Marvel Comics launched a number of new comics in July,
Avengers A.I. #1… which seems to have Hank Pym in it. Unless, as this week’s Age Of Ultron may suggest, it’s a damn dirty lie. There’s also Age Of Ultron #10 U.C. which must stand for something that fits in with this Hunger image…. Ultron’s Carvery?
There’s What If AVX #1… and #2, #3 and #4.
Guardians Of The Galaxy: Tomorrow’s Avengers #1 as Brian Bendis decides he wants more of the Top Twenty books to himself.
Emerald City Of Oz #1, Marvel’s last best hope of selling in the bookstores.
The Superior Foes Of Spider-Man #1, Superior Carnage #1 and Superior Spider-Man Team Up #1 as Dock Ock wants all your money.
Dexter #1, third time lucky, as in, this has been solicited three times now. Here’s hoping this time it sticks.
Deadpool Kills Deadpool #1, the last ct in the Deadpool Killology series.
Wolverine In The Flesh #1 written by cooking reality TV star Chris Cosentino and starring himself alongside Wolverine, which has Mary Sue written all over it.
But with all these new first issues, something would have to give.
And what seems to have given is Winter Soldier. No mention in July’s solicitations, the last issue in June was #19. Could that have been the final one?
Mind you, with Captain America 2 being subtitled The Winter Soldier, look for a Marvel NOW relaunch any day… now.
Say, you don’t reckon they could get Ed Brubaker back do you? Here’s the June solicitation. Maybe that explosion was a bit more final than we were expecting?
WINTER SOLDIER #19

I had no official response from Marvel to enquiries. Though someone asked me what a “Mary Sue” was…
