These days, it’s not a question of if a given year is going to have some big comic book events, but rather how many there are going to be. Despite some fans complaining about “event fatigue,” the sales figures prove that the market wants giant, flashy crossovers and occurrences of enormous importance, and the publishers aim to deliver. Many of those same fans complaining about fatigue will soon find themselves giving in to the hype around the big events in comics in 2017.

Comic books are certainly experiencing another golden age right now, thanks in no small part to the financial and (sometimes) critical success of their movie counterparts. However, the traditional printed side of the industry is also doing brisk business these days. Major publishers like Marvel, DC, and Image compete to outdo each other not just on the shelves of local comic book shops but also in the headlines of mainstream media outlets that increasingly report on comic happenings. And the hype machine is already up and running - we already know about more than a few events that will be drawing mega-attention this year. Here's a quick 2017 comics preview that will give you a peek at upcoming events and crossovers you don't want to miss.
