The new comic release list for March 7 2007 from ComicList, compiled by MangaCast.

According to AoD, Dark Horse has confirmed that the release dates of Octopus Girl and Museum of Terror have been postponed indefinitely.

According to AoD, several Media Blasters manga, including Apocalypse Zero and Baron Gong, will most likely be discontinued:

From the look of it, Apocalypse Zero, Baron Gong Battle, Pilgrim Jager and Kamunagara all appear to be dead titles with no new movement forward on new volumes. Eiken, which is selling well and getting reprints, is in limbo with no new volumes acquired. Their yaoi titles appear to be where the movement will be going forward but they also indicate to expect news on other non-yaoi titles as well.
