The changes keep coming at Marvel Comics. Mere weeks after announcing C.B. Cebulski as editor-in-chief, the publisher is apparently cancelling several of its lower-selling (and, some would say, overly-political) titles in what appears to be an attempt to streamline their offerings.
According to CBR, The Unbelievable Gwenpool, Generation X, Captain Marvel, Defenders, Luke Cage and America are missing from the March solicitations and are believed to be cancelled. Some of the cancellations have been confirmed by many of the creators working on the affected titles.
So the news is out – GWENPOOL #25 will be the Unbelievable finale.
I won't say my goodbyes just yet – there are still two amazing issues yet to come.

Also seemingly cancelled is X-Men spinoff Iceman, per the series writer…

… as is Hawkeye.
So what is Marvel up to? Are they simply culling lower selling books to focus on flagship characters like Spider-Man and The Avengers? Or are they making room for more X titles and the Fantastic Four, thanks to Disney buying Fox?
It’ll be interesting to see where Marvel goes in 2018, as the comic industry needs a shot in the arm if its to survive into the 21st century.
