What Does A Number One Issue Mean?

CaptainMarvel1

I was pleasantly surprised by just how much pure comics news came out of New York Comic Con this year. It really felt like a show that seemed to revolve around comics (I say as an online observer who didn't attend). Even the panels about non-comics stuff, for example, the Batman: Arkham Origins panel, included moments like readings from The Killing Joke.

As for the comics news itself, well, it was more of a mixed bag. On the one hand, a ton of new series with tons of potential got announced. On the other, we had announcements like the one about Captain Marvel, a book that's only been coming out for about 15 months, restarting with a new number one issue. I'm more than pleased that Captain Marvel will continue. But that odd announcement--and the fact that nearly every other announcement was about a new first issue of a series--got me thinking about what a number-one issue of a comic even means anymore.

Marvel Comics sent out this teaser image for what's presumably a new storyline in Iron Man, the relaunched Marvel NOW series written by Kieron Gillen and currently drawn by Greg Land. Also illustrated by Land, the teaser suggests there are things Iron Man fans still don't know about Tony Stark's past despite the fact that he's appeared in comics continuously for 50 years, which will doubtlessly cause some consternation amongst the prodigious editors of the "Origin" section of Iron Man's Wikipedia entry...
