Time to read the Amazon tea leaves for Marvel Comics again. Cancelled titles are often still collected in trade paperbacks but their collections are truncated. And they often hit Amazon before the news goes official. Today that concerns the current Invaders series and the Champions series.
The first Champions collection since the relaunch collected Champions #1 to #6. However, the second collection, listed on Amazon for the end of the year, only contains four issues, #7 to #10.
The same goes for Invaders, the first collection of which contains the first six issues. The second collection, out at the end of the year as well, also contains four issues as well as something addition, currently dubbed To Be Decided.
Currently Champions and Invaders have had solicitations up to #7 in July. Issue 10 would take each up to October…
Of course there could be something else going on…
