Publication

"Jeremiah" has been very successful, both critically and commercially, in Europe and has a large fan base. There have been attempts to introduce the series to the US market on several occasions without promising results, mostly due to different tastes of American and European comic book public.

"Jeremiah" is published in several languages, but the current holder of English language copy-rights is Strip Art Features.The series has reached a cult status in Europe. However it failed when it was introduced to the US in the early 1990s. Fact|date=June 2007 Strip Art Features attempted in collaboration with Dark Horse Comics to reestablish "Jeremiah" in the US in the early 2000s, with "Jeremiah: Gun in the Water".
