Dark Horse Cancels Orders For "Spell On Wheels 2", Switches Witches to OGNs

Dark Horse Comics had solicited a new five-part Spell On Wheels series to launch for Hallowe'en, Spell On Wheels 2: Just To Get To You from series creators Kate Leth, Megan Levens, Marissa Louise, with new letterer Rachel Deering,

The first issue was meant to come out next week. However, the publisher has just informed retailers that the three solicitations currently published for issues going up to December, are to be cancelled.

Bleeding Cool contacted creators and publishers for comment, without response. But a couple of weeks ago, Leth posted that the series would be going original graphic novel only.

The first Spell On Wheels series from 2017 told the story Andy, Claire and Jolene, three witches on a roadtrip in search of the thief who had stolen all their magical items. The second series – now original graphic novel – will see them in search of the one responsible for Claire becoming possessed.

Here are the currently cancelled solicitations, to give a flavour.
