    As much as I'm enjoying the look into the debate of Ivy's humanity, I'm bummed about the return to what's arguably Burchett's sloppiest work. I wish they had stuck with Vecchio moving forward, as now his portion will just seem wildly out of place once the physical release happens.

    I know the interview with Templeton hinted at this being a month after husband run on BAtman Adventures vol. 2, but the way they're going it seems like odd placement. This'll be a fun one to try to nail down in the overall continuity.

    Oh, when was this moved to the Comic section from the Animation section? Weird. EDIT: Moved it back to the Animation section from the Comic section.

    Anyway, yeah, the artwork also bummed me out. So I guess this arc is pretty much Harley destroying her relationships to set up for the movie. Here we saw Floronic Man continuing to tempt Ivy, for example.

    I've been waiting for this all day, but ComiXology still has it listed "coming soon" they've been dropping it later and later in the day each time and I'm getting annoyed. #firstworldproblems

    They pushed it back a week to October 16 after the fact. Terrible.

    10/11: Yikes. This run has been plagued with problems. Whether it's Burchett's rough art, whatever happened to bring Vehicco in for one issue, delayed issues, and now the last issue being pushed back the day of? This is embarrassing on DC's part.

    10/15: Issue 5 is now delayed until October 23rd. Makes me think the sequel won't be starting in October like initially planned. Especially since we haven't had any update on it. Not a big deal. I have most of it in the form of "Last Call" already.

    I wouldn't be so upset about the delays if we got a decent improvement in quality as a result, but the fact that they've already switched back from Vehicco to Burchett leads me to think that won't be the case on this issue.

    It's disappointing that the last issue is delayed again. This series has ultimately been a letdown. It should have been a return to form for the great creative team but it seems like it's hit road block after road block. I hope the trade collection will feature finished and corrected artwork. DC has been known to fix artwork in collections so I hope this will be the case here.

    With how much it's been getting delayed I forgot it was even supposed to come today.

    Sigh.....

    You guessed it, #5 has been delayed another week to November 13.

    11/4:I honestly can't imagine why this keeps getting moved back. These are mini comics, it realistically shouldn't take this long...

    11/10: Issue 5 is now being pushed to Nov 20th. I was talking to Ty last night to get some insight on continuity for a Watchtower Database video, and now I'm wishing I asked about the delays. Didn't think to since I figured after a month + we were finally getting it. I guess not though.

    issue 5 moved to December 11. Guess they're waiting until the other mini is concluded.

    Just had a brief conversation with Ty and I didn't get much info.

    "Don't know the details, and they wouldn't be mine to reveal regardless. I finished all my scripting for this stuff many moons ago, and as far as I know the art's all done for both stories."

    I had asked if it's delay would cause any confusion with the Task force Ex story in the sequel and he skipped the question.

    I wouldn't think so. I would think it would cause more confusion being released out of order. H&B #5 is before the movie and B&H #6 and 7 are x days after the movie.

    So all the issues that were in that collection with the movie release you mentioned have all been released now digitally?

    Almost all of them are out now. Instead of the Floronic Man story though they had put in Monday's issue "The Good Doctor"
