    Oh. LOL.

    And, despite my constant checkings of ew.com, sadly, no announcement as of yet.

    I bet Randy's struck a deal with EW.

    "You cover all our new releases on the front of your site, and I'll start random baseless rumors so your visitor tally goes through the roof."
    "Will that work?"
    "These are Star Wars fans we're talking about here."

    if this is the same announcement he teased for mid January then I do not get any hopes up for hearing it before 2015

    Maybe it will hit, then, at the same time as the Paul S. Kemp Duology reveal

    Maybe Dark Horse is ready to stick it to Marvel by revealing their own crossovers: Boba Fett vs Conan the Barbarian.

    Dark Empire: Empire's End II: Palpatine's Revenge. Palpatine does all the same stuff over again for the fourth pointless time in a row!

    As a fan of both DH's Conan and Star Wars lines, I really hope that does not happen. :p

    Dark Horse panel is in 4 hours. If EW wants to get the scoop on this, they'll have to put something up soon.

    Or it could be delayed again... [face_devil]

    Has Del Ray been at Wondercon?

    What about anyone TCW related?

    Any relevant post disney news on the state of the franchise? This whole thing's been a mess lately.

    Almost two hours. I'll go to sleep before that. That means I will read it in the April Fool's Day.

    ...if there is an announcement. I can see it going like this:
    Randy: "We will now tell more about the announcement. As you read from Entertainment Weekly-"
    Someone: "It's not online yet"
    Randy: ""#¤%&&. So we can't tell anything now. Go to your homes."

    Unless the whole point is that it's an AFD prank. Playing the long game like that isn't unheard of :p

    Doesn't seem like we have anyone at the panel, but it looks like the DH forums have at least one. We'll see what coalesces.

    Ugh...... I'm thinking the announcement will come midweek next week, as still nothing on EW. And, I can't find any sites doing a liveblog from the SW Panel. :/

    It's supposed to last from 4 to 5 (CST). However, most panels at WonderCon end before the 1 hour time ends.
