Though Marvel Comics didn't officially announce it, Journey Into Mystery is cancelled with August's #655.

A fan noticed that JIM was absent from the Marvel September solicits and asked writer Kathryn Immonen what was up on her blog.

Immonen responded with the news as follows:

Alas no. We are done with 655. But seeing as we were basically cooked right out of the gate, I’m going to call hanging in for nearly a year a success. To be truthful, the real challenge that we inherited with this book was living up to the beautiful work that Kieron et al had done previously and the amazing reader energy that had been generated. 

If all that had happened with our ten issues was to extend the influence of the astonishing Valerio Schiti, that would have been enough. As it is, I’m so proud of what Valerio, Jordie, Clayton, Pepe and I put on the page under Lauren and Jake’s fearless leadership. I’m also thrilled to have been able to write Sif as a fierce warrior and a lovable dork. I hope she finds a new home somewhere with a lot of things to say and a lot of things to kill. 

Thanks for reading. 


It was also recently revealed that Morbius: The Living Vampire was cancelled in September.

The planet-shattering conclusion to Seeds of Destruction…!
• Gaea gets in touch with her monstrous side?!
• To save the ganGREEN goddess, Sif and Beta Ray Bill race to stop the mysterious Ark ship in the (nearly!) scuttled Skuttlebutt!
• The finish line? Asgardia!
