The end of Fear Agent...are you still waiting?

Hey everyone,

On his Twitter feed fans of Fear Agent have been asking writer Rick Remender when the last two issues of the series will be released by Dark Horse. He responded with this;

"Fear Agent 31 an 32 have to be resolicited due to lateness. They are done, but I guess they won't be out until October. Nothing to be done."

I have not been involved in any back room discussions about the book, but I do know they are finished. I wrapped up the pencils BEFORE I started on Conan (which I've penciled 7 issues of, so it's been a while since I wrapped Fear Agent). I've also seen colored and lettered PDF files of the missing Fear Agent comics. So I assure you, it's all finished.

I'm sure there are good reasons for holding off on the release of comics. Fear Agent is a beloved series, and this is the last arc, so I'm guessing no one is in a hurry to just throw it out there. But the truth is I don't know what those reasons are. I just wanted to disparage any one from thinking the book is late because it's not done, or that anyone is running late. Everyone has worked hard to make the last arc special, and I for one am proud of how it turned out.

So, if you're a fan of the series, all I can say is please bare with us. Your patience will be rewarded, I promise. If you've been following along with Heath's ups and downs, then the end of this thing is going to break your heart and make you smile. Rick wraps up everything beautifully.
