Earlier Tuesday morning, Midtown Comics, who fulfills Marvel Comics' mail order service, released a newsletter update indicating that subscribers to the Kelly Sue DeConnick-scripted title would be having their orders for the book shifted to Jonathan Hickman's "Avengers" series due to the former's impending cancellation.
However, when approached by CBR for confirmation, Marvel stated the series is not going anywhere. Indeed, late last week, Marvel announced that following the title's current crossover with DeConnick's "Captain Marvel," "Avengers: The Enemy Within," the book is set to tie-in with Hickman's "Infinity," the publisher's major late-summer event featuring the Avengers, Thanos and more.
Midtown Comics is expected to release an updated newsletter correcting the error shortly.
UPDATE: Marvel and Midtown have sent out a newsletter update correcting the error.
