    I loved Ennis' characterization of Fury in the Punisher MAX run.

    Warren Ellis' Hellblazer run. As it is, his run on Hellblazer is just serviceable compared to the best runs on the title but if he hadn't left the title prematurely due to Paul Levitz's refusal to publish the Shoot story, I feel that his Hellblazer run could've turned into something special.

    I also wish that Diggle's Hellblazer run had gone on longer as well. I think Diggle confirmed on the Voices from Beyond Hellblazer forum that he ended his run earlier than he originally intended.

    And speaking of more Warren Ellis stuff, if he and Templesmith ever decide to finish Fell one day, that would be very great.

    I've always read that Diggle left when he wanted to. He didn't want to overstay his welcome, and the anniversary issue was coming up (HB 250), which gave him a natural out. His run is only behind Delano's and Ennis' for me.

    And yes, the world needs more Fell.

    I loved Incredible Herc, but by the time that Herc came around, I think the book had run its course. I think I've just resigned myself to the idea that we can only get awesome Hercules books every twenty years or so.

    Strangehaven is coming back in a future A1 Annual. No news on a continuing series, though.

    Grant Morrison on Batman and Robin with Dick and Damian as the dynamic duo. The 3 story arcs with a different artist on each one was great and should have continued. He even said himself he would have wrote Dick and Damian B&R forever if he could.

    OMAC. Either Kirby or New 52. Neither of them should have ended at 8 issues.

    Does anybody here remember Augustyn and Ramos's Out There? It was a pretty great little horror book about disparate teens banding together when they find out that their small Californian town is ground zero for a demon invasion that was predicted in an obscure comic book (so meta!) a few years earlier. I've been meaning to track down all 18 issues, but I think I only ever made it to issue 7 or so.

    I'd love to add my voice to the choir about Ellis and Templesmith's Fell. What a great series. 9 issues is criminally short, though I'm so glad that the first 8 issues are in trade form, at least. Image should've really ran with the whole Slimline imprint idea. I thought it was really great and the stories they were telling in the first run on Casanova were fantastic; that series seems a little lost in a mire at the moment.

    Love Giffen in general. Loved his OMAC run.

    Wait, does this mean that JLA 3000 is going to be canceled?!

When they found out they were going to be cancelled, they made a brilliant time-travel story that told you a lot of stuff they were going to do with the book. It only made it to 15 issues, but Dark Horse published a collection not long ago and it's one of the funniest series I've read.
    Major Bummer is so great. It's the peak of 90s nostalgia for me. [wipes away single tear]

    JL 3000 is ending but it's continued with JL 3001 by the same creative team.
