Ironheart series writer Eve L. Ewing has confirmed that the series will be ending with November's #12 - but that Riri Williams isn't leaving the Marvel landscape, and neither is she.
"Well, I knew our very observant readers would be peeking at the December solicits, so it's time to make it official: the Ironheart solo title with wrap with issue 12!" Ewing tweeted. Thank you to all of you who have been with us on this journey. I'm not sad about this, for three reasons."
Ewing called Ironheart "a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."
"I always said that even if i got to do one issue it would mean the world. We did 12, in a tight market that is not always welcoming to new characters, especially 'risky' ones."
"Second, Ironheart #11 and #12 are absolutely bananas. Saying we are going out with a bang is an understatement. I did the script review for #11 yesterday and I was gasping and yelping as I moved through the issue, despite having literally written it myself. I'm proud of us."
On a positive note, Ewing said that despite Ironheart ending in December both her and Riri Williams "aren't going anywhere."
"We're shifting gears and we will be back. Quite soon," Ewing teased. "...not in a movie and not on TV so please don't @ me on that, lol. all I can say is check out Incoming this December for clues."
Here is the solicitation for November's Ironheart #12.
