According to one of the comic artists for Skylanders, Jack Lawrence, the comic series was wound down so as not to compete with the Netflix show for continuity.

That's too bad! I loved the comics, and they really had integrity and continuity with the games. But I understand why they would make this move. Perhaps we may eventually get comics based on Academy? Probably not, but who knows.
I'm so angry at this news, we will never know the whole Malefor thing.
I was waiting for this official announcement.
It was kind of obvious that this would happen when it was revealed that they would be doing Sonic the Hedgehog comics in replacement of Archie.

Still, sad to see these go...
Great,Just Great more bad things are happening to Skylanders,This is just sad for Skylanders Fans Sad
It was inevitable, mate.
IDW moved on.
Knew this was going to happen. We haven't had any new comics in forever anyways. I'd rather have the show than the comics.
Well the show is more popular,I'll give you that

Cover for scrapped Skylanders SuperChargers Issue#6

POR QUE?!! POR QUE?!! Two of the villain senseis with the an epic cover they didn't even use.
You know what's the worst?

Will never know the whole Malefor thing in the comics, bad move, bad move.
Unless he's introduced into the main series.
Somehow, though, I doubt it...

But at least we have the Netflix series. And Season 3 isn't too far away, either.
Academy Malefor is a different and the Netflix show is disapointing with Malefor's backstory.

Also that cover is the same artist who did the cover for Gameinformer, huh?
Well, they did briefly go over it, so you have a point...
Maybe they'll expand upon it further in Season 3?

As for the cover artist, well, I wouldn't know. I was never really the kind of guy to get Gameinformer.
It's good art, nonetheless. I'll give it that!
Now to merely speculate on what it could have possible been about.
I don't think they follow the main series canon, and I don't think it will have the same thing.

The top 100 RPGs cover.
