I think you're thinking of the Monster OGN that started life as a proposed Hulk story. They recently announced it was actually going to come out at some point. (I can't remember if they mentioned who would be publishing it, though.)

Did I miss why the project wasn't finished? Seems like it was mostly done...?

IIRC, it was actually going to be a mini-series (it was announced around the time his ongoing ended), not a graphic novel. Based on the number of pages posted, maybe he only got half way? No idea why he didn't get the other half done.

Well I read it and it was quite strange and un-superheroic for sure. Very moody, trying to be metaphysical (the anguish of being the Thing) and not always succeeding, sometimes funny but very repetitive and slightly going nowhere. I understand why it got cancelled, it certainly would have needed lots of work more in the writing department but since so much art was already finished...a fun read and a great find anyway.
