Uncanny Avengers Fan Distressed About Uncanny Avengers' Regular Release Schedule

The fan described the first few issues as "like a surprise birthday in his pants" when they sporadically came out.

Jacob Edwards is just like any other comic book fan, except slower. He suffers from a rare but very real disease known as Lethargus Comicus Millaritis. Those afflicted by this disease are unable to cope with the hectic pacing of monthly comic books, and can only read comics that come out at a pace of every three months or slower.

"Theeeeee laaaaasssssttttt coooommmmiiiccccc IIIII rreeeaallllyyyyy eennnjoooyyyyeeedddd beeffoooorrreeee ttthhhiiissss waaaassssss Alllll Ssstttaaaarrrrr Baattttmmaaannnn aannnndddd Rrrrooobbbiinnnn thheeeeee Bbboooyyyyy Wwwoooonnnnddddeeerrrr byy Fraaaannnnkkk Miiiillleeeerrrr annndd Jiiimm Leeeeeeeeeeeeee," said Edwards, who, as a result of his condition, speaks in slow motion.

As you can imagine, Uncanny Avengers, thanks to John Cassaday's inability to draw more than one comic every six months, was the perfect fit for Edwards. But with Cassaday off of Uncanny Avengers and Daniel Acuna in, Edwards finds he cannot keep up with the book.

"Iiiiii'mmmm veerrryyyy saaaaaddddddddddddd," a tearful Edwards told us.

"What?" asked an indignant Cassaday when we reached out to him for comment on this issue. "Fuck you, that's not a real disease!"

Though most fans probably appreciate being able to read Uncanny Avengers on a regular schedule, The Outhouse hopes that Marvel understands the negative effect their on-time comic book production has on some members of the fanbase and puts Cassaday on another book as soon as possible, which, in Cassaday's case, is probably May, 2015.

Here's the press release and a first look at Uncanny Avengers #8:
