As revealed on his blog, Paul Cornell and Ryan Kelly's Saucer Country is coming to a close with issue #14. This is yet another assumed nail in the Vertigo coffin, as this will leave three ongoings going forwards in what used to be a widespread and prolific line.
But this isn't the end of Saucer Country forever. As Cornell writes,
The cancellation happened just as Ryan had nearly finished drawing the first issue of what will now be our last arc. I therefore had to decide whether or not I could use that completed issue as a starting point for a final plot that, in two more issues, could end our entire story in a satisfying way. After much thought, I decided it couldn't be done without turning the remaining issues into, well, just lists of things that happened. There were just too many questions to answer, too many plot points to fit.
So I've opted to complete the arc as planned, with maybe an added ˜end of season' feel, and finishSaucer Country on an ˜end of volume one' note, with a big outcome decided (the last three issues are set on election night) and one enormous (and complete) reveal of the truth behind one of our mysteries. But this will not be an ending, and you won't learn what really happened to Arcadia on the night she was abducted.
I know that'll disappoint our loyal audience. So I make this promise to you: I will, one day, finishSaucer Country, in one way or another, in a dramatically satisfying way. That is to say, I won't just put up the remainder of the plot on my blog or something, I'll find a professional means to actually complete the story, ideally in comic book form, or as a novel or, hey, go on, a movie. The rights revert to me reasonably soon. We'll work from there.
Cornell will be seen at Marvel writing Wolverine in the mean time, and Ryan Kelly can be found making Cocotte, Funrama, Three for Image Comics with Kieron Gillen and hopefully much more soon and/or something I've forgot (which I will happily update the post with, if anyone has a link).
Here's the final solicit:
