Best of Luck
I'm going to be straight with all of you: I can't believe the current Azrael series hasn't been canceled yet.
It's not that Azrael is a bad book. Really, I have no idea if that's the case. It's just that books about lesser characters -- or unknown characters -- don't tend to last very long. Take the Red Circle launch, for instance. I can vouch for the fact that The Shield and The Web were both very good books. But where are those guys now?
Of course, this is coming from a guy who headlined his own series for one hundred issues. But those were different times. In this day and age a book has to have some serious star power (in either the writer, artist, or character department) to guarantee its long life.
Still, I'm hoping my poor, doomed successor has some success before the twisted shade of St. Dumas (his name be praised!) sends the new Azrael spinning into madness. Maybe a new writer will help!
