Marvel Comics Debuts A New Marvel Studios-Inspired Logo And Reveals Big Social Media Presence Change

Marvel Comics has unveiled a brand new logo and social media account which will become the new go-to destination for all comic book news and reveals (well, aside from ComicBookMovie.com, of course).

Despite the massive surge in the popularity of superheroes thanks to the MCU's success, that hasn't translated to comic book sales (even with a lot of new #1 issues) despite them frequently topping DC Comics.

DC Studios' co-CEO James Gunn has done a good job of handling that by sharing social media posts about certain runs or comics which have inspired the DCU. As a result, those trade paperbacks have sold out and, in some instances, even been reprinted due to popular demand. 

Now, it appears Marvel Comics is looking to rebrand itself. As well as debuting a new, Marvel Studios-inspired logo, the publisher has moved its social media posts to @MarvelComicsHQ. Previously, any comic book updates were shared on @Marvel, albeit between posts about everything from movies to competitions and gift guides. 

With any luck, this will go a long way in increasing interest in comics among casual readers and fans.

Here's what to expect from this new account:

• Weekly Comic Updates - Wednesday Warriors, we're reading and reacting along with you every week.

• Reading Recs - The vast Marvel Universe can be hard to navigate, so we're here to help!

• Behind the Scenes Content - How do comics get made? We've got the all-access pass to the writers, artists, and editors who build the House of Ideas.

• News - New titles? New art? New plot points? You'll hear it here first.

• Fun Stuff - (In our best JJJ voice) 🥸 WE'RE HERE TO BRING YOU PICTURES OF SPIDER-MAN!!!

Of course, if you aren't a social media lover (and we can't hold that against you), then don't worry, because we'll continue posting all the biggest Marvel Comics news as and when it happens. 

"Part of the fun is that I've been at this company for half my life, and we're just now tapping into arguably one of the biggest aspects of the publishing history," Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, who now also oversees Marvel Comics, said last year of how important the company's publishing arm in regards to the X-Men's planned MCU debut.

"It's pretty remarkable, and it's a testament to the house of ideas and what Marvel publishing has done these 80 years," he added. "The question is how to do it and when to do it, and that's something we've been working on for years."

@Batmangina - I hear he's part Native American, so when he takes over as head of the studio his title will be Chief Slapahoe.

What are you even talking about? Marvel has been straight-up murdering DC in the sales charts in the last 2-3 years. This is the market share percentage for the Q1 in 2024:

1 Marvel Comics 38.9%
2 DC Comics 21.6%
3 Image Comics 12.4%
4 IDW Publishing/Top Shelf Productions 4.2%
5 Dark Horse Comics 3.7%
6 BOOM! Studios 3.3%
7 Dynamite Entertainment 2.4%
https://icv2.com/articles/markets/view/56680/comic-store-market-shares-q1-2024

Now historically Marvel has always maintained a 8-10% lead over DC but in the last 2-3 years, the difference has ballooned to around 18-20%. DC has barely any books left in the top 20 these days on the IcV2, Bleeding Cool or Amazon Best-seller lists.

@uncannyspidey - But most not all but most modern comics suck.
That's why I buy comic books between the 60s-00s,lots I haven't read, some I buy graded and most importantly they are better stories.

@marvel72 -

You got that right. The 60s - 70s comics were the very best. The 80s/90s were still good, but clearly declining. The last 20 years have seen a MASSIVE decline in quality for DC & Marvels comics. I still read them though at least half of them just suck.

marvel72 - 6/16/2024, 4:51 PM
@DocSpock - I stopped reading modern stuff January 2023.

You do get the odd gem like Immortal Hulk and Daredevil from Marvel. DC I just read Batman,Detective Comics and Green Lantern.
I read a couple of Independents like Something Is killing The Children and TMNT:The Last Ronin.
I was collecting X-Men and other shit but they got so crap, I just cancelled all my subscriptions and focus on Silver Age and Bronze Age.

@marvel72 -

I hear ya. I first cut my CB teeth on Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Flash, & Justice League starting about 1964. It was very easy to get cheap back issues then too.

Those have always been the best to me. I also loved Neal Adams' work on Batman & GL/GA. The original run of Swamp Thing too.

And so so many more.

@uncannyspidey - They don't track copies sold for a reason. The comic book industry is [frick]ing dead.

The Trade Paperback Industry is on life support.

I get everything digital and wouldn't buy a real comic book with a gun to my head.

I still have around 15,000 or so 60s to 90s books bagged and boarded but I have them all digital too, so [frick] the modern publishers

@Batmangina - I've actually been thinking about selling mine. My kid doesnt't want them and I'm at the decluttering age. I need to inventory them though. There are are few apps that can that that.

@marvel72 - no, most are awesome. You dont read them so you only here about the "controversial" ones.

@DocSpock @marvel72 - I'm kind of in the same boat as you guys. For me, the hey-day was the mid-90s comics where you had MacFarlane on art doing Spider-Man before starting Spawn, the 90's X-Men with Chris and Jim, etc. Plus they were all spinning off their own companies like Image and such with all those cool new titles like Savage the Dragon, etc. Man, that was a time when there was SO much good stuff that it was hard to consume it all. I was a teenager in high school and had put my Transformer collection on the shelf (for the time being because toys were so lame but comics were cool), and at the time I was collecting like a dozen comics each month, like all the X-books, the Spideys, Punisher, the 2099 books, GR, etc.

