Cullen Bunn Discusses The Final Fate Of ‘Fearless Defenders,’ Reveals Where The Book Might Have Gone

Fearless Defenders

Fearless Defenders #12 arrived in stores this week, the final issue of a series that in a short amount of time gained a cult following unlike any other in mainstream comics. Upon close examination, it's easy to understand why -- it was not only the rare team title that featured an all female cast, but it was easily one of, if not the, most diverse and progressive titles on the stands. With Fearless Defenders, writer Culllen Bunn and artist Will Sliney fully embraced the notion that women of color and queer women are just as qualified to be heroic as anyone else.

So when it was announced that Marvel was ending the title at issue #12, it was disappointing news for many, including the title's creative team. As one last gift to fans, Bunn took to his website to bid a final farewell to the title, while also sharing some background information, including various lineups considered for the team and notes on where the book may have gone next.
