I really hope they don't cancel the book. I look forward to this book more than most Marvel titles. I really like Yost on Spider titles.

it's still in all of the solicitations up until November so if it is getting cancelled then it's after November

Stegman posted an image from December's issue which is apparently the beginning of a new arc doesn't sound like its getting canned.

Strong rumours about it.....all titles that doesnt have Superior on/in them are getting cancelled....(Morbious,Venom)

Maybe it's just a re-launch.....or maybe it's not cancelled and we are talking bullsh*t here!!...that would be pleasent.

If it they do get canceled it's because they're all selling like crap. I doubt Marvel has some conspiracy to weed out everything not in the superior brand

Truth be told,it's not selling well buddy....

@mitran: The outrage can come from whoever. The ones that are to be blamed for having a series get canceled is the fans who buy "crap" and not the "good" series.

@wolverine08: Well that's true lol

The part that infuriates me is that these guys don't appreciate the gift they've been given, in being able to write comics. They do it only to fellate their own egos. Makes me sick.

I mean look at that. That is just too stupid for words. Remender is completely without talent, and has a job that tens of thousands of far better writers would kill for. Doesn't appreciate it. Doesn't care.

C'mon dude really? Remender is one of my favorite writers, saying that just boggles my mind. Fear Agent and Uncanny X-Force are both seminal works that will be evergreen runs in the future. Uncanny Avengers is superb, currently one of the best books in Marvel's renown (thanks to Marvel NOW) stable and also launched the longest serialized Venom series. The man has talent.

As for the subject at hand, the downfall of these books ARE the rumors themselves. While there may be an inkling of truth to this, the fact that it gets negative publicity like this furthers us (the fans of the series) from hoping to revive and will this series to continue. I love this book to bits, it actually was a top 20 title when it was first conceived (rightfully so) but where Marvel make their mistakes on titles like this is that they don't stick with it. The art, while serviceable, could be better. I would kill for Bagley to be on this book because he's not some A-lister who needs to be on a high profile project (not saying he doesn't deserve it) but it's not someone that they'd have to pull from a high selling book. I don't think the Fantastic Four series lights up the sales charts and I'm sure most of that is the fact that a big name like Fraction is attached to it. My point is that the art has truthfully been a bit lackluster of late even thought the scripting and plot are out of this world. I just wish our voices would be heard.

My suggestion is to vehemently scream out to the world how good this book is every chance you get (on ign, cbr, newsaram, blogs, to friends) and continue buying your copy to hope we can ride this out. Crazier things have happened.

Worst case scenario is that if it does get cancelled we can all rally and make our voices heard for the book to be relaunched in a Marvel NOW wave 2. If only he were on one of the Avengers teams...

@dman1366: Sadly no, I have been too busy to put in the time to have this completed. I would say that I am around 50% complete. I am currently collecting income earning potential for several fields to compare the data with political stances. I will say that so far even with the data not fully complete I am seeing some clear trends.

To be clear I am measuring success primarily on income.

I will be acquiring help from a friend soon to help me with this.

Yeah why should writers at all try to redeem characters that are considered one-note, uninteresting, and/or unlikable? (see Damien Wayne, Superior Spider Foes, Kaine hisself, Prophet by Image, Next Wave, etc.). There truly is no such thing as a "bad" character. Not sure why you think my comment is so "bizarre". Remender has delivered the goods time and time again, but I guess that's just an attempt to get a clever chide in while I'm stuck with the 5 comments a day rule. More power to you, I was actually a previous member from a while ago and was hoping to rejoin the community after iFanboy shutting down operations.

@frogdog: Yeah, its really sad. I really loved Kaine. The saddest part is,Ionly started reading last week, with the first trades, because K4tzm4n's constant raving about it finally made me pick it up.

I still have a lot of DC and Marvel books I am very much enjoying,like Batman, Wonder Woman, Justice League, Avengers, Thor, Daredevil and a few others. Still, its sad that I finally chose to pick up one of the smaller titles and as soon as I am halfway caught up,its getting cancelled. Oh man.

I hope they finish strong and find a good place for Kaine. Maybe in the Thunderbolts team? It would fit, since its also my only source for Venom and Frank Castle, who I both miss dearly solo.
