The book is going to last 25 issues. Due to low low sales, the writer and artist actually contemplated concluding the series sooner (see green wake), but have decided to stick it out with their labor of love.
It would be great to see this book do well in the primary market and help out creators instead of just the secondary market where it is flourishing now.
To me that about sums it up. I'd like to see the creators benefiting. For every Kirkman out there, there are thousands having to work 2nd and 3rd jobs while trying to put out great books.
