Say it ain’t so. Along with Winter Soldier and Red She-Hulk, Journey Into Mystery joins the soon to be cancelled books due to low sales.
Immonen confirmed on her blog today that the series has been canceled as of August’s issue #655:
We are done with 655. But seeing as we were basically cooked right out of the gate, I’m going to call hanging in for nearly a year a success. To be truthful, the real challenge that we inherited with this book was living up to the beautiful work that Kieron et al had done previously and the amazing reader energy that had been generated.
If all that had happened with our ten issues was to extend the influence of the astonishing Valerio Schiti, that would have been enough. As it is, I’m so proud of what Valerio, Jordie, Clayton, Pepe and I put on the page under Lauren and Jake’s fearless leadership. I’m also thrilled to have been able to write Sif as a fierce warrior and a lovable dork. I hope she finds a new home somewhere with a lot of things to say and a lot of things to kill.
Thanks for reading.
It’s sad to read because this has been one of the best women centric books Marvel has released and it really hasn’t disappointed either. This leaves fans of the female series with one less to turn to, but if anything it shows that fans need to give books like this a chance because they are quality and need the chance to shine.
