CBR interviewed Marvel editors Axel Alonso and Tom Brevoort during NYCC, where they discussed reducing the number of axillary lines of comics for characters, including Deadpool.
"We knew at some point the Deadpool bubble would pop, and what we've found is essentially, at this point, we have published too much Deadpool. And we're going to scale back on that. That doesn't mean we won't have 'Deadpool' monthly and 'DeadpoolMAX.' We think that those are decidedly different flavors for the reader, but at the end of the day, we realize at one point this really helped the retailers. They were really able to move these units, but now there's evidence that they can't."There are no announcements about any titles being canceled, and Alonso gave the example that there probably wouldn't be additional miniseries like Suicide Kings and Wade Wilson's War.
