Oddly, Venom #42 solicited for October is Marvel’s highest numbered title now. Maybe no comic is allowed to get to #50?
Marvel have remained silent on the issue when asked. Could it be;
a) that lateness on the books is forcing Marvel to spread issues out, like Hawkeye.
b) they really are cancelled and aren’t coming back.
c) they will be relaunched in Marvel Now Two in December or January, along with Astonishing X-Men, X-Factor, Avengers Arena and more.
Here’s the final issues so far from October…
