Weird how many people were comparing the then upcoming SW and Ms Marvel books, saying that due to the creative teams involved, SW would end up outselling and outliving MM.
Little did they know.
I'm wondering if maybe the reception wasn't as great as they'd hoped so they just abandoned the project.
Delusions of Heroism
My comics and drawings:
i'm sorry guys. i really am. just to be clear. and i was more clear at the panel.
alex did the work of 24 issues just to make this story. it was a lot of concentrated spider-woman for one man. i got to come and go to other projects. this was all he was doing, day in and day out. when we got to 7, he needed a break. i didn't want to go on with it without him.
meanwhile, we've been deving our new icon book for two years. its something different. something bold. it's time to do that. if you love our work, you'll love it. it will be announced in chicago.
this was not a matter of sales or interest. we were number one on itunes for weeks.
thank you for digging her as much as i . she will be in every issue of avengers. and when the dust clears marvel has told us to consider returning to it and we might.
I hope you do so. As much as I love her on Avengers, it's not really the right outlet for her spy stuff like this was. I'd say the same thing for Black Widow too if this was her.

Or even another writer if Bendis wanted to other stuff as well? I think the sales would've still been good. oh, well, its just a comic book- guess I shouldn't take it too seriously. but I will level this criticsm at Marvel~ I think they're too quick to cancel a comic book series, I never imagined that the Spider-Woman ongoing comic book series would be cancelled since the i-toons version didn't do well.
Bummer. The book was probably announced way too early, because it had everyone waiting for it like crazy. Then the motion comic kind of spoiled the story (although I give a ton of credit to Brian for throwing some changes in there), then it feels like it's pretty behind continuity-wise (at least to me) because she's still dealing with Skrulls, then the book ends. Probably not what everyone had in mind.
Ah, well. I didn't feel like it was either creator's best work (at least what's been released so far) but it's a pretty good title. At least Jess is sticking around.
