With a missing solicitation for the book in November, as well as ominous comments by writer Peter David, some fans are worried that the book may not last much longer.
Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool has some quotes from PEter David on various message board that coincide with the fact that X-Factor has not been solicited for the month of November:
I’m busting ass on this book and sales still haven’t gone up. What did you think was going to happen?
I think the book reads better than ever and retailers aren’t ordering more. The book gets national publicity and retailers aren’t ordering more. If the book were to end, well, it just wouldn’t be a surprise since retailers seem to be sending the message that they’re never going to increase orders… Sometimes it’s not what I say; it’s what I don’t say. Or maybe it’s canceled and I just don’t want to admit to it. I’m a puzzle.
There’s really nothing to say, except that I assume Marvel will make some official announcement.
Certainly seems ominous, but Johnston thinks an announcement of a different sort might be happening at the Toronto Fan Expo:
And you know, if you added up all the different X-Factor issues from different volumes, what number would it be approaching?
