Jimmy Palmiotti, who writes two of the series being canceled, had this to say on his Facebook account Monday evening:

Hey Crew, all good things come to an end, but we plan on going out in a spectacular fashion with one of the most heartfelt tales we could deliver, drawn by the amazing Darwyn Cooke, in the last issue of ALL STAR WESTERN, #34. Thanks for all the well wishes and for supporting our 105 Jonah Hex issues over the years. This was a run which we honestly could never have done without everyone’s support. We hope you give our new title Star Spangled War Stories featuring G. I. Zombie the same shot you gave Jonah all those years ago. The book can be pre-ordered now and comes out in July.

Anyway, thanks again for all the love and support. We are not going anywhere, just moving on to other titles and characters. It’s a part of the business that is part sad and totally exciting at the same time. My personal thanks goes out to all the amazing artists we have worked with for the last 7 years. A more talented crew you will find nowhere else.

Thanks,

Jimmy
