New Solicits from Marvel for June. I'll update the thread when the full ones are out.

EDIT: Full solicitations are out:

    Yeah, that surprised me too. I mean, it's still selling roughly 23,000 copies, which, while definitely not good, isn't terrible. Especially as it had been trending downwards at a pretty gentle pace of a few hundred copies per issue. A tie-in to Dark Reign, which Swierczynski said he planned to do, could have probably driven numbers up and bought the book a little more time. The same strategy's been successful for books like Ms. Marvel and Black Panther.

    Then again, maybe Swierczynski just had other things to focus on, and Marvel decided to end the book on a high note.

    Because they don't like you.

    Nothing in the advanced solicts that makes my mouth water...maybe with the exception of PUNISHER: FRANK CASTLE - NAKED KILL #1. That looks interesting in a "let's mix Frank Castle with McGyver" kind of way
    PUNISHER: FRANK CASTLE - NAKED KILL #1
    Written by JONATHAN MABERRY
    Penciled by LAURENCE CAMPBELL
    Cover by TIM BRADSTREET
    What do pencils, a feather duster and a plastic trash-bag have in common? To stop a murderous snuff film ring, Frank Castle has to infiltrate a building with a security system so tight that he can’t bring in any weapons. Nothing. Nada. Just his own wits, inventiveness and ruthless efficiency. Oh, and a few cleaning products and office supplies. It’s the Punisher at his ruthless best; as you’ve never seen him before -- the bad guys won’t know what hit them. Multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry (Patient Zero) takes the Punisher into dark territory in this stand-alone tale.

    It sucks because Swierczynski's been awesome on the book. Once it's gone, I highly doubt I'll replace it with another book.

    Marvel loves to fuck with me with their covers. They'll put someone I like on it so I buy it, and then it'll be a total fakeout. I guess it's the nature of the beast with comics, but still! I see Captain Marvel on the fucking cover, I expect the story to involve fucking Captain Marvel!
    I still kind of hope it's her, for real. If you take it for what it says, (which is a risky endeavor considering the marketing department wrote them) how would they be reeling from Maddy? Perplexing.

    Hey, the marketing at Marvel sucks, and the solicits don't mean anything anymore.

    Remember the solicit about the Nightcrawler one-shot that came out a few weeks ago? He was supposed to quit the team because Pixie could do everything he can. It was supposed to be a big turning point in his role for the team.

    The actual issue was nothing of the sort.

    Ok yeah, awesome stuff happened, but the story itself got lost somewhere in there. It was a journey of discovery for Danny, finding out about his past and expanding his understanding of his powers. But then it just turned into neat stuff happening with little or no character growth.

    It isn't bad or anything, I just don't think it's anywhere near what it could or should be. So I wouldn't be all that sad to see it get a rest and then come back in a year or two.
