The last I heard of Martin Wagner, he'd posted a long screed about how people just weren't supporting his book and it was the fans' fault for not rallying behind it, so he was leaving comics.
(Nevermind that he couldn't finish 4-page back-ups for the Antarctic Press reprints of #1-12, or that he constantly took money from people and never delivered product.)
I enjoyed HEPCATS a great deal, but I can't help but feel that Wagner's troubles were ones that were, for the most part, self-inflicted.
