Can she find her kidnapped lover, Captain Chandler, there? And who is attacking Schauburger during his garbled ghostly messages?

    Aw. Well, to be honest, it's 6 more issues than I expected to get (plus 2 issues of Miss Fury Digital). Originally this was to be a 5-issue series, so I guess it got a brief reprieve. Sorry to see it go, but not unexpected after seeing that Green Hornet Legacy and The Spider were cancelled (...and possibly Black Bat as well).

    The good news is that Miss Fury is a public domain character, so some other publisher can still do their own version of the character. Given that the character has a history of being reprinted in the Golden Age by Timely/Marvel, I'm surprised that Marvel never bothered to adopt the character once it became public domain. You'd think that she'd have popped in some crowd scene in one of the old Invaders or Liberty Legion comic books by Roy Thomas, or that JMS could have included her in The Twelve (which could have used a couple more female characters). This wouldn't be the first time Marvel has just grabbed some Golden Age character whose original publisher went out of business, as they'd already done this with the western Ghost Rider (originally published by Magazine Enterprises) and Centaur's Amazing Man (who appeared in Ed Brubaker's Secret Avengers run as the Prince of Orphans).

    Well, even though this version was a complete 180-degrees from what I think of as "Miss Fury", I've been enjoying the book for what it is.

    Wonder if anything will be replacing it in the Pulp-style line up?

    Very disheartening.

    Maybe the two of them should have a crossover book in March.

    UGGGHHHH!!!!! My favorite titles are dropping by the wayside. I really enjoyed this title. I was hoping at some point, they would resolve the Cpt Chandler storyline and stop the time shifting. Still, this was an intriguing title. Lots of surprises. The art has been excellent.

    Is it just me, or has Dynamite been dropping a lot of lines lately?

    It's not just you, and it's not just lately. That's pretty much been the case since I first started reading Dynamite titles back in 2006. You can count the number of 'long running' (and I use that term very loosely, and relative only to DE's publishing history) on the fingers of one hand: Red Sonja, The Boys, Lone Ranger, Green Hornet, Warlord of Mars. Of those, The Boys is now gone, although Garth Ennis continues in some capacity on various DE titles and limited series. The rest have all been renumbered at least once (but to be fair, that's par for the course at Marvel and DC too, these days), with the exception of Warlord of Mars (which may be ending after the next story arc, to be replaced by ... ?)

    These titles are the exception in DE's overall publishing output, not the rule. But on the other hand, for every title they cancel they introduce at least one new one, and probably more. All of this is relative to a constant jockeying for position in a highly competitive and volatile marketplace, always searching for the next big thing. Some books start strong enough in sales, but then fizzle out in less than a year. DE is just below the Big 5 (Marvel, DC, Image, IDW, Dark Horse) and is the youngest of these, trying to nip at the heels of Numbers 4 and 5. Since DE is big on licensed titles, that's another area in which they compete with Dark Horse and IDW (especially), to grab the best franchises.

    But I understand what you're saying. It would be nice if Dynamite had some sort of stable core of a dozen or so titles that you could pretty much count on month-to-month. It also helps give the company an identity. It seems to be getting harder and harder to do for all comics publishers these days. It's only been 2 years since DC's 'New 52' reboot, and less than half of the original 52 titles they launched with in September 2011 are still being published - yet for at least part of those 2 years (varying from month to month after the first 6 months), DC was the #1 publisher! I know a lot of us Dynamite readers are sort of 'refugees' from Marvel and DC, and are looking for a kind of stability that those companies aren't providing their readers with any more.

    At least it isn't the death sentence for the character that it used to be...

    Wow, imagine that Dynamite plans on canning this title, Ahaha.. I liked this title and usually those titles I like get canned from Dynamite. That's why I replaced Dynamite with Valiant but the new announced Gold Key titles coming out soon are intriguing enough to buy Dynamite stuff again.
