    Cause if so, you know, I think I'm gonna drop it. So, is he done? Or is this just a break for an issue or 2 like he's done before?

    His last issue was 12.

    Why would you drop a series before you've even read the new interpretation?

    Seriously. I don't understand that. Cooke is really the absolute only thing that's enjoyable about the Spirit to people?

    When lots of people drop books because their favorite creators have moved on, they tend to get cancelled, whether the replacement is doing a good job or not.

    I'm just not interested if it's not Cooke...he seemed to have a plan, and was going somewhere with the entire Octopus thing. I know he resolved the El Murte issue, but it still doesnt seem like an actual conclusion to where he was going. And the non-Cooke Spirit I've read (summer issue, holiday issue, etc.) just werent enjoyable to me. As GAH said though, if I hear good things, I might pick up back issues later.

    That's not subjective, that just means you have bad taste, which we already knew.

    I don't think The Spirit got cancelled; it's projected out through issue 17 I believe. Is there some news out there I missed?

    Oh, okay. Thanks. Not that I'm collecting them since Cooke left, I was just wondering if they had dropped the boom on the new team already.
