Monday's Headlines | Marvel Cancels Comics

Four titles on hiatus due to the pandemic have been formally canceled. Marvel Comics has formally canceled the ongoing comic book title Morbius, as well as three limited series: Amazing Spider-Man: Daily Bugle, Robert E. Howard's Dark Agnes, and the Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker adaptation. 

For the Morbius ongoing series, its potential return seemed unlikely after Marvel announced an unconnected new Morbius-one-shot earlier this month.

While seemingly disparate, all these newly-canceled titles have one thing in common: they were all solicited before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, and all were among the titles placed on hiatus during the two-month distribution shutdown.

Most other affected Marvel titles resumed publication in the late summer and fall, but these four were among those that did not - and have not released a new issue since the spring of 2020.
