    Yeah, at the very least I really hope they see the potential in Sina. He has been amazing with the Iceman book.

    The solicit for iceman did mention the idea of Iceman leading his own team. Would LOVE a team book with Bobby as the leader, penned by Sina. His solo series has been stellar and the natural progression for his character after grappling with the personal stuff he faced in his ongoing series would be for him to become a leader of a team.

    Definitely a bummer, and I've seen people speculating that She-Hulk might be ending too, which is also crappy if it turns out to be true.

    Tamaki and Grace have definitely handily proven themselves (and Strain, as a writer), so I'll be fuming if they don't get further opportunities and you have to hope that replacing these series will be more LGBT+ series. It would be a bad look to have nothing following on in April, so here's hoping for the characters and creators.

    Really sad! I'm hoping that maybe they're somehow just taking the month of March off, but...

    ...comics don't really work like that. If ya don't see 'em, they're cancelled. Especially if sales are as bad as they have been... >.<

    Yeah... thing is, as much as I have been enjoying the current book, I do want to see Jen go back to her 'happy' Jade Goddess form sooner rather then later, and I am not really sure if Tamaki is the person to write such a book. I dunno if the book will end, but I could see a new creative team come in.

    Well, sometimes books do skip a month for a variety of reasons--it has happened before, and will undoubtedly happen again. Unfortunately, in this case, most of these cancellations have been confirmed by the writers involved.

    Yeah, Grace has confirmed the Iceman cancellation. But at least he said it's not the end of his work at Marvel, so... fingers crossed.

    Hawkeye, Generation X, She-Hulk, Luke Cage, and America, all ending. (Gwenpool, too, but I've been reading that digitally.) That's five books off my pull list. A full quarter of my pull list. And that's right after USAvengers ended, and Silver Surfer.

    My pull list has taken a massive beating.

    So the Cebulski era sure is off to a great start.

    They'd damned well better have more work lined up for diverse creators, given that, of the six cancellations confirmed today, five of them were books written by women or POC. And THREE by WOC, which you may recognize as literally every single comic they currently have written by women of colour. Like . . . I'm not alone in thinking that's screwed-up, right? Because seriously, that feels deeply screwed-up that Marvel is cancelling all their titles written by WOC, at the same time. It'd be different if they'd already made announcements of upcoming books written by WOC, but nope, we've got nothin'.

    ^^It's really messed up and worrisome. I really hope announcements are forthcoming to relieve some of these fears.

    It's such a shame Christina Strain can't give us the same reassurance (although I'm sure she's pretty busy with the Magicians). She really has a great perspective to offer and is very driven toward providing us with much needed queer romance.

    It's a shame Iceman wasn't given a stronger promotional push / a prominent (queer?) interior artist (although Kevin Wada on covers was a blessing for sure).

    Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. What's this about Flint almost being gay?

    Maybe that is the plan to continue the story--since Iceman as a solo didn't get the numbers to support itself, maybe they'll try giving Grace an Iceman-led team book instead?

    The wrinkle there is that some of those titles were "X" books. While it's a drag, I never expected the "X Titles Will Be Cancelled Quickly If They Don't Perform." rule to be set aside just because of the "Real World" context that accompanies them.

    Iceman, Hawkeye and Gen X. Except Runaways, that's everything I read these days.

    Come March, I'm down to exactly one book. That sucks.

    America was absolutely horrendous. Very easily the worst book Marvel has published in recent memory. I'll be glad to see it go. Here's hoping Rivera is done with the medium and goes back to writing self published erotica.

    Bummed about Generation X and Iceman though, especially Generation X. Christina Strain has done a fantastic job at ensuring each character has an individual voice and I found myself caring about all of the kids. I hope she finds more work on the X-books.
