Marvel’s Possible Cancellations By Stealth For February And March 2017?

Posted by December 20, 2016 Comment

Marvel Comics doesn’t like to tell you when it’s cancelled a comic book. You have to read between the lines. Or watch for it just to stop.

Yesterday we said it looked like Black Widow was ending with #12.

BLACK WIDOW #12
MARK WAID & CHRIS SAMNEE (W) • CHRIS SAMNEE (A/C)
IT ALL LEADS TO THIS! All the secrets… All the lies… All the vengeance… It all ends here.
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

You tell us.

In other listings, Solo is gone. Looks like Scarlet Witch was cancelled for February 2017 too. Foolkiller‘s solicit looks also a little… final.

FOOLKILLER #5
MAXIM BEMIS (W) • DALIBOR TALAJIC (A)
Cover by DAVE JOHNSON
Foolkiller vs Foolkiller! What will Greg Salinger’s final fate be?
32 PGS./Parental Advisory …$3.99

The trade paperback ends with issue 5 after all. Great Lakes Avengers has #6 solicited and also goes up to 6 on the TPB.

And with ResurreXion coming in April for the Xbooks, these all look final…

EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN #20
JEFF LEMIRE (W) • VICTOR IBANEZ (A)
Cover by DAVID YARDIN
Storm once referred to JEAN GREY as the heart of the X-Men, and she was ultimately the catalyst for bringing this team of X-Men together. But in the aftermath of their war with the Inhumans, the X-Men’s resolve is faltering…and Jean Grey is doubting her place with them. The X-MEN may have survived the war…but at what cost?

ALL-NEW X-MEN #19

32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

While there is no listing for Uncanny X-Men – was their final listings for February? And Uncanny Inhumans looks like its time for a relaunch as Charles Soule leaves…

UNCANNY INHUMANS #20
CHARLES SOULE (W) • KIM JACINTO (A)
Cover by FRAZER IRVING & SCOTT WILSON
IVX VARIANT COVER BY DECLAN SHALVEY & JORDIE BELLAIRE
INHUMANS VS. X-MEN TIE-IN!

Everything changes for the Inhumans as Charles Soule brings his landmark three-year run on Inhumans titles to an end with this extra-sized story.
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

Spider-Man 2099‘s last solicited trade paperback also ends with March’s issue – could this see the cancellation, for writer Peter David to start Scarlet Spider with Mark Bagley in April?

And could that launch be part of Clone Conspiracy: Omega?

THE CLONE CONSPIRACY: OMEGA

CORY SMITH, MARK BAGLEY, STUART IMMONEN (A)
Cover by JAMES HARREN
Variant Cover by ADI GRANOV
THE CLONE CONSPIRACY is finished, but the impacts on Spider-Man’s life is HUGE.

Witness the first chapter of the next big Spider-Book by Peter David & Mark Bagley!
40 PGS./ONE-SHOT/Rated T+ …$4.99

Same for Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat #16 – does this look like a finale cover to you?

If you are totally guessing and looking at sales rankings, Thunderbolts probably has one issue left at a guess as does Moon Girl. Then there’s Mosaic which will probably get a reprieve. But there are many other factors than just sales that factor into those decisions.
