    It's never easy when a book you love gets the axe, and it's even worse when it seems like it's hitting its stride after the fact. And while Jericho Drumm could certainly have a place somewhere in whatever Avengers permutation emerges out of Siege, I'm going to miss Remender's inspired handling of the former D-lister who's quickly becoming a heavy hitter in the Marvel U.

    I hope that after Doctor Voodoo gets some more exposure in whatever new Avengers incarnation he shows up in, that we might get to see a better planned return to the character. I really want to see where Remender was going with this. I guess an ongoing series was always a bit much to hope for when even the original Sorcerer Supreme can't sustain an ongoing anymore.

    While this title was originally intended to be an ongoing, perhaps this will give Marvel impetus to figure out how to handle comics starring magical characters. All the pieces seemed to be in place for this book to succeed, from an up-and-coming writer to a tie-in with Marvel's most successful current brand. It's a shame that Remender wasn't really given a chance to make this book shine. Unfortunately for fans of this character as well as the former Sorcerer Supreme, a title folding this quickly probably also bodes poorly for future endeavors in this direction. There is, however, one issue left. That issue promises to be a doozy, giving readers one last chance to celebrate with the Houngan Supreme. Read Full Review
