Was That The Last Issue Of Haunt?

Haunt #29 was published yesterday with rather an explosive ending and the line;

It was the last issue to be written by Joe Casey and subsequent issues have been solicited with Todd McFarlane as a writer.

The question asked by a number is… has the book actually been cancelled with the current issue? Were the subsequent solicitations faked? And wha’s actualy going on?

Todd McFarlane told Bleeding Cool;

Rich…I am looking to retool the book and make it more creepy. I want the word HAUNT to be much more meaningful to the impact of the stories in the future. I can introduce some new ideas for the book within the pages of SPAWN then bring the title back out again.

It’s a relaunch folks!

Here’s what could have been…
