Contest Of Champions And Hyperion Cancelled By Marvel Comics

Lots of Marvel Comics titles will be coming to an end soon, ahead of the Marvel Now relaunch.

So while it appears we may see new series for Jessica Jones, Mosaic, Solo, Wasp, Dr Doom, War Machine, Ms America, Prowler, Slapstick, Odinson and new series for Spider-Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Captain America, Ms Marvel  and more…

We will lose the likes of Howard The Duck, Web Warriors and now it seems, Contest Of Champions and Hyperion too.

The final Contest Of Champions #10 is late, set to come out on the 20th July, seven weeks after #9. But they are making it a double-sized doozy.