During that time I was able to grab a bunch of the #1s that came out at that time (i.e. X-Men, GR, Spawn, etc.) which I have bagged and boarded, in my modest yet pretty powerful collection.

At one point I was trying to collect the serious back-fills ((I have a copy of X-Factor #1 from the 80s) like it sounds like @marvel72 is doing, and my hat's off to you bro! But then I had to go off and do college stuff and once I got back to my hobbies I'm just collecting Transformers graphic novels (the IDW stuff is 95% amazing FWIW), and then I pick up the other highly-regarded graphic novels to read as time allows (i.e. "Old Man Logan", "The Killing Joke", etc.). Gotta save my money for my TF collection 😉.

I recently picked up a nice hard cover copy of "The Last Ronin" which I'm about to crack open (when I have time), so @marvel72, what was your take away? I've also seen that there is a follow-up (like a story that fills in the gaps) so I'm wondering if that's worth picking up.

@StSteven -

That is great. Many people focus on certain great stuff like favorite titles, special events, graphic novels, etc. It's expensive as to get all the titles. I still get all the DC & Marvel titles even though about 1/4 pf them make me yak. During the 70s-80s, it was tough for me to buy all the comics. By the time I was 35-40 where I could afford whatever I wanted, the age of all the toys was past for me. Then I was a single Dad raising 2 daughters(No sh!t), and my small amount of personal time all went into reading.

My best friend however collected every Star Wars & Star Trek toy ever. Half of his house was like a museum to that stuff.

I am glad for your enjoyment of all this stuff.

@DocSpock - Yeah, you know, despite being a PhD and a Data Scientist with a serious job, married with 2 little girls of my own, I've never grown out of loving toys, comics, movies, etc. I think that that stuff helps to keep you young at heart despite how old you are physically. Plus the sci-fi stuff I think helps to keep your mind and imagination active as well. once a week I go to my local Walmart and Target and just walk through the toy sections looking for things I might like or my girls might like (just picked up a couple of Star Wars figs from Target last weekend as a matter of fact).

I know you're not too far away from me so if you're ever around Plano you should stop by as I think you'd be impressed with my collections. Aside from my comics, I have an entire spare bedroom full of Transformers (literally 1000s of them), still MISB starting from 2006 and going to the present, all grouped according to movie/line/theme/etc. Then I have a movie room with all kinds of toys either as movie props or stuff from the 80s such as my MCU corner, my Star Wars corner, my Ghostbusters shelf, Marvel figs/TMNT figs/He-Man figs/etc. It's kind of my way of reliving my childhood by collecting reissues of the toys I had as a kind in the 80s. I think you'd get a kick out of it. One of these days I'll figure out how to post pics of my 2 "arrested development" rooms here.

@StSteven -

Man, that is dedication. I always had one big full room for comics, baseball cards, etc. When I needed more space, though we had plenty of extra rooms, my wife encouraged me(at gunpoint) to get a temperature controlled mini warehouse for my expansion.
StSteven
StSteven - 6/18/2024, 3:39 PM
@DocSpock - Yeah, I have a feeling that I'm going to end up there (the storage space I mean). We have 5 bedrooms total, 1 is the master, 1 is my office, 1 is a guest room, 1 is the "Princess Room" that my 2 little girls share (which I spent over a year turning from the shithole that it was when we bought the house into a frickin' Disney Princess utopia), and the last is my TF room. I don't know how much longer we're going to stay in this house, as we just paid off our mortgage and I definitely want something newer and a little bigger in some aspects, but eventually I might have to give up the TF room and move everything to a temp. controlled storage location. Man that's gonna suck...

@DrReedRichards - it’s just sad to me. The comics were their own thing and had infinitely better storytelling than the movies. Now? They just ape the mcu, and follow them to a T in a desperate attempt to get more readers that they will never gain because the people that watch the movies don’t give a shit about comics, all the while comic fans get alienated. I mean I know there’s more problems with the comic format than that but we need more original, linear style comics coming out like invincible and the boys that don’t have to follow years and years of convoluted lore and numerous timeline resets.

@DrReedRichards - that logos cool but brand synergy is a thing for a reason. Marvel was ONLY comics in the 90s. Now it's a cultural footprint of its own, a genre onto itself. It makes sense to not use that logo if you ask me

@TK420 - Because Manga has better stories and decent artwork.
I think I heard that Demon Slayer sold more copies than all of the American publishers combined and that's just one title.
DrReedRichards
DrReedRichards - 6/16/2024, 4:48 PM
@marvel72 -

Respectfully, Demon Slayer is a terrible example. Its artwork is nothing to write home about, and its sales are only carried by the popularity of its incredible animation.

One Piece and Jujutsu Kaizen instead, especially the former, are better examples of stories that are great on page but feel lackluster when adapted. Not bad per se, just not as phenomenal as their source material.

@marvel72 - Berserk.

Its art is outworldly specially in later years.

Worth checking out.

Stop hiring preachy activists and start hiring actual creative talented writers again and comic sales will pick up. 🤷‍♂️
