And Gillen can and has been writing three books a month for some time now, and only dropped duties on Generation Hope
because of Uncanny X-Men
and Journey into Mystery
's excellerated, twice-monthly shipping schedule in recent months. So it wouldn't be a strain for him to continue writing Uncanny
while taking on Iron Man
But his leaving Journey into Mystery
is NOT an option.
JiM is one of the best (if not best-selling... *sigh*) books that Marvel publishes right now. Gillen has said that his story for Loki is a finite one, with a definite beginning, middle and end, lasting about 30-40 issues,
and he is only 16 issues into it.
