Bad news for fans of DC’s comic I, Vampire – it has been canceled. Sad face. The very last issue will be #19. Booo!
Launched in September 2011 as part of DC’s New 52, I, Vampire paired up writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and artist Andrea Sorrentino for a revival of the horror-romance serial that appeared from 1980 to 1983 in the House of Mystery anthology. Even though the series started out strong, with the debut issue selling nearly 36,000, eventually it went downhill and by the 14th issue that figure had slid below the 14,000 mark.
“Yep. I, Vampire is done as of 19. It’s been an amazing ride,” Fialkov wrote on Twitter. “Thanks to all of my collaborators and stay tuned for the kickass conclusion. I’ve known For almost four months and got to write the ending I wanted. No complaints.”
He may not have any complaints, but I’m sure the fans won’t be too pleased with the end of I, Vampire. It’s a sad day for comics. I, Vampire was visually stunning and the storyline was intriguing. I hate to see it go.
