Reading The Tea Leaves For Marvel Comics Cancellations

Posted by March 13, 2017 Comment

mosaic2016008_covMarvel Comics don’t announce cancelled comic books. They suddenly stop appearing in solicitations and then editorial publish a special “goodbye” last page from the editor, writers, and artists.

Though patterns can be observed, observations made, hypotheses garnered,  conclusions drawn. Sometimes they are wrong – and Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur has survived many such portents of doom.

But from what we have now, especially from Amazon solicitations, we have a better idea of what is coming – and going.

One sign is a collection with a small amount of issues of the comic, with extra content to help fill it up.

Such as Mosaic Vol 2, indicating it may be cancelled with issue 8 in May.

MOSAIC #8
GEOFFREY THORNE (W) • KHARY RANDOLPH (A/C)
• Mosaic must choose… Does he fight for himself? Or does he become a hero?
• The Brand Corporation has made its move — now what will Mosaic do?

Get cancelled, it seems.

MOON KNIGHT #14
JEFF LEMIRE (W) • GREG SMALLWOOD (A/C)
VARIANT COVER BY TBA
WHAT A LONG, STRANGE TRIP IT’S BEEN…
• Marc’s past, present and future collide!
• An epic throwdown between MARC SPECTOR and KHONSHU!
• Who will survive, and what will be left of them?

Similarly Spider-Man 2099 with #25, Doctor Strange & The Sorcerors Supreme cancelled with #10 and Occupy Avengers by #9 in July.
