    This is ridiculous. The thing I hate most about being a comic book fan is that publishers and creators hardly ever give you any specific information about when a book may return and leave you hanging for what actually turns out to be years. It's unfair and a poor way to treat your readers. I hope FF enjoys his poor sales due to lack of interest after almost 2 years of waiting for the new series, he deserves it at this point.

    I think that sales are precisely why we don't have a sequel for Black Beetle. His work-for hire work is selling way better than Black Beetle did.

    Francavilla himself said back in early 2014 that the interest in Black Beetle : Necrologue was huge so I don't think sales are a factor.

    It's frustrating but any information at this point will just lead to more broken promises, I guarantee this though, if and when this finally does come out IT WILL SELL!!!

    Not necessarily . . . depending on how long it's delayed, people who would have bought it may have moved on to other things and have lost interest (whether it be in the character / genre, or interest in comic books in general).

    Only this.
    I expect we'll see The Black Beetle in Dark Horse's December solicitations.

    Now, it would really be sweet if there was a month where we could buy a new issue of Black Beetle AND a new issue of Lobster Johnson, too.

    But, unfortunately, do I really want to pay for an issue of DHP to get just one story in it?

    I think its reasonable to expect that it will get collected eventually, but thats another 6-9 months of waiting..?
