Kieron Gillen confirmed via his blog on tumblr what fans may have feared after reading Marvel's February 2014 solicitations: Young Avengers ends after issue 15.
Gillen revealed that he and series artist Jamie McKelvie's plans were always to have a contained story and end the title after they made their statement. It appears it took 15 issues to make their statement as they decided to decline more issues when Marvel asked.
So folks, you have until January 2014 to gather up all your feels for the book. There will be no after party after the "Afterparty" issue.
Series editor Lauren Sankovitch is philosophical about it saying that Young Avengers is always in short seasons and wants to "institutionalize" that format. Gillen assured fans that the series would "be back in an excellent new form at a future point".
