Short on the heels after the cancellation of Ms. Marvel, the only other remaining Marvel comic headlined by a female character, Spider-Woman has gone on indefinite hiatus. This is specially bitter considering that March, Women's Month, has seen the end of two book with woman leads, in definite contrast with the message that Marvel has been trying to push for it's female characters. The difference between the two titles is that they were canceled for different reasons, and that Spider-Woman had a motion comic attached to the title, which was part of the reason it met an untimely end. Hit the jump to see more.
The real catch, however, is that the trade couldn't be solicited earlier because the comic book series was still going on, the final issue didn't come out until this month. In the end, the real question is whether Marvel is in the business of selling the motion comics or selling the regular comics. Trying to sell both, out of the same material, seems like a conflicting business move, hurting potential sales from both.
