After a series of reboots and rejiggerings from Marvel NOW! through Generations and Legacies, the declaration the diversity doesn't sell, the ousting of Axel Alonso and placment of Akira Yoshida as Editor in Chief, Marvel...well it's having a bit of a crisis. DC is making big moves into the OGN, trade, and YA markets while Marvel doesn't seem to know what it wants. Having cancelled several diverse titles before the first trades even came out, Marvel now looks to be reversing course of some as sales figures come back.* Titles like West Coast Avengers will attempt to salvage characters from others as a team book.

Will they be successful?? Find out next month! Excelsior!!!

*Look for Unstoppable Wasp in October! -Ed

Can't believe they would make a blatant diversity hire like Akira Yoshida instead of someone like C.B. Cebulski!

I cannot believe how quickly the thread was resurrected after it died. Just cheapens the whole idea of threads being closed when readers know the threads will be brought back right away.

Dang you're right I should've ran 4 concurrent teaser threads for a few months before merging them into a return of the marvel thread

I wouldn't be interested at all in what those threads are leading up to, but I would read one or two of them if they had posters I liked in them.

Real talk, I've put off reading current Marvel for so long because with Marvel Unlimited and a few trades that I have yet to read I wanted to get caught up on pre-Secret Wars first. But I finally admitted to myself that catching up on all the pre- stuff I want to read and then also the post-stuff simply to catch up is really never going to happen. I didn't want to skip ahead for silly completionist reasons, but if for most of my life reading comics meant having to constantly fill in the blanks of what came before then I can do that again. And I had been reading Coates' Black Panther run so really I was being inconsistent anyway.

So I just said gently caress it and started reading Zdarsky's Marvel 2-in-1 a couple days ago. And it was great! Screw waiting to get to the good stuff.

I hear the most current run of Doctor Strange is awesome?

There's only two issues so far but they've been good and I'm looking forward to more. Oddly, the Ant-Man and Wasp series that Waid is also writing is kind of hinging on a similar premise of being stuck in a strange place, but it didn't catch me at all.

I don't think Marvel doesn't know what it wants to be, I think it's just that it's using it's comics division as a sounding board for interesting or profitable stories for their movies and drat the consequences of whatever happens to the 616 itself. Cebulski doesn't strike me as a guy who's going to fight back against his masters' requests.

Also you should probably get that 2099 out of the title ya dingus.

I'm guessing Gwenpool did not get trade saved like Wasp and Iceman. That makes me sad.
