    PRODUCT CHANGES

    MARVEL COMICS:
    • The Green Sketch Variants for Ender’s Shadow: BattleSchool #1 (OCT08 2355, $3.99) & #2 (OCT08 2357, $3.99) have been canceled.
    • Marvel has released previously unannounced details for its Fantastic Four Cosmic Special (OCT08 2405, $4.99). The description of the 64-page story, “Hothouse” – which will be written by Cary Bates and illustrated by Bing Cansino, with a cover by Francesco “Matt” Mattina – follows:
    “When Reed and Ben return from an excursion in a pocket dimension, they bring a nasty toxin back with them that requires The Fantastic Four to place themselves under quarantine in the BaxterBuilding for two days. No big deal, right? Wrong! What starts out as a series of petty squabbles along the lines of a typical episode of The Real World quickly escalates to Def-Con 5 level life-and-death grudge matches that put Reed and Sue, Ben and Johnny at each other’s throats. With all the adults going insane, it’s up to young Valeria and Franklin to save the day – and their family – before no one under the Baxter roof is left alive! Plus a classic FF story by John Byrne from Fantastic Four #237 totally remastered like you’ve never seen before!”
    • Marvel Two-in-One #18 (OCT08 2423, $4.99) has been canceled.
    • Uncanny X-Men #504 MD (SEP08 2388, $2.99) & #505 MD (OCT08 2461, $2.99) have switched covers. The correctly labeled covers are shown here.
