Being a huge fan of your Captain Marvel, I was chatting about the upcoming series today and in doing so I heard a rumor. I thought I'd ask if you even CAN comment before or instead of repeating the rumor to the wilds of Tumblr. Supposedly, while the new Captain Marvel title is listed in Previews as an (apparent) ongoing, it is appearing as a 6 issue series for actual orders. A mistake? A surprise? Are you bound by NDAs? Should I redirect the question to Marvel editorial? Can we panic yet?
Wacker was asked about this and said it was a mistake. Here. I know absolutely nothing about it.
I spoke to David Lopez yesterday about Captain Marvel for a couple of hours and we were laying down plans for 20 issues, so he and I are thinking positively anyway.
I really do believe it’s an honest mistake, but listen — perception and rumor will hurt the book. So, in light of all this it’s doubly important that we as Carol Corps folks get the word out to PREORDER PREORDER PREORDER.
(CM aside, if you’ve got friends who are interested in dipping their foot in the comics pool who don’t know what a preorder is or how to do it — this is your chance to mentor them into the larger community. Help them find a shop or a site, try some titles, set up a pull, etc.)
