Marvel doesn't do as many minis and one-shots as they did 2-3 years ago, probably for the sales reasons Mets mentioned (Alonso may have confirmed such, if memory serves). Now they say they'd rather just do those things in the main book, like the return of Sabretooth. Those kinds of attitudes always seem kind of fluid, though, and could probably change at any time.

"What oldschool said"
The Shadow, 2008
I sort of noticed.
It feels like October is going to be a strong month for SSM with so many exciting things happening in the book right now.
Its that time of the month again; and Superior makes it back to the top ten as the best Marvel ongoing. I really thought #19 would suddenly do exceptionally well, with all the fan fair from Parker fans about him returning. But that doesn't seem to be the case here ?

Given the stiff competition in the Top Ten...
I know Kevin Nichols through a guy that knows a gal. Small world!
If nihilism didn't take some delight in destruction one might suspect nihilists were an unnaturally morbid sort.
It makes for good conversation: Many people assumed that Marvel had a set number of issues planned for Superior, with the most common prediction being "It will end when ASM2 comes out"… We don't know what the plans were or are. For the sake of conversation, let's say "Petes back for ASM2" was the plan. Does that change given the continued tremendous sales? Of course Marvel expected Superior to sell well, but I wonder if it's exceeded expectations. Do you think Marvel would cancel such a great-selling book, if this were the case?
