Ah! Then maybe we can get Ghost Talker's Daydream finished out finally or maybe Seraphic Feather? With partnerships may come dreams....

You do like to dream big don't you? Those are only two of many manga titles Dark Horse has dropped incomplete. As much as I would like to see a continuation of Ghost Talkers Daydream, I'm fairly sure it will not happen.

As best as I can tell, except for trying to wring the last dime out of a few existing licenses, Dark Horse has been trying to get out of manga for a few years now. There have been very few new licenses in the last few years.

I honestly have more series from them that were dropped than complete. Drakuun, Reiko, Cannon God, Ghost Talker, Seraphic Feather, 3x3 Eyes, You're Under Arrest, Shadow Star, Venus Wars, etc... I'm apparently very talented at picking their underperforming series.

Kurosagi has finally gotten a slight furthering with a new Omnibus release covering a bit not in the original singles, though. And Lone Wolf & Cub has finally been getting reprinted lately, so maybe this has been helping in some regard. I could see it being the reason some gears have started moving again.

I think they actually printed all of Venus Wars, at any rate they completed two full story arcs. This should have been enough to equal the four volumes issued in Japan. The problem is that only part of the first story arc was published in a trade paperback. The rest only came out in floppy form.

You can add Rebel Sword to the list of incomplete titles.

Hopefully this means that we can finally get a lot of oop and/or hiatus manga back as is the case of lone wolf and cub (omnibus or single (maybe both)) and more of Kazou Koike's work and cross fingers mpd psycho, maybe an omnibus edition of mail, and wandering emanon vol 4 (and more of Kenji Tsuruta's work too boot as his art is calming and pleasant looking).
Hopefully more Gou Tanabe's HP Lovecraft manga will be licensed, the first two were so good in artwork I couldn't stop reading it
