      agreed but i feel after all this time with no explaination as to why the long ass delay, i mean what has it been, two years?, marvel owes all the readers that put their faith and money into this series a huge apology. what would go a long way towards that is a $2.99 price tag on the remaining issues but knowing marvel, the price will be $3.99.

        I fail to se how a puplisher owe the costumer anything?
        They put out a product – if you like it you can bye it – if not you don’t!
        How we as costumers have any say in what stories they should write is very, very unclear.

          If a publisher promotes a twelve issue monthly series then it should deliver a twelve issue monthly series. We as consumers should hold any company that provides a product as accountable to deliver what they promise.

            They never said the series would be released in twelve consecutive months…

            “They never said the series would be released in twelve consecutive months…”

            True, but it’s held as a general understanding that it would be, given past history of the comics industry. Generally…

            Semantics aside, if a comic company starts failing deadlines on such a regular basis, it certainly spells trouble for that company, as public opinion of them will decline, sales will decline, and in response, said company will begin pushing out inferior product in a rush to boost flagging sales.

            Oh. Wait…

    I liked the “Urn” series with all the Public Domain heroes that led to the “Black Terror” series better.
