It's weird - like they're becoming aware their editorial decisions are why their sales are down, but they don't get which decisions those are.

Also weird, I've been to both US Disney park groups in the last year, and I can't say there was a place that sold comics. It didn't occur to me until a friend recently pointed out he hadn't seen any in the Orlando parks. Seems like a place you could buy trades, busts, posters, etc. along with recent/new issues of Marvel Comics would be a smart idea.

Another pointed out that, ironically, X-23's book was the best shot Marvel had to get "new" readers via the movies, via Logan, and Disney/Marvel didn't have anything to do with that Logan.

Exactly. There's a difference between ppl not buying a certain book because "Muh character is gone", and replacing ALL of your headline characters at once lol

To be fair, that quote in three article is someone saying they haven't talked about an in 18 months, not that there won't be another line-wide for 18 months.
