Sleepless Ends With Issue #11
I really like Sleepless, the incredible fantasy series by Sarah Vaughn and Leila del Duca. It’s got wonderful characters, an intriguing premise (what if a knight could give up sleep to better protect his princess?), strong world-building, and political intrigue that makes me want to know more.
Now comes word from del Duca that the final issue is in sight.
Just started inking the very last page of SLEEPLESS. This page has all of the elements I loved to draw most in this series so I’m going to cherish every last brush stroke. pic.twitter.com/HTBHs25gCL

Issue #11 will be the last, due out January 9. She said, “The story we set out to tell was limited in length and is now reaching the end.”
I’m sorry to hear it, but I’m glad that there will be a conclusion. That’s something many comic series have trouble with, but I’m sure that this ending will be as strong as the other issues have been.
