Bleeding Cool reports that letters pages, those relics of a pre-internet age where fans write in to a comic book and a snarky editor or snarkier creator answers them in the back of the book, will be going on hiatus for a few months. The reason? Marvel has more ads coming in than usual, and they need to fill them. So rather than take the extra money those ads will be earning for Marvel and put another page or two in for the ads, they're going to simply replace content readers actually want to see.
Letters pages will supposedly return in a few months, and you can count on that, because whenever a company makes cost-cutting measures to increase their profits, they always put things back the way they were later because that's how American capitalism works.
In the meantime, you can check out the letters pages online.
