Newest She-Hulk series cancelled

I'd almost missed this news from 2 weeks ago, that the latest volume starring She-Hulk has been discontinued. After some of the press articles blabbing about how Marvel was making such a huge push to launch monthly series casting superheroines in the lead, this certainly doesn't do much to convince they ever really meant it. Interestingly, the article says:
[...] The series is often compared to books like Matt Fraction's Hawkeye and Mark Waid's Daredevil in terms of offering a unique approach to superhero storytelling.
Those two writers, one who's extremely pretentious and the other who threw away any credibility a decade ago? If Charles Soule, who penned this take on Jennifer Walters, did anything similar to what Waid did recently with DD, then I see far less reason to assume this book could be admired on its own merits.

Don't expect the mainstream press to give the end to this She-Hulk volume any coverage, just like they haven't exactly spoken about why they're worth reading, even for women. And if they haven't mentioned a word about the cancellation, that only confirms these books with women in the lead are a flash-in-the-pan topic for the media that they never had serious interest in.

Looking at the numbers it seems that the Silver Surfer is getting close to the end as well.

I wonder how long it will be until we hear about how great the book is doing.
