With Bendis' Move To DC, Marvel Cancels His Two Icon Titles

This leaves Icon without any titles.


Source: Retailer Email

In a retailer email, Marvel revealed the cancellation of Powers #9 and United States of Murder Inc. Annual #1, two titles written by Brian Michael Bendis. The writer recently switched sides to DC, after 17 years at Marvel. The email also stated the two issues will not be resolicited at a later date.

While some creators retain room for creator-owned projects when they sign exclusive with a publisher, it's highly unlikely DC or Marvel would have allowed Bendis this leeway. The cancellation of these two series leaves Marvel's creator-owned Icon imprint without any current titles.
