LOVE FIGHTS CONCLUDES

Oni Press announced that Andi Watson's Love Fights, the publisher's third ongoing title, will conclude with #12 in August.

"Now, before anyone freaks out," Oni Press editor-in-chief Jamie S. Rich said, "you should know that this wasn't due to low sales or me kidnapping Andi Watson and taking him away to my mountain lair before James Lucas Jones could get his butterfingers on him. It's a simple case of creative choice. Andi originally planned two arcs of Love Fights, but eventually it became one 12-issue story that encompassed everything he wanted to say. He sat down to plan out the next story line and realized everything he came up with was too similar. Rather than give folks a retread of what had come before, he decided to give the book a vacation."

"We're probably the biggest Andi Watson fans there are," Oni publisher Joe Nozemack said, "and we trust his creative judgment. Though the market would accept more issues of Love Fights with zero protest, Oni Press is about giving creators the freedom to follow their muses. I look at this as a positive, not a negative. This is paving the way for more Andi Watson. Expect announcements shortly for more projects from Andi, including some Love Fights spin-offs and some real surprises."

The finale will ship on Aug. 26.

STAR WARS TRADING CARDS

This September, Topps will release a new card series, encompassing all six Star Wars movies -- including a sneak peek at the forthcoming final film, Star Wars: Episode III. Titled, Star Wars Heritage, the series is timed to coincide with the eagerly awaited Star Wars Trilogy DVD release.

"The melding of Star Wars with Topps Heritage is a great, natural fit," said Ira Friedman, Topps VP of Publishing and New Product Development. "The timeless appeal of Star Wars imagery -- combined with the nostalgia sensibilities of the Heritage brand ­ all adds up to one retro-cool collectible."

As with the sports-based Heritage releases, Star Wars Heritage features vintage card designs printed on greyback stock and a wrapped piece of bubblegum in every pack.

Topps selected photography that has never been seen before on its past cards. This required the editors to view many reels of actual footage and countless images from Lucasfilm's digital archives.

Insert cards include a new assortment of artist sketch cards, only included in hobby boxes. A select number of well-known Star Wars actors have agreed to come on board and provide their signatures for autograph cards. Participating artists, celebrity signers and other exciting content will be detailed prior to publication through the Companyıs website, www.topps.com.
