Hey, remember how in January there were rumors going around that the Marvel title Captain Britain and MI13 was cancelled? And Marvel sent out people to say, “oh, no, no, it’s not, we’re doing this great new storyline about Dracula on the moon!”?
Well, turns out that those rumors weren’t correct then, but the book is now cancelled, as confirmed by series writer Paul Cornell. Issue #15 is the last.
Kudos to Cornell for addressing the point. As he says:
you know that time when the whole internet thought we were cancelled? We genuinely weren’t. The book coming to an end now isn’t a revelation that the rumours then were ‘true all along’. If it had been true then, I’d have told you then. I think that controversy, and the extremely welcome reaction from fans, ended up doing a lot of good.
Unfortunately, not enough. And that’s what tends to happen — once people hear a title is in danger, they start reevaluating it. Some people tend to treat pull lists like dating: better to be the dropper, and decide to read something else now, than the droppee, and have something you’re enjoying taken away from you.
