The previously-announced Marvel Summer Special #1 won't be released after all. In a new report from Newsarama, the House of Ideas decided to pull the one-off from the release schedule. Originally meant to an homage to Marvel's Swimsuit issues of the 90s, there's no news whether Marvel will use the content created for this issue in other upcoming properties. The issue has since been pulled from Marvel's Digital Comics Shop and the PREVIEWS website from Diamond Comics.

In the wake of the cancellation, Marvel announced the star-studded Marvel Comics #1000, an 80-page one-shot featuring 80 different teams. The over-sized book is due out in August.

The initial solicitation for the one-shot can be found below.
