Nadia Pym may be the Unstoppable Wasp, but is her comic uncancellable? It appears not, as there is no issue of Unstoppable Wasp solicited for March, according to Marvel's just-released solicitations, though there is a trade paperback collection.
Originally canceled in 2017, Unstoppable Wasp was brought back earlier this year as an ongoing series. Then relegated to a five-issue mini-series, apparently by mistake, before being switched back to an ongoing. But Unstoppable Wasp #5 is the last issue solicited, for February. So was a mini after all? Has it been canceled? Or does it just require some time to catch up after issues #4 and #5 were delayed?
Whether the Wasp is truly unstoppable remains to be determined, but at the very least, she can definitely be slowed down.
UPDATE: On Twitter, Jeremy Whitley has confirmed our speculation (pip pip) that it was the delays to issue #4 and #5 that caused the book to require some catch-up time, and that it will return after March. Of course, Whitely did this under the guise of whinging about Bleeding Cool sensationalizing the headline.
Meanwhile if you happen to notice @bleedingcool reporting that it seems like the book has been cancelled, it's because nobody bothered to ask, even though I know for a fact that they have my contact info.
