Well that was a short run. Before the series had a chance to start rolling, Marvel has canceled it. It lasted a whopping five issues. It’s not a bad comic but there was no interest in it. Maybe Marvel should have tried it out as a miniseries before making it an ongoing.

This issue wraps up the Nightmare story arc. After Doctor Voodoo’s fight with Doctor Doom in issue 1, Voodoo accidentally let Nightmare out in issue #2. He naturally attacked the Earth again. And yet again Nightmare ensnared the world in dreams and nightmares. Last issue Doctor Voodoo finally came to his senses and had joined forces with Doom to defeat Nightmare. This issue is just wrap up.

This series really didn’t get much of a chance. I certainly enjoy Voodoo as a character but I’m not sure when he will be making another appearance. Certainly not in another solo series. His only other option is to guest star in someone else’s title with the sole purpose of helping out some bigger named hero out of some supernatural trouble. Oh well. Maybe Remender can find the time now to work on some Fear Agent. (Shane Hnetka)
