That [censored] SUCKS! What the hell, man?!?! This is one of the a.) most well written, b.) beautiful to the eye books on the stands. This is ending? That is just WRONG WRONG WRONG. Man!
Cancel Uncanny X-Men, don't cancel Dr. Voodoo!!!! :(
(tears of rage)
I should have asked Santa to bring me that Nextwave/X-Statix/Dr. Voodoo crossover I always wanted. Dr. Voodoo now enters the halls of books too good to live!!!

You know what they should do?
They should launch a new book called "Wolverine: Mystic" or "Deadpool: The Unreal" or something, and have the aforementioned character show up once or twice to fight some bad guys in New Orleans, but the book will REALLY be about Dr. Voodoo, off doing his thing. With the same exact creative team, please.
That's the thing... every trick or gimmick a comic book publisher will use to try and artificially get people to buy a book (event tie-ins, variet covers, cross over, guest stars, etc) will cause somewhat of a backlash. I'm not saying they shouldn't necessarily do it... but there's a bit of a price tag attached.
Unfortunately, I think it's time for Dr. Strange and the Silver Surfer to join the Dark/Darker/Darkest Avengers. It's the ONLY way fans will buy them today. *cries*

And not to turn this into a SW argument, Jess can't fly. She glides. There are spiders that can do that. As for the venom blast, think of it as a wasp's sting. Its really not that hard to see how it does make sense.
Back on topic though, I'm sad to see this titled cancelled. I picked it up solely off of Remender's interview where he was talking about all the research he did for the book and I could feel his passion for the book so I gave it a shot an liked it. I'm going to write Marvel a letter bout this.
Some characters (even characters that are a lot more popular then Brother/Doctor Voodoo) just can't carry/sustain their own ongoing series. It was both stupid and a wasted of money and time to put out an ongoing DOCTOR VOODOO series.
Characters like DV are better off being a part of a team and should be in team books. I could see DV being a member of a new DEFENDERS book along side Doc Samson,Nighthawk (Kyle Richmond),Namor,Midnight Son,Blade,and Valkrya.
This just in: Chris Sprouse has pulled out of Orson Scott Card.
I know with me, I was curious but no issues made the shelf at my local shop and I'm already getting a bunch of titles with tons of extra issues being pushed out for them. Marvel and DC seem to be kind of flooding with titles right now.
I really liked Bendis/Maleev's run on Daredevil but I haven't even followed up on their Spider-woman for kind of the same reason. I wouldn't have mind checking out Mark Waid's Dr. Strange but it was likewise in the same boat.
Are the majority of LCS' so crappy that they don't even run pull lists/subscriptions?
This sucks. i really liked the series and the character! There was so much potential especially with the idea of adding the Loas into the mix. I really love the comic book and it pains me to know that its going to be ending. I wish that Marvel could do something to keep the series going. I loved the art and the character himself. I hope he is used well in other comic books.

What they should have done was keep Dr. Voodoo on the Avengers for a year or so before launching a solo book. Unless your name was Fred Hembeck, this wasn't exactly a "Because You Demanded It!" title. The lead-up blew.
