David Miller, I just read a couple of months back that Miller/Lee are planning on finishing it. Who knows when/if thatíll happen. Frankís supposed to be working on a new SIN CITY yarn right now set in the late 1800s.

Here are mine, and I am limiting my list to those books that were outright cancelled and not revived (or had been cancelled at their last revival and have not yet been resserected).  I realize it's a bit hard, seeing as the characters may have been further used elsewhere, just not in their own series.  Thus, as much as I'd love to see a Rip Hunter, Time Master revived, his later history and character has been too mucked up to pick up with issue #30, so I didn't include it in my list. Other, less used characters, I've considered.

Marvel

X-MEN: THE HIDDEN YEARS
HAWKEYE (The combo of Clint Barton and Kate Bishop are fine)
THE GHOST RIDER  (The western version, somehow using the original Carter Slade character, even though he was killed off. There are ways to reverse this, I'm sure)

DC

HAWK & DOVE (with Dawn, not Don).  If it's ever revived, I'l love it if the principal and supporting cast were also used again, and placed back in the College setting.
LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES (I know it's coming, but it's not with the early 20's version, which were last seen in Action Comics)
THE SECRET SIX (with the original cast, maybe without the threat held over them, since continuity revealed who Mockingbird was)
DIAL H FOR HERO - with young teenage Robby Reed (not the criminal asshole)
THE CHALLENGERS OF THE UNKNOWN (The original four, along with June Robbins)

Oh yeah, I remembered something more recent... I would've really liked The Legion Of Super-Heroes circa 2009 to have continued beyond #50. Jim Shooter was doing a great job writing starting from #37, but looked like someone did a rush final with #50 (not even a double-sized issue) to wind it up and relaunch yet again in a new Adventure Comics without Shooter. I have no idea what the story behind the scenes was. I'm pretty hard on Shooter sometimes so credit where he was doing an excellent job here! The earlier Mark Waid issues were fun for the most part and that seemed popular while he and Barry Kitson were the regular team, it was co-titled and co-starring Supergirl from #16-36.

What DC has done with The Legion Of Super-Heroes is criminal, period.

Robert, I may have to disagree with you slightly on "The Tomb of Dracula". I think that finished at just the right point.
