    [realspoiler:bb3a4767b2]No it hasn't. He's just sandbagging so people will leave him the hell alone.[/realspoiler:bb3a4767b2]
    [realspoiler:bb3a4767b2]Well, the way I read it, the disease HAS taken a toll, he's just one of the lucky 2% or so where it won't get any WORSE. He's pretty much in the same condition as when he confronted The Smiler at the police station.[/realspoiler:bb3a4767b2]

    Man, why the hell did they add that subtitle to Nextwave?

    I mean, it doesn't even make sense. They're not agents of H.A.T.E.. They rebelled. That's the whole point of what little plot it has.

    I don't know if I'm just being brain-dead or something, but what ever happened to Black Gas? The first one was pretty good, and then the series just seems to have fallen of the face of the earth.

    It might also have been a reorder, though, I don't know.

    Not sure if this has been posted in this thread (I haven't read all of it), but this is further proof that Warren Ellis is one of the greatest humans in the world:

    http://thecomicbooks.com/Audio/Ellis/

    A collection of mp3s of him at conventions. Most of them are hilarious. My particular favourite is this one:

    Nextwave to continue as series-of-miniseries
    Sales on the singles are okay, if not great. Sales on the first collection have apparently been terrific.

    We were on such a roll with NEXTWAVE that I was actually into the idea of doing a second year, which is highly unusual for me and work-for-hire properties. So Marvel sat down and looked at the numbers, as they wanted to do a second year too.

    What they found was that, at our current sales levels, they could afford for me to write it, but not for Stuart to draw it. Stuart, as a Marvel-exclusive artist, commands a fee commensurate with his astonishing talent. I’m WFH-exclusive too, but they just send me whisky and loose women and I’m fine. So, basically, I could continue to write NEXTWAVE, but we’d need to find another artist. This, to me, was just wrong. I mean, Stuart would obviously be given a far better job that had actual readers attached to it, but it still seemed a bit like the numbers were conspiring to fire him for doing his job too well. Everyone at Marvel pitched in to try and make it work, but the numbers were just against us.

    So NEXTWAVE #12 will be the final issue of the ongoing series.

    (To clear up a common misconception: NEXTWAVE was always pitched as an ongoing series. However, my original intent was to do 12 and then pass it on to someone else. This got garbled, somewhere down the chain of communication, and so the first issue or two got solicited as “part xxx of 12?.)

    However. The numbers game changes when you posit things in terms of limited series.

    NEXTWAVE #12 will be the last issue of the ongoing series: but there will be more NEXTWAVE to come, presented as a sequence of limited series.

    This was all worked out some months ago, so I had plenty of time to work the final NEXTWAVE sequence into a conclusion of sorts. #11 even features a twelve-page spread that you’ll have to buy six copies of the comic to assemble into its full splendour. Everyone wishes I’d thought of that eight or nine months ago.

    That was the news. Return to your duties.

    Even if it's screwed up, buy it anyway. They had an error on preordering Absolute Sandman that said it only cost $14, and they honored the sales they made before they fixed it.
