On 9 February2001, Decipher purchased the assets of FANtastic Media, including the Fan Club, and continued publication of Communicator. In 2005, the company announced the cancellation of the magazine after issue 155, citing complaints about subscription mailing delays as well as threats of lawsuits; the underlying cause was financial, due to the collapse of the card gaming industry that was Decipher's mainstay. Attempts to revive the publication by creator/club founder Dan Madsen and managing editor Larry Nemecek have, to date, been unsuccessful.
