guess I'm not familiar with Marvel Legends reprints.

How does the indicia of the ML comic compare to that of the original printing?

How does the advertising content of the ML comic compare to that of the original?

Is there evidence of recoloring the story for the ML comic?

Is there evidence of art or script corrections for the ML comic?

Is there any new editorial content in the ML comic?

The more the ML comic looks like a simple matter of sending the film back to the printer, the less I would tend to view it as a separate publication. But the more the ML comic shows evidence that an editor took a fresh look at it, made some changes, and generally thought about it as its own publication, the more I would tend to view it as its own publication.

With those who said it's a close call in any case, I don't disagree.
