Quote:Didn't they post some preview art from issue #9 recently somewhere? Makes me think that they HAVE to be at least that far in the writing, and Marvel's holding it until it's done.
They did, issue 9 seems to be done.
Both creators have shown an interest in finishing the project, it's just a matter of timing for them to get to it.
As you said, Marvel is probably just waiting to get the last 3 issues done before they solicit them, and will have them come out in 3 successive months. They did the same thing with Ultimate Wolverine vs Hulk. I wouldn't be suprised to see them come out in the winter. Typically Marvel has to put out a lot of product in December for financial reasons, to make sure they fit their yearly projections. Same reasons why at the end of quarters, we get like 50 issues in a week.
I hope we see it before the end of the year.
JMS set up some interesting characters and I'd like to see their resolutions and hopefully see them in the present day MU.
