    Let's bow our heads for the falling of a fantastic title that just hasn't gotten the sales it deserves.

    Paul Cornell's House of Awkwardness: Goodbye Captain Britain

    This is a shame, I needed to drop some titles but this was not going to be one of them.

    Let's fondly remember tales of vampires on the moon.

    I'm crushed. Seriously. It might've been Marvel's best book. I wish they'd reconsider.

    Nah, they keep the ones that sell.


    I loved the first arc but it lost me once they added Blade.

    unless it has Spider-Man or Wolverine in the title or comic itself (ie. team comic) the title will stay. No matter what.

    ASM's weekly sales (at least at my comic book shop and another one i've checked out) is always going down. If it were another title, it'd be canned by now...

    Well your weekly comic store is ordering too many numbers. Amazing Spider-Man is typically a top seller every week.

    And that's a rather shitty argument since they have canceled Spider-Man and Wolverine series in the past. Currently they're both doing good enough that those characters support multiple books.
    Man, am I ever not arguing that! I'm fucking floored with what they've done in the Ultimate Universe and the first Exiles series.

    I'm glad that the awesomeness that is Destroyer is a limited series. Now they can't cancel yet another favorite book of mine.

    And Iron Fist is also ending soon as a regular title.:thumbdown
