Over on (the now-owned by Platinum) Broken Frontier, Mark Thompson of Checker Books explains what they’re doing with the CrossGen trade paperbacks:
We approached Disney because it appeared they had diverse plans for the CrossGen acquisition. As luck turned out, part of their plan was to license reprints, which is our bailiwick… Our initial focus would be to get all the material which was uncollected out there. Then unpublished material, followed by reprinting trades or new collections of previously published trades.
What seems to be being said at one point is that there isn’t a plan to create new material to complete unfinished storylines:
The material is so good that fans are willing to give a pass on somewhat incomplete endings. It is also debatable between the differing types of endings… one man’s cliffhanger is another man’s “unfinished” story. Regular comic book fans are familiar with and used to ongoing storylines.
