Warren's good stuff is always over far quicker than you'd like. The bad stuff always overstays its welcome. Only TRANSMETROPOLITAN, I think, seems just the right length.

IIRC it was actually that the artist wanted to do something different.

Also, I'm actually kind of glad it ended while it was still awesome.

The version I heard was that Marvel wanted to put Immonen on a more high-profile book (Ult. Spidey, I guess), and Ellis didn't want to continue NextWave without him. There was talk at the time of them reuniting for the occasional miniseries or something, but I'm not holding my breath.

I recall there something about Marvel being willing to pay Warren Ellis to continue the series but not Immonen as well. Ellis opted to just put Nextwave to rest because it wouldn't be the same with another artist.

Sales weren't high enough the sustain the salaries of the superstar team of Ellis and Immonen was the news floating about at the time, as I recall.

Yeah, that was pretty much it. Marvel had announced Immonen as one of their "Young Guns" and the sales for the book didn't reflect that, so they moved him to Ultimate Spider-man when Bagley left. Ellis was given the option of continuing with someone else and, quite rightly, stated it wouldn't be Nextwave without Immonen, so they wound the book up.

You know, I wouldn't be surprised if koalas really are cuddly bears of death IRL. They always look so calm that you know they're just waiting for the moment to bite you.

They are, as I understand it, often stoned and mean drunks. With claws.

Wowzers! I had heard "drop bears" as a meme, I had seen the falling koalas panel, but I never knew where it was from 'til now.

Aaron is such a magnificent bastard.
