The first of Warren Ellis and Leonardo Manco's issues, which more than anything inspired the TV series, was gone, replaced with the earlier first issue of that series. This is likely to come as a result of many accusations made against Warren Ellis during the summer and saw him withdraw from a number of comic book projects and a number cancelled, including an upcoming Batman title. However, Marvel does continue to reprint Warren's work on Hellstorm in collections and DC continues to publish The Batman's Grave and issue new collections of Transmetropolitan.
