This is very welcome news.
Here's what DiDio said, in the heart of the article:
"We're creating an arc that will run another five issues, and we're hoping that there will be a groundswell of excitement from the fan base that will help drive the sales and push them up, and help this book keep going from there," Didio explained.Now that the gauntlet's been thrown down, I eagerly await a reciprocal announcement from Joe Quesada about Spider-Girl.
"We're making the official announcement at the DC Nation panel at WizardWorld this weekend, and here, right now," Didio said when asked how he's going to make sure the word reaches all ears. "I'll also be dedicating one of my weekly DC Nation columns to the return of Manhunter, and one of the things we're all going to do is make sure we take every opportunity we can to get things right. We're looking at the book coming back in October or November, depending on how quickly our plans come together, and we'll make sure we'll have some promotion tied to those five issues when they're coming out."
"Brevoort on the future of Spider-Girl, which is ending its current volume with #100. "Hopefully, we'll have something to say about it real soon," he said, adding that Spider-Girl readers are the most vocal -- and more importantly, active -- fans that Marvel has."
