Yeah, it really does sound weird on alotta levels, to make that statement.

First off, How is this "fan-pitched", when the stuff that is passing for "continuity" (i.e., the bios) sounds very pedestrian?? I'm surprised that they didn't consult with Val, Emiliano, etc. to begin with... What, they were good enough to create the comics, but not to continue the legacy of MOTU, like they were doing the whole time?

Secondly, the story of MOTU is kinda "complicated" to begin with. Randor and Keldor are brothers, but they look like day and night to each other....? That's not complicated??? And these new bios aren't really doing anything to un-complicate things either.
