That ain't fun when the series is in danger of being canceled, which Viz
is notorious for doing. Remember Game On! USA magazine? They serialized
Samurai Shodown manga and the magazine was canceled before the series ran
its course. Guess who the publisher was? Those clowns never sent me the
promised refund check for the unfulfilled subscription either.

Well, there were a few pages of that in the first TPB that just came out,
along with character profiles.
