Does anybody know whether the series has been cancelled? It is on hiatus at Image since October. I really miss it.

I swear I read an interview with Jay indicating it was still going but they were trying to get ahead enough to release the next arc on a real monthly basis. Found it. He actually posted that on 'not this' message board a month ago.

Cancelling Copperhead would be a crime against all that is good in comics. If you haven't already check out Dynamo 5 by Jay from a few years back. I was ready to quit comics all together until that gem popped up.

I tried Dynamo 5's first volume, but it just did not work for me. But Copperhead is one of my favorites ever. I think it's better than the so much hyped Saga.

We look at D5 differently but I get the Saga reference. I tried it and can see the appeal but it's just too far away from my comfort zone, I guess. Copperhead on the other hand has that whole Western vibe running with the sci-fi, and the characters may be more simple and straight forward in their own way but are compelling beyond their outer appearances.

Sounds like a book I need to check out! I enjoy everything I have ever read from Jay Faeber. Secret Identities, Dynamo 5, Noble Causes. The man crafts some excellent stories for sure!
