    Good lord. It's going to take them 3 years to give us a 6 issue mini series, isn't it?

    And here I thought Williams would have more time on his hands after the Batwoman debacle...

    Fairly certain this is on Gaiman. I seem to remember an interview with JH3 where the first issue was just about to come out and he said he was waiting on the script for issue 2.

    As a mini, shouldn't some of the issues have been in the can already. Especially with Williams being a "slow" artist.

    Really?! That's surprising. I'd have thought Gaiman would've had most (if not all) of the script finished by now, considering how long it's been since the initial announcement.

    No matter who was at fault, Gaiman or Williams. People still will blame DC editorial for that.

    Nah, Vertigo editorial is absolutely competent compared to their DCnU counterparts.

    I had already decided to hold off on reading them until they're all released, figured it'd be the best way to read this particular series. Shame about the delays but at least I'll have something decent to read Summer 2015.

    I blame the publisher...DiDio and Lee for rushing this series. If anything has EVER followed Williams get is solid on deadlines. This was just a rush to capitalize on the year end market share.
    Who's there?

    At least they told us rather than just ship when they can be bothered like Dynamite or IDW

    I've dropped this until the HC is released... in 2016.

    Lol, it's not really much of a case. Bosses are ultimately responsible for the product that goes out. If they prematurely solicit a book when they didn't even have a certain amount of issues in the can from a couple slow creators, the fault is obviously theirs if the product doesn't come out on time.
