    Default CBR: Faerber Concludes "Noble Causes"

    Jay Faerber’s creator-owned superhero universe is going to get smaller this fall
    with the end of his long-running “Noble Causes." The writer talks to CBR about
    the decision to end the book and what it means for the Faerberverse.

    NOOOOOO!!!

    I love Noble Causes... behind Invincible and Walking Dead it is the series I look most forward to every month...

    I just hope the new book by Faerber and Cinar can be half as good as it is.

    The "Faeberverse" is one of the most character-rich universes out there, period. I kind of fluctuated with Noble Causes and Invinicible because I joined those books so late in their run, but I was determined to get on board with Dynamo 5 from day one.

    The Nobles will live on...



    EDIT: Yes, I know Robert Kirkman was behind Invincible, but I still read it alongside Noble Causes...

    Disappointing, but it's better to go out on a high note. Leave us wanting more and all that.

    Sales were low. It's that simple. It is damned hard to find an audience for an ongoing outside of Marvel and DC. Somehow he has found enough of an audience for DYNAMO5 and good for him. It's a pretty good read.

    I hope this doesn't preclude an occasional mini series or one shot story.

    I'm hoping that the characters will show up in the other Faerberverse titles....or even other Image series. That's what great about the shared universe, anybody can show up.
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer.

    And either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives.
