[] Has Marvel's Rogue One comic series' been cancelled?

ComicBook.com are reporting that Marvel's planned two Rogue One comic arcs, a 3-issue mini-series plus a one-shot, have been cancelled following the removal from Amazon's catalogue of the collected graphic novel - scheduled for a November release. Online publishers catalogue edelweiss has also updated their own listings page with a "Cancelled" notice for the collected volume.
What is unclear, as Marvel have yet to make an official comment, is whether the comic book issues themselves have been cancelled. When first announced at this year's C2E2 Marvel released very few details about these stories: they didn't announce an author or artist for either story and no plot details other than both were prequel stories to Rogue One.
Needless to say speculation grows with perhaps BleedingCool.com offering the best reason - Lucasfilm have refused to sign-off on allowing these stories to be published before the theatrical release of Rogue One in December and, following the disappointment with their last Star Wars one-shot, C-3PO (it too delayed several times due to sign-off issues), Marvel do not want to release another comic story that might encounter similar delays.
Whatever the reason, we await official word from Marvel.

[] Bloodline
Hardback Novel, e-Book and unabridged Audio Book by Claudia Gray
Century ( [UK] )

This story occurs approximately 28 years after Episode IV: A New Hope:
With the Endor fireworks a distant memory, Leia Organa has put up with decades of partisan squabbling as a member of the New Republic Senate. Leia finds herself grappling with dangers from within and without, each with the power to cripple the fledgling democracy and dash every hope for a prosperous future.
To make things worse, the Senate has begun to call for the election of a First Senator: an influential and charismatic figure to bring order to the divided government. As the daughter of Darth Vader, Leia knows all too well the price to be paid if the New Republic hands power to a single individual.
Unfortunately, a new enemy represents a threat on such a scale that New Republic may be left with no other choice.
As Leia contemplates starting a second Rebellion, evil takes root at the edges of the galaxy. The First Order is growing, and it will not stay silent

[Bloodline] [] Bloodline
By Claudia Gray
Reviewed by Ewan, Star Wars Books & Comics

a worthy contribution to the galaxy far, far away [...] from the outside Gray creates a story that appears to be one of galactic politics it is actually one of familial relationships and the comparisons between the family that nurtured you and the natural family that created you [...] Gray successfully recreates the Leia we are familiar with in the films: intelligent, strong, driven, even feisty when the occasion calls for it [...] perhaps the story to awaken the wider Star Wars fandom to the importance of the novels in newly aligned program of canonical Star Wars storytelling....read full review
