> The way you say that, you seem to imply the series is a sales success. It's not. It is basically the lowest selling series at Marvel (excluding those titles Marvel has a reason to keep going). It's at 20K now, and is still losing alot of readers.

Nah, I didnt mean it was selling..but I understand WHY it is not selling. At any rate 25 issues will be a nice run for the book.

> I would guess cancelled at issue 25. I don't really see a reason for Marvel to keep the book around despite the sales.

I'd probably say issue 20

> > If you were not a fan of Jubes or NT, this book probably wasn't for you. Personally, I love the Night Thrasher stuff..he's always been a fav of mine and Bandit seems to be doing just fine.
> I am a big fan of both Jubes and Night Thrasher, but not of Wondra and Bandit. I read the first 6 issues of the series with the hope that it would be Dwayne, and when it wasn't, I left.
Well I disagree, I have really dug Bandit and , like you, I was mad when it was not Dwayne. Donyell's basically been acting exacly like Dwayne though..sometimes I forget its even Donyell. Bandit was a silly character before. His look and backstory were over the top cliche. It is clear Kevin Grievioux was given an exceptionally short leash on this book. Griev's admitted at SDCC he was "made" to use these characters. I am sure he would have rather used Dwayne, as that is exactly who he is writing IMO.

> > So I am happy it has made it to its solicited issue 17. People seem to really want an "old warrior" book, and this series when it does end will have helped convey that.
> If it's a series you enjoy reading, please continue reading it.
