Maybe they've cancelled it to make way for a Wolverine & Deapool team up book. Seems Marvel gets angry when it's new characters books actually do well and starting finding a fan base....

well at least i found a way to retaliate at marvel now, I'm going drop new avengers for that. I was going to give new avengers another shot but now I'm in a screw it mood

@moviegeek17: New Avengers? Bendis' Avenger books have been pretty terrible. You'll be doing yourself and Academy a favor.

#105 Posted by RainEffect (3240 posts) - - Show Bio

What the heck happens to Sanada Takeda and Majorie Liu now? Two of the most talented employees of Marvel.

@Cafeterialoca:

yeah, i agree. His regular avengers book is ok but i definitely am not finished reading about x23 yet so ill gladly sacrifice a bendis book to keep a smaller marvel book alive.

awwwwwwwwwwww. that sucks.

#108 Posted by Cafeterialoca (1501 posts) - - Show Bio

@moviegeek17: And I fully believe you'll like Academy.

I mean, Bendis is redoing the Dark Avengers with just plain obscure villains. He even redos the whole Venom to Spider-Man scene to the T and it's even more nonsensical the second time. He's running out of ideas.

Are you kidding me!?! The only marvel books I get these days are x-23, uncanny x-force, daken and new mutants. I'm dropping the pedestrian new mutants and I'd drop daken without a second thought. I thought marvel wanted to build a female character? Bad move marvel, it's no wonder most of my money is in dc pockets these days but x-23 is better than most of the dc comics I get. Shocking decision

I am so pissed now, my heart sailed DOWN .

#112 Edited by mightiness (291 posts) - - Show Bio

Thanks goodness. Hopefully they kill the character off in the final issue. Although I do enjoy Marjorie as a writer. I wish she had written Black Widow for a bit longer.

This is the second bit of devastating news I've gotten in the last half-hour. The first is personal so I'd rather not go into it, just know that this hasn't been a good afternoon for me and my family.

#114 Posted by LordRequiem (1302 posts) - - Show Bio

Why don't they cancel the Bendis garbage and keep something good for once. I don't read this, but it's a shame they are removing their interesting characters and teams, but still able to saturate their release of events and deaths for better known teams and characters.

Man a little heart-broken over this one. This was one of my favorite series, and probably my favorite character. Sucks they decided to cancel this one, and I don't really understand why. I would have much preferred they canceled one of the other trillion X books.

true but that wouldn't piss off fans of this series

#117 Posted by novakidx (105 posts) - - Show Bio

I have a feeling it's not really "canceled" as more a natural end

as explained, X-23 will be in AA [avenger's academy], the venom crossover...and if she's involved in reenesis she might join one of the two teams...I don't think she needs an ongoing for now, especially with "budget cuts"

#118 Posted by Tyrannotaur (288 posts) - - Show Bio

Truly a shame. I really got interested in X-23 after Marvel Vs Capcom came out and I started to main her (I'm not very good, but w/e). I then went back and read Chris Yost's stuff that he did for her and loved them both. Then I went and read New X-men, and finally started reading her own series. A shame to see it go. I liked the work Liu was doing on it. Oh well, here's hoping she joins up with Wolverine again or gets another book sometime in the future. I will be checking out Avengers academy too.

#119 Posted by jstarzyk (313 posts) - - Show Bio

Darn!  I love Marjorie Liu.  :(

#120 Posted by ClawFist (229 posts) - - Show Bio

@EnSabahNurX: Well Wolverine the Best There Is is essentially being cancelled as no one is taking up the book after its current writer.

This is extremely upsetting news however, along with Wolverine, Daken, and X-Force, X-23 is on my monthly pull list. There just has to be some way to change Marvel's mind on this matter, there just has to be.

@ClawFist:

Unless people start buying the book like crazy I'm afraid not. In fact that actually got alpha flight cancelled faster.

