AMC Cancels Comic Book Men After 7 Seasons

Last night across his social media accounts, Kevin Smith revealed that AMC had opted to cancel his series Comic Book Men after seven seasons and 96 episodes.

His post was short, not naming specific reasons but urging fans to listen to the You Tell Em Steve Dave podcast for a “Viking funeral” for the show:

The podcast is long, and if you are a fan of Comic Book Men, you should definitely listen to it.

There is no official word on why the series is canceled — it could be anything from ratings to a shift to focus more on AMC’s drama lineup.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 

Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 

Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
