Nailbiter

Anyone else read Joshua Williamson's nailbiter and surprised/upset that it is ending in march.

They say it is a double issue and that the series is coming to it's natural conclusion but it feels very rushed to me. I had assumed the book would run for 60 issues like y the last man and chew, or maybe 50 like the sixth gun (it had more than fifty with it's multiple spin offs. 30 issues just seems too short to me. Plus if you read it there feels like there is so much more story to tell.

I read it but have kinda lost interest. It doesn't feel like March will give them enough time to explain everything though...

My only problem is all of the killers seemed awful lame.

The Nailbiter himself was pretty great. I liked him. And the FBI agent who went crazy.

And the sheriff's daughter...

I was referring to the originals. Before the nailbiter. Though even he was a bit lame. They came off a bit like the characters from that movie mystery men.

well that sounds disappointing, I was really enjoying Nailbiter and been picking up the trades.

How so? The gimmick of the Nailbiter is pretty unique, which has to be hard for the series... come up with a bunch of fictional serial killers, all with their own unique "flair."

But yeah, this series kinda lost me. I'll pick it up again someday and read it all the way through, but a lot of series lose me once they start putting the story brakes on and dragging things out.

I actually haven't read "Saga" in months, either. Need to get back to that one, but I just lost track of it month to month.

I couldn't even get through the first issue of saga. I'm just hoping the over all mystery pays off. Same with morning glories which has been om hiatus since like July.

One more issue left. My letter was published in issue 29. I also answered their survey and it was printed.

Read the latest issue.

Eh.

Nailbiter lost me long ago, and it hasn't gotten me back. Too bad. Hope the rest of you enjoy the last issue.
