    After several so so events and a couple really bad ones Marvel has nailed it and it showed. I hope against all hope they learned their lesson, but I'm not optimistic.
    I think it's a combination of a lot of things. It gives Ribic more time if he was slipping even further behind (#8 is quite a few pages shorter than when it was the finale issue), it lets Hickman decompress even more which seems to be his thing, and it gives Marvel yet another issue's worth of sales.

    I read somewhere that SW #7 and 8 are being reduced in size to make them easier for the artist to finish, and that SW #9 is basically going to make up for the lost pages.

    Its not what I thought. Jonathan Hickman hadn't mapped out Secret Wars to completion and was doing it on the fly, and that's why he needed to do more to complete the story. I guess his estimation of 56 pages for the last few books was a little short.

    If it's not Banner then it's "a" Hulk, not "the" Hulk. Pretty much sums it up for me.

    MJ as Venom? That'd be interesting. At least for a story.

    I'd read that
    Pull List:
    DC: Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Action Comics, Detective Comics, Green Lanterns, The Flash, Aquaman, Titans, Justice League, HJATGL, Supergirl, Superwoman, DC Bombshells
    Marvel: CANCELLED (good luck with your seasonal approach and constant reboots... I'll miss the characters though)
    Zenescope: Grimm Fairy Tales

    Oh we've already seen that in Spider-Island when MJ belatedly got spider-powers but remained physically human (until Peter removed them, of course).
