Take this with a grain of salt until something concrete proves or disproves it, but according to this post on the Literature section of the TF.N boards under the thread "Redundant, Counter-Productive Speculation Time: Randy Stradley teases a "huge announcement", , page 9, a much hyped upcoming comics announcement by Randy Stradley may be getting the axe:
TheForce.net Main Page News of the Future said:
Rumor: Disney Cancels Rumored Dark Horse Announcement?
One ostensible source familiar with the rumored ongoing developments at Lucasfilm has reportedly told us through morse code written on the subway walls that Disney has apparently cancelled the previously-conjectured Dark Horse announcement that may or may not have had purportedly ground-breaking ramifications for the comic's supposedly ongoing franchise.
When asked to clarify, Randy Stradley, Dark Horse's current Vice President of Publishing, was rumored to have possibly tweeted: "[sic]Everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We'll all fine here now, thank you. How are you?"
TFN will continue to provide updates on this story as it develops.
After seeing this post, I immediately went to TF.N's news page to look for this article, but there is no such article on the Latest News page. So either this poster is flat out lying, or the announcement just hasn't been posted on the News page yet: hence why I said to take it with a grain of salt.
If it's not true then we have nothing to worry about. But if it is true ... well, let me just say the news of all these cancellations is getting a little tiresome. I don't really care about the video games or Detours and TCW couldn't have gone on much longer without running into real problems, but why so many, so fast? I understand they want to focus on the Sequel Trilogy, but all these cancellations in less than a month is just too much. What next, will they cancel Kemp's duology, Golden's SOTJ trilogy, the Rebels Series, and Maul: Lockdown?
Just ... slow down!
Edit: Still nothing on TF.N, but the corresponding announcement thread on the DH boards has now been inexplicably locked. Don't know what to make of this at all ... what is going on?
