Back in April, following the release of Marvel's July solicits, we told you about the five comics whose solicits indicated they could be on the chopping block taht month. Those comics were: Uncanny X-Men, X-Force, Deadpool, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, and Unstoppable Wasp. Out analysis was based on how "final" the solicitation text felt, along with ongoing sales numbers and, in the case of the X-Men books, Jonathan Hickman's upcoming relaunch.
Well, writer Jeremy Whitley has given us the first confirmation out of those five titles: Unstoppable Wasp is, sadly, no more after July's Unstoppable Wasp #10. But it is goodbye? Or is it "so long for now?" On Twitter, Whitley appears to offer hope for the latter.
First, Whitley confirmed what we suspected: that Unstoppable Wasp #10 will be the final issue of the series.
But as Whitley said, Unstoppable Wasp has come back before (it's right there in the name, after all). And it could come back again. He offers a blueprint.
So that's it, for now at least. But there are four more titles we thought could be on the chopping block. We should learn more when Marvel's August solicitations hit later this month.
Unstoppable Wasp #8 is in stores next week.
