Looks like they're gearing up for Marvel NOW! by cancelling 9 titles.

Say good-bye to: Captain America, Fantastic Four, FF, Incredible Hulk, Invincible Iron Man, New Mutants, The Mighty Thor, Uncanny X-Men and X-Men Legacy.

Of course, we can assume most of these are coming back via Marvel NOW! with brand new #1's and new creative teams. And in some cases, such as FF and Fantastic Four, it makes sense since Hickman is leaving the books.
Restarting the book because the creative team is changing is silly.
I think it makes a certain amount of sense. If someone new is going to be coming in and changing things around, you might as well start the whole thing fresh. And I wonder if perhaps they think if they let the numbering get to high it'll scare people away.
I've been reading comics for over 40 years, so I've seen a lot of creative teams come and go. Trust me when I say its silly. They aren't going to come in and change all that much.

They're constantly waffling over high numbers vs low. After 40 years I obviously don't care. If like the character or the creators I'll pick up the book no matter what the issue number is. Comic should be designed in a way that any issue is a good jumping on point.
