The last issue, #9, was published in August 2001 and had a cliffhanger ending that was never concluded, as #10 (scheduled for November 2001) was not released for over 20 years; Joe Madureira left the comic industry to pursue a career as a video game designer. In February 2023, Image Comics announced a planned release of issue #10, scheduled for June of that year.
