Animal Man Series Coming to an End in March

Yes,  the sad news was announced that Animal Man will end in March with issue #29.  What is unusual though was that it wasn't announced by DC, but by series writer Jeff Lemire on twitter.

"After finishing the script for #29, I felt I had completed the story I wanted to tell with the Baker family and thought it was a perfect ending for the series.   The best way for me to explore new things with the character would be to move him to a team setting and shake up his status quo. DC agreed, and the Animal Man series will end with my final issue in March."

I guess that DC just couldn't see Animal Man continuing without Lemire and I guess I'm with them.  I was late getting into Animal Man, but I gave Animal Man Annual #1 a perfect 10 (my first perfect score) and have enjoyed it since.  While it's a shame the book is ending, Buddy is going to be a big part of Justice League Canada so I can't wait to read it.
