If you noticed the latest Marvel Solicitations for April had no Avengers Assemble, you were not alone. Fans reached out to writer (and tumblr-er) Kelly Sue DeConnick on tumblr to ask if the title was ending.
It is indeed.
Ellis wants me to tell you he “murdered it with special English curse magics,” but in truth the book fulfilled its mandate, so it’s done with issue 25.
Thank you SO MUCH for all the support — it’s been a blast.
As to what exactly the "mandate" was, she didn't say, but perhaps a twenty-five issue run was in the planning as Marvel prepares a new wave of Marvel NOW titles.
In the meantime, don't forget DeConnick will have a new Marvel NOW Captain Marvel title on the way, as well as her own creator-owned sci-fi comic, Bitch Planet, launching with Image Comics this year.

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
