    If that's like a multiverse thing it probably got destroyed during Secret Wars I imagine.

    Except for the fact that they're currently hanging out with a junior soul-eating demon/god creature.

    Because the High Evolutionary is in charge and has filled it top to bottom with New-Men and monsters.

    It seems like it’s just a recap of the Kree/Skrull War told from a modern perspective. I’m gonna read it ‘cause I’m really curious to see how some things (like Teddy’s origins and the Cotati stuff) is incorporated in the retelling, but if it’s not a priority to you, I don’t think you’d be missing out on anything too essential.

    The reason to buy Empyre Road Trip is all of that sexy art.

    It definitely wasn't destroyed. It appeared in Champions and Avengers a couple of years ago, just before Avengers No Surrender.

    will they once and for all deal with this issue of the kree and skrull trying to take over earth and the tropes of "sleeper cells" with Skrulls still trying to shape shift their way into mainstream society? (and why focus on the USA?) why not... China, India, etc.?

    So... Do you guys think this event is canceled or do think they'll continue once this all goes away/keep it as digital-only?

    With Diamond shut, it'll either be digital first or postponed.

    Sounds like it would be a pretty short list by now. Even Spider-Man, by his past if not continued association with certain members of the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, or the X-Men, would be tainted by that standard, and without getting into certain other issues specific to the character himself like that (literally) damned deal with Mephisto.
    The spider is always on the hunt.

    Without variant covers to inflate sales Marvel is in it deep now. It’s the worst time to launch a new event, people are not going to be buying all the tie ins right now. Everyone will be cutting costs to survive.

    You don't have to buy tie in-those are cash grabs.

    If all the books are already done-you wait or do digital only.

    I know I don’t plan to. I’m saying that the usual “boost” you get from an event could very well NOT be a factor here. Who the hell is going to be throwing around money at a time like this? And Marvel can’t over ship because there won’t be any retailers to take those copies, and they can’t use variant covers to force stores to buy because the stores can’t order. This could very well be a huge flop.
