Marvel's latest "Black Knight" title will end in March with issue #5, series writer Frank Tieri has confirmed on Facebook. Marvel declined comment when reached by CBR News.

"It sucks and there's a lot I could say about it but in the end, the bottom line is the market is what it is these days and the sales just weren't there," Tieri wrote. "It was an honor and a privilege to bring Dane's adventures in Weirdworld to you -- and we're not quite done yet as we'll be wrapping up our storyline which actually can act as a limited series the way it's structured."

The book was absent from Marvel's April 2016 solicitations, leaving observers curious about the status of the series. Written by Tieri and illustrated by Luca Pizzari, "Black Knight' was part of Marvel's post-"Secret Wars" All-New, All-Different Marvel initiative and launched in November.

Here's the solicitation tet for "Black Knight" #5, scheduled for release on March 9:
