Reading Room MEDUSA CHAIN Conclusion

Read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4. and Part 5.
Then ask yourself...
I'd like to be able to say "The Medusa Chain will continue...", but it didn't.
Unfortunately, the book (and most of the DC Graphic Novel series) sold poorly, and the project ended after only six issues.
(The exception was Jack Kirby's The Hunger Dogs.)
It was revived a year later as DC Science Fiction Graphic Novel, using adaptations of prose novels by big genre names like Robert Bloch, Harlan Ellison and Ray Bradbury and comics pros like Keith Giffen and Klaus Janson, but fared equally-poorly, ending after seven issues.
