    been reading the comments and other than Black Guardian, everyone else is only commenting on the free preview pages that were released, when the last 2-3 pages are the real comment worthy stuff, changes how you look at the series, one way or another


I read the spoilers, does that count?

First issue sales will probably be in the 30 to 35K range. The Shadowland Blood on the streets miniseries, which this spins out from and has a similar cast of characters, debuted at 22K. The Thanos Imperative debuted at 35K. Assuming 30K sales for the first issue and standard dropsoffs of 20% for the second issue puts that at 24K, and a 10% drop puts the third issue at 21.5K. So the question really becomes does this book last 6 issues? The same trend happened to Black Widow and Hawkeye and Mockingbird, and those titles are pretty much canceled.

Marvel really needs to re-evaluate their publishing strategies for their titles. Over saturation of the market is really hurting their titles.
