Writer of cancelled Marvel Comics Vision series Chelsea Cain has come forward to rail on the publisher. Telling us everything BUT why exactly the series was cancelled. Cain spoke to the Daily Beast recently and had this to say:
“Marvel wanted it to be clean and quiet, with the implication, not even, with the understanding that they had more projects for me in the future if we could keep this clean and not make anybody look bad… I really didn’t like being told to not talk about it. I didn’t like being told that they just kind of wanted to leak it [to the press] and then let it go and not have anybody make the story bigger by granting interviews or answering questions, even just online or anything.
Yeah, I’m dead to them, I guess there is that freedom of being like, well, I don’t have to worry about that anymore!
I have so many friends who work in comics who this kind of stuff happens to in one form or another, not uncommonly, and nobody can speak up, They’re always told what messages they can share and the things that they’re supposed to lie about. And you have to do it because otherwise, you won’t have the next job. And it’s not just Marvel Comics, it’s a freelancer economy, in a way I think that most people do not understand.
I don’t think that it was part of some kind of like, sexist conspiracy. I think it was some really smart, funny, friendly boys in a room making a decision and it never occurred to them that this was important, or that these kinds of comics needed a place.”
Cain and husband Marc Mohan were solicited to write a sequel to the critically acclaimed Vision series by Tom King, Gabriel Hernandez-Walta and Jordie Bellaire. Marvel has released no reasoning for the cancellation of the series, which was over half completed according to the creators, and solicited for a November release 2 months ago.
