    Here's the EQD post.

    I'm extremely disappointed by this news, though after such a long wait since its original publication date (Oct 2015) I can't say I'm entirely surprised. The first Art Gallery comic was really nice, with a good amount of artwork that had never been seen anywhere else, and I was looking forward to seeing more. It's particularly hard hit since this was actually advertised as coming out imminently in a couple of print comics last autumn. Admittedly Art is Magic ended up coming out instead, which was welcome in itself, but it's a shame we couldn't have both. :(

    Has there been any word as to why it was cancelled? I'm wondering whether the first one didn't sell very well but I haven't heard that was the case. It's a real shame; I would definitely have bought it.

    If there has, I haven't seen it. So I have no clue whether it was a simple commercial decision or something else, eg problems with the rights to some of the pictures. From memory, I don't think the first one sold amazingly well, but it didn't sell terribly either. I doubt they'd have announced the second one at all if the first one had done that badly.
