Just checked Image's website and still listed as TBD. It might be due to the fact that Johnathan Hickman is doing the writing on a couple of the new Marvel Now Avengers books or that Manhattan Projects took off.

Well I feel like they'll need to start over and release a 3rd print to get things going again if they ever come around. I did enjoy the cybercrime element of the whole thing being in IT in all. I feel like the characters were a bit more gritty than the Thief of Thieves and could the plot could easily stand on it's own in the AMC universe. "They" have done the thief style shows before and I feel like have a cybercrime element in the storyline would cell better.

IIRC, there was a message by Hickman to the readers in the back of Manhattan Projects #7 re: the scheduling problems.. I don't have mine with me at the moment, if someone could look in theirs and see..

Big signatures are REALLY annoying.

I'm a developer and app architect for SharePoint and MS SQL. My company just got on CRM Online so I need to get up-to-speed on integrating that with our on premise SharePoint system. So that's what I do in a nutshell. How long have you been an Oracle DBA?

Just read on another forum that the expected release date is around Christmas. Also someone there mentioned that according to Hickman the series will end sooner then originally planned. No info on how short the series would be.

Weird...I still haven't heard anything on this. Maybe they have shelved it for good.

Series canceled, artist never completly finished issue 3. Supposedly issue three may eventually be released and Hickman will finish series in words/letter column.

I read on another forum but I believe they quoted Hickman's twitter account. Will look for more concrete source when I have more time.

Looked on Hickman's Formspring thread and I quote "I doubt it's going to happen beyond the third issue", while answering a question about getting back to Secret. Also according to Heavyink.com the new release date for the thrid issue is 6/25/13.

Based on all I have read it pretty much points to the artist not being able to keep up with deadlines. I believe because of this all new books for Image have to have 3 issues completed before they will solicit issue #1.

this.

i'm strictly a fan, and admittedly not qualified to criticize in detail (only rant & rave), but i just don't get how a writer / publisher can hold a project in such low regard that when trouble starts to brew (and it's been obvious for awhile now), they don't take action... hold people accountable and get some talent on the title to get the book 'on the stands'.

and to me, it only makes it worse when they (aforementioned writer / publisher) demonstrate how they hold US (target audience / fans) in equally low regard by not releasing information and updates on stalled projects.
