I don't know about you guys but in my travels as a reader there have been comic strips I have grown to like, only to have them stopped for whatever reason and never seen again (ignoring any subsequent special or annual)

Here are a few examples that come to mind:

Dan Dare from 2000AD. You never find out what happens to him & Sondar after they were framed by the Mekon. A let down since Tharg did promise that he would return.

Blackhawk from 2000AD. I know a lot of people didn't like the 2000AD version but I did :P . I suppose he could have died in the black hole but did hope that he would return.

Timequake from Starlord. This strip just stopped when Starlord into 2000AD only to return once but was nothing like its Starlord incarnation. I loved the flirting relationship between Blocker and Suzi.

Doomlord from Eagle. One of my favourite strips. You never find out what happens to Enok after his other self perishes since the series went into reprint.
