Marvel Cancels Fearless Defenders

You done fucked up now, Marvel.



Source: Cullen Bunn on Tumblr

Genetically engineered super-writer Cullen Bunn confirmed on Tumblr today that Fearless Defenders will end with issue #12. The book, which brought together an all-female cast of Defenders led by Valkyrie and Misty Knight, has been a cult-favorite and also a personal favorite of Ol' Jude Terror's and many other Outhouse staff writers. We understand that the book didn't have amazing sales, but the good will earned by Marvel for producing the title was worth it simply for the fact that it kept them on our good side.

Have you seen Has DC Done Something Stupid Today, Marvel? You don't want none of this, punks.

This book better get a #1 relaunch, Marvel. With the same creative team of Bunn, artist Will Sliney, and fantastic cover artist Mark Brooks.

Seriously, Marvel, we know you don't make money on comics anyway. As many people read The Outhouse in a month as read the best selling comic book, and we certainly don't make any money. It's all about the TV and movies and licensing deals.

We overlook a lot of shit here, Marvel. How about a little quid pro quo? That's all we're saying. Look, just solicit a new Fearless Defenders series in March and we'll forget about this whole misunderstanding.

We're watching you.

*points to eyes, then at Marvel, then back at eyes*

We know you'll do the right thing.

Another Marvel Title Bites The Dust

Postby The Old Doctor » Fri Oct 18, 2013 1:16 pm



According to our friends at the CBR, Fearless Defenders is confirmed to be canceled with issue 12 being it's final.
That's another under two year old title to end.

If Marvel titles were measured as infant mortality... then they'd never be allowed to have kids or care for them. They never seem to make it to see a third year of existence.

By the way Marvel, could you stop canceling titles that I am reading or was planning to? You do this with half or more of them.

I'm a little concerned for Superior Foes of Spider-man. The January solicitc list it as part 2 of a 6 issue story arc. Noe I know most story arcs are 6 issues but they rarely point it out. Unless it's a mini-series.

So I hope that it hasn't been changed from ongoing to miniseries.

I thought it was a mini-series, but then Marvel has been doing the Image schtick of not always ID-ing what is and is not an ongoing anymore.

As it is, can any of their series be referred to as an ongoing anymore?

Yeah, with rebooted Fantastic Four being canceled only to be rebooted again when Robinson takes over, what's the point of calling them ongoing.

That's what slays me. A number of the titles are just relaunches. WHY?! Just continue the damn things.

Captain Marvel gets a hickup and BOOM! Relaunch!
