    Marvel have offered other genres in the past, so this would be a great avenue to bring them back.

I strongly disagree, an anthology is not the way to bring back the various genres. Having an issue that has 8 page stories of war, romance, sci-fi, western, and mystery stories is going to be a failure. It's not going to have a lot of interest.

Does Marvel even want to be bring back those non superhero genres? Probably not. If romance stories were wanted in comics, I'm sure that void would be filled by someone. But they really aren't. At least not at this time, I'm sure when we get digital comics that will change.

    As sure, a Romance fan would solely read this and have nothing else to go to, but the same can be said for a Kamandi fan who reads Wednesday Comics over at DC, so... yeah.

Exactly my point why Kamandi in Wednesday's Comics is a bad idea. Then again, DC doesn't seem to have a goal with the title, and instead just wanted to put it out there. They aren't using it to promote and sell more copies of their titles. They aren't using it to reach new fans.

So if Marvel were to do this, I would want them to promote their current titles and reach new fans.
