Scarlet (2010)

Post by ladders »

So, I have to say that I really enjoyed book one of Scarlet from last year, and I was really looking forward for issue 6 which was supposed to come out last week.

And there's been nothing. No mention of cancellation and no updates of any kind, just "it's coming out on 29/2/12" despite that date having been and gone.

Am I missing something? Does anyone know anything about it?

Virtually every Icon books suffers from horrendous delays (and the shipping dates shown on Marvel's website are almost never updated so are pretty much always wrong).

The latest shipping update for Scarlet #6 on Diamond's site is April 4th.

Nope, still not out yet - probably due to Bendis being involved in the AvX event (he has to get his contract work done before he can do his own projects).

Scarlett #6 - New Shipping Date: June 27th

Sorry to revive my own two year old thread but it's been over a year since issue 7 came out. Has there been any news about this series? Was it cancelled? I've been looking but I can't find anything about.

Bendis is now doing about 5 ongoings a month for Marvel now and Maleev has been working on the Romero books & has a Hellboy mini coming up so not sure when to expect the next issue.

Diamond have posted some recent shipping updates but take them with a pinch of salt I guess.

WAS - 12/11/14
NOW - 14/01/15

Scarlet #9 (MR)

'Bout the comic...

Post by KvK »

I happen to believe that this is one of the best comic from the “spider-verse”. It has a good writing and even better drawing.

Huh? Scarlet is NOT set in the "Spider-verse". I think KvK confused this book with the Scarlet Spider...

That said, I do miss this series. It's a shame Bendis let it fade away without even acknowledging its demise, the (admittedly few) fans deserve better.

This one's still not officially dead (although a 2 year gap between issues will have killed off any chance of garnering any casual interest in it). Latest release dates for the solicited issues are:
Scarlet #8 (MR)
WAS - 22/04/15
NOW - 24/06/15

Scarlet #9 (MR)
WAS - 06/05/15
NOW - 01/07/15

Well, those release dates have been and gone with no sign of any more Scarlet. The Marvel site still has #8, #9 and #10 to come, but I'm not optimistic.

Marvel's website is the absolute worst thing to look at for shipping updates. They just post the initial dates then let then run til the comic is eventually (if ever) released.

Diamond dates for the next two issues of Scarlet are:
Scarlet #8 (MR)
WAS - 22/07/15
NOW - 26/08/15

Scarlet #9 (MR)
WAS - 02/09/15
NOW - 04/11/15

Thanks for the update, I'll check them from now on.

On a related note, anyone want to start taking bets on when they'll actually be released? My guesses are:

#8 - 27/11/15
#9 - 11/04/18
#10 - 30 seconds after the Big Rip
