Jeff Parker posted over at his blog Parkerspace that Exiles will be canceled as of issue #6. Here’s a portion of what he had to say:
As for EXILES… well, as they say, you can’t save every patient. The best we did was a momentary blip with issue one of the relaunch, and sales went right back to where they were previously. In hindsight, maybe we should have waited a year or two before trying it. It was a blow to me, I was having a great time working with Salva Espin and Casey Jones, and felt I was getting into a good groove with issues that you’ll never see. At least Marvel did me a solid and gave me a double sized issue in 6 to wrap things up. Curious to see what you think of how it… choke… ends.
I guess that’s just one more Marvel book I won’t be buying in the near future. It could have been worse though. It could have been Agents of Atlas getting the chop. This book just got started and was pretty fun. I can’t believe it couldn’t last more than 6 issues. Most good books just can’t seem to survive in this industry. Speaking of which I will have my review of the last issue of Captain Britain and MI13 up later on.
