    I kind of wish bleeding cool would stop being putz’s and let comic companies release solicits when they want to. That being said...
    New mutants sounds like we may get to see some of the lost generation mutants.
    Who is in mi;13in Excalibur? I kind of like some of the British characters.
    Is morbius going after super villains, now?
    Not interested in the avengers in space, but Thor as a brood...

    That's an absurdly cringey solicit for Immortal Hulk.

    Thoughts:

    - I wasn't really in-love with how Ewing tried to tie things in together with Marvel 1000 so I'm not sure if I'll be any more engaged this time around.

    - So is Rosenberg going to kill off as many cosmic heroes as he killed off X-Men? Is Rich going to keep mentioning that time he ripped Annihilus' face off?

    - Fitting to have Gage write the FF for a one-shot when he's frequently Dan Slott's writing partner.

    - 2099 is back in force. I wonder if we'll see an MC2 resurgence in the next few years or so?

    - Even Ghost Rider 2099? Lot of Ghost Riders these days.

    - I'm not sure how I feel about Strange as a surgeon again (I guess even a Sorcerer Supreme needs a day job), but I'm going to give Waid the benefit of the doubt.

    - That "Worthy" one-shot sounds fun. "no Thor story would be complete without his most trusted companion: the berserker, the warrior extraordinaire, the Lady Sif!" Someone should tell modern Thor writers this.

    - Didn't even take two issues for Thompson to bring Elsa Bloodstone into her new book. I wonder if she's secretly continually pushing for an ongoing or series for her behind the scenes?

    - Doom vs. Mephisto? Blue Marvel? You have my attention.

    - Hawkeye and Black Widow fans sound like they'll be very happy with December's Web of Black Widow.

    - Glad to see Aaron's run finally concluded, now all that's left is the announcement of who's taking over Thor.

    - Sounds like The Hulk has become a movement unto his own.

    - "Thor is a Brood now..." does not surprise me in the least.

    - Carol's killed an Avenger? Yeah, there's some subterfuge or fakery going on here, unless it's a really obscure one she killed.

    - Does Kamala really need a souped-up supersuit to beat Mr. Hyde? I mean, he's tough, but not tougher then other villains she's take on.

    - Sounds like they take the AI dynamic in Slott's Iron Man and maybe have an AI Tony running an Iron Man armor.

    - Coates is finally at this final arc? Will this finally finish his run?

    - The Agents of Wakanda vs. The Moon? Does Ego have a hand in this?

    - The Agents of Atlas sure seem to be kissing a lot.

    - Oh hey, classic Yondu meets modern Yondu! That should be fun .

    - Aero has the classic Superhero relationship problem...your love interest hates your Superhero identity.

    - Charles Soule wrote a much-lauded Darth Vader run, and now he gets to write his grandson.

    - So are they consolidating all the Star Wars books into one series leading up to Empire Strikes Back? Or is that a one-shot leading to the new ongoings?

He's been on a few podcasts recently, and he kept talking about his 'first arc' and like he had plans for the future. The 5 issue trade could just mean a new arc begins with issue 6, and it may be delayed for the same reason, it may rely on events elsewhere, like in the Thor relaunch or Avengers.



    I am not sure where people keep getting this idea, but no, it was billed as an ongoing from the first issue.
    Did Loki have a solicitation this month? I think that's where people are getting that idea.

    Don't burst my bubble! I'm still hoping this means the end of the ARC, and that Zdarsky will get to continue writing Invaders. It's been a great book, and it isn't doing all that badly sales wise. There's plenty of other stories and Invaders that he can focus on, if he's finished his much appreciated focus on Namor.

    Marvel "Let's cancel a bunch of our great books and give the reader's event tie-ins instead" comics. I am excited for the books I am currently reading but nothing else really stands out to me in regards to ongoing comics.

    That Byrne She-Hulk Omnibus, however, looks great to me. Can't wait to pick that up.

    Oh well, I guess it was too much to hope for.

This way they can at least say their boring all-star lineup is selling OK.
    That "boring all-star line-up" is what a lot of fans want from the Avengers. It is, after all, supposed to be the A-list roster.

    I'm glad that Marvel is sticking to having Aaron's book have the brand to itself, save for side books like WCA or Savage that are clearly not meant to step on the toes of what Aaron's doing.

    Having too many Avengers teams only diluted the Avengers brand. Even if many of those books were solid, it was just too much.

    I'd rather have Aaron's Avengers have the playing field to itself - as long as other teams like SA or Strikeforce or Agents of Wakanda can give homes to some under-used characters.

    no, but what I took issue with was how definitively they said it. All I'm saying is, no solicitation this month doesn't mean it is definitely canceled. Books get delayed sometimes for other reasons, from art delays to making it sync with another book, and we have other things pointing to it continuing. Not to mention Thor will likely be relaunching the following month, so the idea that it may tie in with the relaunch with a new arc isn't far fetched, them being brothers and all. All I'm saying is wait for an official word, or check next month before declaring it's done for sure, because books are delayed sometimes.

    edit - oh and the 'i don't know where people get this idea' wasn't to the supposed cancellation, but that I keep seeing people thinking it is a limited series, even before this, and I don't know why, since it couldn't have been more clear that it was an ongoing in the solicit.

    I'm glad you're glad, but obviously that doesn't make me find the lineup any less boring.

    And anyway the problem is that they're not giving homes to under-used characters; that's why some core Avengers haven't been in anything in months. The constant double-dipping on characters (not all of them stars, to be fair: Janet Van Dyne, another core Avenger, is in multiple books) creates a situation where some characters have their stories set up and never told: the Scarlet Witch and Dr. Voodoo started a romance two years ago but haven't appeared in a book together all year.

    If they can use characters and tell their stories without diluting the brand, great; otherwise, I will root for them to introduce another Avengers book that features more of the core Avengers and fewer of the A-listers.

    Keep rooting! All I would say is "don't hold your breath."