#122 Edited by Danial79 (2207 posts) - - Show Bio

It's not really that surprising. Of the 3 books mentioned, X-23 is dropping the fastest. Here are the year's sales so far, and you can see X-23 (blue) has the steepest decline. By comparison, Avengers Academy is very stable at around 24k.

#123 Posted by daredeville (84 posts) - - Show Bio

@Danial79: nice chart!

Glad to see Academy is pretty solid.. it's a great book...

If you've never read it, this is the perfect moment to jump on as they move to a new location, and new members are added.

I have not read X-23 since I've cut a lot of X-Men out of my diet.. but I loved Marjorie Liu's run on Black Widow, it was the best Black Widow series I've read in years... I hope she gets another series to work on... maybe even return to Black Widow..?!

#124 Posted by VioletPhoenix (291 posts) - - Show Bio

@Cafeterialoca:

problem with that is that I'm not familiar with the Academy, I don't want to have to backtrack on their issues as well just so I can understand the context in which X-23 fits in. Her solo series was fine to keep up with after Second Coming and her X-experiences

#125 Posted by Omertalvendetta (395 posts) - - Show Bio

@Danial79: That's an awesome chart.... funny thing about X-23 is that the last arc was the better one out of everything that book's delivered. Funny how sales represent the opposite of what I feel.

#126 Posted by Alch21 (208 posts) - - Show Bio

They should bring it back for her Fans. Kinda feel flat on me but she has fans, the book sells, why the hell not.

I left my in-depth thoughts in the other story. As for this one, I leave my reaction to Michael Scott...

I had a similar reaction when i first found out the news lol

#129 Posted by shawn87 (2095 posts) - - Show Bio

Well that sucks. I'd say cut one of the four or five (can't keep track) Avengers titles to make room for X-23

#130 Posted by Xenozoic Shaman (410 posts) - - Show Bio

To be honest, the recent storyline seemed a bit weird to me. I had been picking up issues before that, but temporarily stopped with hopes that the next story would be better. Guess I'll have to wait a lot longer than I thought...

#131 Posted by laabitres (315 posts) - - Show Bio

thats some bs

#132 Posted by Ultimate_MiracleMan (73 posts) - - Show Bio

NNOOOOO!!! MY favorite X-character! She'd better be on AA permanently or there will be consequences.

#133 Posted by jcbart (341 posts) - - Show Bio

This is ridiculous. It's a very good title with brilliant writing by Liu and the stellar art of Noto. Silly Marvel.

#134 Posted by halfpastwhenever (132 posts) - - Show Bio

That's a shame I really liked what I read of this series.

She gets moved to uncanny x-force

@Babs: Once again Marvel's harsh budgeting axes a decent book, and surprise surprise, once again that book is their sole female solo ongoing title. What the hell Marvel?

I will be very sad if they end X23s comic shes bin going so well, i really wanted to see where she would go, i hope this isnt it for her and all the other titles

#146 Posted by muggerrooster (2 posts) - - Show Bio

That's fine with me that last artist was itching my craw,I hope possibly Mike Choi's working on something with her those were and still are classics.

Hey Marvel thank you so much for cancelling yet another amazing series that had a strong female lead -________- First Ms Marvel and now X-23? You guys really don't know how to please fans, because where i come from in a place called Common Sense land Happier Fans = More Money. Think next time please before you make an idiotic choice like this. I will however feel better if you guys do change your mind and bring back the title to make up for this. Though that probably won't happen :/

#148 Posted by theQman121 (9 posts) - - Show Bio

This makes me sad. I only just picked up the first trade a few weeks ago and hadn't gotten around to reading it yet. I'll be reading through it tomorrow in mourning.

#149 Posted by LoganX360 (69 posts) - - Show Bio

not to fond of x-23 , wolverine has been around for atleast 300 years , they could of came up with a better origin for an offspring .

i say have x-23 find Gateway & somehow get teleported to the future 31st century guardians of the galaxy for some soul searching ends up finding rancor & travels back to 616 present with her or just have rancor show up flinging x-23's corps in front of the avengers hq & say here's ur " wolverine" marketing for your team .
