Hot damn on Evil Ernie! Although I am curious as why Dynamite isn't releasing anymore Army of Darkness issues. Is the series canceled for good or on hiatus?

Since it's not on the list does that mean there will be no issue of Pathfinder that month?

@TDK_1997:you most definitely should. One of my favorite comics out there.

#14 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

Wow, The Shadow Special I'll definitely be picking up, even if I'm getting kinda bummed Garth Ennis will no longer be on the regular ongoing :(

I've been loving Jennifer Blood so First Blood is a must and anything Warlord of Mars related is a must

Damn, Dynamite stays digging in the crates.

Thunderbolt?? Alex Ross should just go ahead and do a Blue Beetle book. Keep shaking those characters free..

I totally agree, I would love to see Dynamite's and Ross's take on the original Blue Beetle.
