Scream: Curse Of Carnage #6 Letters Page is From a Different World

Scream: Curse Of Carnage is one of the series that Marvel Comics had planned and solicited to print but, instead, decided to publish digitally instead. While the sixth issue comic is published digitally as it would have been in print, today, Marvel decided not to redo the letters and editorial page, which makes it read like it's coming from another world. Originally planned for April, they begin by talking about how long it took to publish this comic considering they started working on it in November. And now, of course, we are in June – and if they hadn't gone to digital, it could have been July or August.

Then there's an appeal for people to clear their pull lists at comic shops – which would have been more convincing if this comic had been made available for sale in comic book shops. But of course, if it had been, would anyone who picked up a copy from a comic shop not have also picked up their pull list at the same time?

The letters page – and the comic book also suggest more is to come.

But is there any sign that Scream #7 will be published in any form? Could be. Edelweiss + has a listing for a collection of issue #6 to #10. But will Marvel fill in the rest? Here's a listing for that collection… though its nature may be up in the air right now.
