The End of the Inhuman Team Comics – Cancellation of Royals and Secret Warriors?

Royals, the comic that sees the Inhumans head to the stars, written by Al Ewing with artists including JonBoy Meyers, Alvaro Lopez, Thorny Silas and Kevin Libranda, sees its twelfth issue is solicited for December. But nothing in January or February. The second trade paperback collects #6-12 and Inhumans: Judgement Day #1. December also sees the final issue of the mini-series Inhumans: Once And Future Kings and #10 and 11 of Secret Warriors.

Secret Warriors , the comic that teamed younger Inhumans together, by Matthew Rosenberg with Javi Garron, Will Robson and others, sees its twelfth issue solicited January. But nothing in February.

Both books were part of the ResurrXion relaunch a year ago, but while the X-Men titles that span out of that are continuing through Marvel Legacy, including Jean Grey and Iceman, X-Men Gold and X-Men Blue now giving birth to X-Men Red, as well as Weapon X, Generation X and Cable, it seems that Royals and Secret Warriors are not part of that journey in 2018.

What will come, will come. February still sees Inhuman titles Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur, Ms Marvel, Black Bolt, and the new limited series Lockjaw — but the team books seem to have bitten the dust. For now.

ResurrXion II?

One other intriguing note: the solicits for Secret Warriors Vol. 2 only goes up to #10... are there other plans for the collection of the final issues?

Because Royals Vol. 3 is solicited containing #12, #13 and #14 as well as a To Be Declared item. If #13 and #14 don't exist, maybe they could find a home for the uncollected Secret Warriors issues?

The crew of the Astarion returns to Earth – one member short. How has their quest changed them? And will what they bring back change their world forever? Then, in the future, the Progenitors have returned – and only the Last Inhuman and his gang of ancient warriors can save what's left of humanity!

Take your chances?
