The creators of The Once And Future Queen, Adam P. Knave, D.J. Kirkbride, Nick Brokenshire, and Frank Cvetkovic, posted a letter to Knave’s blog announcing the cancellation of the series after just two issues. But all is not lost. Though the planned issues #3-5 will not be released in print or digital, they will be collected into a trade paperback. The creators explain in the blog post:
What has happened? Issues #3–#5 of The Once and Future Queen have been cancelled, in print and digital. But there will still be a trade collection of the full series released in November. You can order it by clicking here, right now, in fact.
Why did this happen? The comic industry is a fickle thing. The Once and Future Queen was well received by press and its readers, and while it was growing in market awareness, print efforts have been shifted to the book market so we can grow and reach our target audience.
Dark Horse, who published the first two issues, will also publish the trade paperback.
