Writer Sean McKeever announced on his mailing list this weekend that Marvel's 'Sentinel' series has been cancelled with issue #12. The full text of his letter is reprinted below.


I'm sorry to say that Sentinel has been cancelled, effective with

February's issue 12. If you've been following the sales charts, it should

come as no surprise.

I hope those of you who are reading the series stick with it to the end.

There are a couple developments I'm pretty sure people haven't seen

coming, and the ending--which would have remained the same had there been

an issue 13--will be sure to move you.

Despite the sad news, I feel I'm lucky. Writing Sentinel has been a

wonderful experience that I will never forget, and it has allowed me to

achieve my dream of never having to use an alarm clock again-- er, I mean,

becoming a full-time freelance fiction writer.

My thanks goes out to the readers. You've made Sentinel all that much more

fun to write. Thanks to the talented folks at Udon for their magical

artwork. Thanks to Joe Quesada for telling anyone who'd listen to give

Sentinel a try. And a special thank-you to editor Marc Sumerak, who has

been an amazing colleague and, most importantly, a good friend.

Sean McKeever
