> I have no clue where this Wonder Con was or who was invited to attend but it's clear from the coverage last weekend that there was no Marvel presence. Thus no Marvel news. Before that it was some sort of publisher-retail thing and DC made some major announcements. Nothing from Marvel. Has Marvel made any major Con-level announcements in months? Then there's the fact that Joe Fridays seems to have been killed. I can't blame Joe Q not wanting to be lambasted weekly by fans about OMD anymore but I'd happily take the column even if he refuses to even look at OMD related questions.

Ugh. There was something posted today but it was just Marvel shilling things that A) we already knew about and 2) weren't about Secret Invasion. Way to lose my attention.

I saw this and I thought it was odd that Marvel was going out of their way to push their "non-Invasion" books. Trust me, there are plenty of fans who aren't so obsessed with Invasion that they're forgetting about the rest of the titles. If anything I'm keeping a closer eye on them. In the CBR article I found it encouraging that many Marvel editors pick Iron Fist as one of their favorite titles but find the "underdog" labe they slap on it very discouraging. I want this title to last. Does the term "underdog" mean that it is on the ropes?
