Huge Bummer: Manhunter Cancelled

For the third and final time, Manhunter has been given the death knell. In an article at Comic Book Resources, it is revealed that the news comes from no other then series writer Marc Andreyko.

What a bummer! This book has been consistently excellent, yet the readers aren't there. Is it me? Am I the only fan? Did you think it was bad after trying it? I am really curious to know.

I was a latecomer to Manhunter, but I loved it: it had a great supporting cast (something many comics lack) and compelling storylines. I'm sorry to see it go.

I thought it was good, though this recent run has been...eh.

I read maybe the first ten, twelve issues, and every couple of issues afterwards I'd check in to see how the series was doing. I never thought it was better than mediocre.

I really liked it and I'm really pissed off about this.

I enjoyed it. It was one of the few DC comics that I read. I'm sorry to see it go.

I was waiting to get caught up, I bought some of the collections but didn't have any of the 30-something issues. In spite of missing the original Paul Kirk Manhunter, I really liked the new one. Anyone think we should write IDW to pick up another cast-off female hero?
