Well, the most noticible one was Genesis, which after being the Most Important Thing Ever at the start of the story took a vback seat more and more until the end, where it either got a casual mention or was forgotten about entirely.

Genesis is the main one but there's other major plot set ups along the way that are left hanging or forgotten about...


and SPOILER WARNING

Another vote for Preacher, and while it may have caused controversy in the Megazine when they took the decision to run the story,it was actually having it reprinted in the Meg that got me reading it in the first place! Strange but true!

You're not the only one Robbie, prior to Preacher running in the Meg I thought all Marvel and DC comics were pap and the only decent comics around were tooth and Meg boy did I cange my opinion after Preacher, its also the only Comic aside from Lazarus Churchyard that my non comic reading friends read(I give him the ocasional Tooth but he doesn't have the patience to wait weekly).
Liked the end run on Xman as well and stayed with that to the bitter end.

When I stopped reading comics Milligans Enigma was about half way through but I stuck with it till the end. That was a top read, anyone else remember it?
Hmm, just pretend I wrote something witty eh?

ENIGMA was excellent.

I miss the old Milligan. Why can't we have the old Milligan back?

"Gah! How could I forget Hitman! That was greast from start to finish. Why the hell was it never collected properly?"

Apparently because there was no demand for it.

No demand? For a Garth bloody Ennis series? My arse.

I missed the start of Hitman but I would've stuck with it to the end if they kept releasing the fecking books.

The only comic I really stuck with to the end was Toxic crusader so it has to be the best one.
