** Given that [[DeadFic dead fics]] are often of the other ten percent, and that the ten percent often SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove, it can be incredibly depressing or frustrating to an author to see that the ninety percent of crap gets more attention than their decently written fic ever will.

* The decade of the 2000s is littered with the corpses of failed English-language manga publishers, most of whom only had a few series before dying. Casualties include Studio Ironcat, [=ComicsOne=], and DCComics-backed CMX (who at least got out all of ''Manga/VictorianRomanceEmma'' before Dan Didio killed it).

* The decade of the 2000s is littered with the corpses of failed English-language manga publishers, most of whom only had a few series before dying. Casualties include Studio Ironcat, [=ComicsOne=], and DCComics-backed Creator/DCComics-backed CMX (who at least got out all of ''Manga/VictorianRomanceEmma'' before Dan Didio killed it).



* In the early '00s there was a quirky British comic titled ''ComicBook/BazookaJules'', by [[http://steve-huge.deviantart.com/ Neil Googe]], about a 16-year-old schoolgirl named Julie Glocke who gets mixed up in a plot involving aliens and super-science and gains the ability to turn into a [[GagBoobs ridiculously well-endowed]] ActionGirl who can spontaneously pull [[{{BFG}} gigantic pieces of armament]] out of thin air (that is to say, she has "big guns" of both kinds. *groan*). It was criticized for the underage {{Fanservice}}, but fans and critics enjoyed the humor and Googe's expressive art style. Anyway, around issue #3 (it was planned to run for six), Googe took seriously ill and someone broke into the publisher's building, stealing the material for the planned future issues, which were never recovered. Googe got better and planned a relaunch of the series with artist [=LeShawn=] Thomas, but before it got off the ground they hit some copyright issues, Thomas left to do animation work on ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'', and Googe himself eventually signed an exclusive deal with DCComics, where he now works on their ''Wildstorm'' imprint. Neil Googe has retained Julie as a sort of signature character, but as a comic, ''Bazooka Jules'' seems to be as dead as it gets at this point.

* As stated above in Manga/Anime, Grupo Editorial Vid. It was the most important publisher of comics for the Mexican market, but then since the first half of the 2000's decade, they started to have problems, like losing the rights to publish MarvelComics in Spanish, then they lost the rights to publish DCComics, Image, DarkHorse, etc. Thankfully, other publishers decided to work on these titles.

** The English translation of ''Manga/{{Life}}'' was cut short by [=TokyoPop=], meaning over half of the series has never been released internationally.

* ''Manga/MillenniumSnow'' was orphaned by Bisco Hatori in 2002 after her breakout hit ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' got popular. After finishing Ouran she would eventually return to and finish Millennium Snow in 2013, just over 10 years later

* The English translation of the ''KingdomHearts'' manga ended on ''Kingdom Hearts II Vol. 2'' after [=TokyoPop=] decided to discontinue the series due to financial problems.
** Good that there are [[{{Scanlation}} fans who translate where TokyoPop can't, right?]]
** The series has since been picked up by ''Yen Press'', and as of October 2013, the manga adaptations for the [[{{Manga/KingdomHeartsI}} first]] [[{{Manga/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories}} three]] [[{{Manga/KingdomHeartsII}} games]] has been re-released, with [[{{Manga/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2}} another one]] upcoming.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/{{Prism}}'' ended up being put on "hiatus" then eventually cancelled due to a plagiarism scandal. The mangaka has done other series since.

* For a long time, the manga ''DNAngel'' appeared to be an example, having been put on a hiatus for over two years. However, the mangaka has started writing chapters for it again.

* And speaking of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' -- about half of stories on fimfiction.net are either "Cancelled", "On Hiatus" or "Incomplete" with no updates in the last 2 years or more.

* ''WebVideo/TheWebsiteIsDown'' released 5 videos in 2009 and 1 more in 2011. The last one was titled ''Episode 4.5: Chipadmin part 1''. More were promised to come soon, but haven't appeared yet (as of January 2015). Meanwhile the site is slowly deteriorating, for example the blog domain expired years ago.

* While the remakes of VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar [[CapcomSequelStagnation may very well never end]], it's safe to say we will probably never have a brand new installment in the {{Lunar}} series, due to Studio Alex no longer existing and the absolute trainwreck that was LunarDragonSong. Sad, because a "Lunar 3" was apparently in development at one point.

* ''Manga/AquaKnight'' was abandoned by the author in order to work on ''{{Gunnm}}: Last Order''. He promises to be back later in the future, but the longer ''Last Order'' runs the less likely this seems.
