The last version of Ghost Rider lasted more than 30 issues plus a 5 issue mini finale. Cancelling it at #9 is a slap in the face to the fans.
What fans? If the book was canceled that quickly, clearly not enough people were reading it.
You realize 35 issues is 3 years of support? That mini to wrap up was always intended to be the next arc in the ongoing. Marvel decided to honor the arc but tried the stop/start/renumber in an effort to boost sales.

The industry has been in such a state the past decade that a book lasting past 25 issues (2yrs) is considered a modest success.
