Black Mask Studios has cancelled the long-delayed  Godkiller: Tomorrow's Ashes OGN trilogy, as well as a collection of Curt Pires, Chris Peterson, and Alex Diotto's 2005 miniseries Mayday. The news came from Diamond Comic Distributors, while the publisher states they plan to re-solicit the titles for publication at a later, unspecified date.

"It's just us cleaning up our corner of the Diamond system. The Mayday trade was solicited in 2015 but didn't come out yet due to some issues that arose in 2015 and affected a number of titles," Black Mask's Maddy Dawson. "The Godkiller trades had a Blu-ray insert that created a conflict with U.K. shops because of government ratings laws. So the Blu-rays had to be rated by the U.K. government which wound up not happening and as a result the book fell off the schedule."

Black Mask intends to resolicit all four titles in 2018, as the publisher stabilizes its collection and OGN releases.

"Trades and graphic novellas were challenging for Black Mask in the past, but we've been having much more success with them so we're working more closely right now with Diamond Books to clean out the debris and get things rolling more efficiently," added Dawson."

Here is the original solicitation for these four titles:

Even in a future so bleak the air is unbreathable and healthy blood is used as a  currency... integrity, redemption, and loyalty still mean something. Tommy is on a quest to find the mysterious Starkiller, and Halfpipe is determined to prevent Tommy from getting himself killed. Together, they will traverse space and time, sacrificing what little they have for the ones they love. This oversized #1 is a great starting point for new readers, and, to help get new readers up to speed, it comes packaged with a Blu-ray disc of the Godkiller: Walk Among Us animated feature starring Lance Henriksen (Aliens), Danielle Harris (Halloween), and Davey Havok (singer AFI).

Being the adventures of a young woman whose principal interests are sex magick, weaponized orgasms, and organ-stealing.

At the end of the world, all we have is each other.
The shocking conclusion to the latest saga in one of the craziest comic series on shelves.

(W) Curt Pires (A) Christopher Peterson, Alex Diotto (CA) Alexis Ziritt
A washed-up, drug-addicted screenwriter and a transgender bartender stumble onto a Satanic cult's plan to sacrifice people all across LA (geomapped in the form of a pentagram, of course) and bring on armageddon. As our intrepid, damaged heroes embark on a suicide mission to stop the crazy cultists, even they wonder if this is all really happening or if they're just plain batshit crazy. Probably both. Collecting the lunacy that is Mayday #1-4 by brilliant sociopath Curt Pires and brash artists Chris Peterson and Alex Diotto.
