First off, the news I was most happy to hear was there will be a Rogue Squadron mini-series coming out later this year, or early next year. It will be written by Hayden Blackman (Republic #51-53 and Jango Fett: Open Seasons). No artist announced as yet.

But on a sad note, the newly revamped Tales series that I love so much will be ending in two issues with #24. I told Jeremy that I was sad to see it go, but he feels he got one good year out of the book as editor as is proud to have had that chance. I agree. Hopefully there's some other anthology format they can try in the future.

In the undecided column comes this news. Both Empire and Republic will be cancelled as of the end of the year. Both books will be 'revamped for 2006', but exactly what that means I couldn't weasel out of the Dark Horse editors. I know some staffers at Dark Horse as well as fans are interested in seeing the numbering of Republic continue. But either way, Jeremy ensured me that fans will be most pleased with the new directions.

One last bit -- I asked about the upcoming Comic Companion book and the depth and amount of info contained in it. This 200 page issue which will supposedly cover over 600+ comics will have cover art thumbnails, as well as some interior art pieces. It will then briefly summarize each issue chronologically. Look for it on July 27.
