Kathryn confirmed it over here, but I wanted to hail its passing.
(Also I wanted an excuse to lob up this particular cover, which I loved)
Kathryn and Schiti had a nightmarishly difficult job, which they nailed. It was funny. It was human and humane. It was great. And people are singing the sadness of its particular loss already (here and here for two).
And let’s spin this to glass half full: 10 issues wasn’t bad at all.
In the same way that there were people saying that my JIM would last 8 issues, I suspect if you were the betting sort, “Sif Solo continuing from a book that was on 20k sales, without a creative team with a huge following, and no new #1” you’d have put your money on it only managing an arc.
It was something special, so beat the odds.
Think of its passing in a way I think Lady Sif may approve of:
This wasn’t a defeat. This was a victory.
And to paraphrase something from my own run:
It’s better to be good fiction for 10 issues than bad issues forever.
I raise a glass to all those who sailed the good ship Journey Into Mystery as it sets sail for Valhalla.
