I think the book is going to be retitled after reading something Axel Alsonso said at one of the Cons. He said point blank that Doomwar was a Black Panther story that could have been told in the Black Panther book...and it doubled and some the sales numbers with the title Doomwar.

We've all said they might reboot the title.  That was never the issue.  We've just been saying the current series is over.

I read the article, basically he said the story could have been in BP but Doomwar is selling two and a half times what BP did. I wish someone had asked them there some plans post DW.

Which is interesting...

On my copy of DOOMWAR #2,  the squared area on the cover section where you'd normally see the bar code had the words inscribed:

Black Panther
 


...and check this out... years ago, when I first started picking up Black Panther at a Books-A-Million bookstore in my area, the receipt would read as a Daredevil title:

SKU: 001255764
Description: MRV DAREDEVIL
Qty: 1
Price: $3.99





Today, the receipt of DOOMWAR now reads:

SKU: 001262208
Description: MRV BLACK PANTHER
Qty: 1
Price: $3.99



Which indicates that DOOMWAR is really a Black Panther proxy. :-\
Bizarre, huh? ;D
