If all good things come to an end, what must happen to great things? So many unanswered questions, so many stories that could be unraveled, but the numbers have spoken. It doesn't sell. D..n you, Kaine. Just don't become a villain, man.
to be fair darthfury is that dude who wanted kaine and moondragon to become sidekicks and lovers.......
I thought he just stuck to the Spider-Man board with that stuff with him pushing Black Widow and Psylocke to become crime fighting partners and going on dates with each other because apparently you have to go on dates with superheroines to be friends? But they can't be lovers.
from the other thread he offered these pearls of wisdom to marvel's marketing department!
The reason why both Venom and Scarlett Spider got cancelled could be attributed to the fact that none of the writers seem interested in bringing in a larger reading audience. For example, Scarlett Spider could have brought in a few characters from the X-Men, Avengers, and Spider-Man's rogue galleries and allies. Imagine if Kain was working alongside Mystique and the Taskmaster, as well as Moondragon? As for Venom, imagine if the symbiote was able to regrow Flash's legs, as well as working alongside Dr. Don Blake, Robin Vega, and Longshot? I think that the writers for these titles do not know how to promote their books in the same manner as Dan Slott. The key to a successful series in not just about writing a good story dialog; it's about the ability to attract a wide audience from the most popular comic titles and bringing some of those related characters unto their title series. I am sure that if the writer for Venom had brought in the Black Cat and Menace, it might have increased sales; especially if the Toxin symbiote was on Julia Carpenter instead of Eddie Brock.
@x35: wrong 100% this book was loved by so many for keeping kaine FAR removed from the marvel U , look at the supporting characters Yost has crafted for this story, this book having Wolverine didnt boost sales nor did having The Superior one stop on .Marvel should have more faith in its titles not named avenger or x-men
@wolverine08: Could you recommend anything between #5 and #10. It's just that I noticed a couple of days ago that the Spider-Man reprint series in the U.K. has been printing it, and the current issue includes #5. It's also just started printing the last Amazing Spider-Man arc, so I was thinking of buying it for that, so was just curious as to whether it would be worth continuing to buy for Scarlet Spider issues.
@strider92: That makes sense I suppose. If I start reading now and like it enough, I'll see about getting the earlier few issues. The U.K. reprints can be weirdly difficult to get back issues of sometimes though, so I may have to consider just getting the first TPB.
@frogdog: Yeah, Panini print quite a few Marvel series at the moment.
@strider92: Yeah, that's it. If I'd been keeping an eye on what issues they were printing, I may have started sooner. I'm curious to see if Scarlet Spider lives up to the hype it gets.
