I had a thought question. Bear with me.

Journey into Mystery has been cancelled. This is the title that eventually became Thor. Thor ended and JiM returned. A couple times that I recall. Both books have existed concurrently at times. It is ending with #655, I believe. And with that, I think, is also the end of any comic from the Big Two Publishers with issue numbers in the triple digits. In fact, I want to say the only comics AT ALL that have triple digit numbering are some of the Archie comics, Spawn and Savage Dragon. Am I right in thinking that’s true?

If I am, that makes me a lot sadder than it probably should.

    Wow, yeah, that’s a total bummer.

    Other than Fables and the Walking Dead I can’t think of any you didn’t mention. That is crazy. Of course I’d bet within five years most of those Marvel titles will do that confusing thing where they have two different issue numbers and eventually go back to only the original numbering.

    I can’t believe I forgot about FABLES and THE WALKING DEAD. Add INVINCIBLE to the list.
