    I'm not holding my breath, but personally I'd put better odds on the Arkham sequel happening than Bat/Cat simply because Morrison and Burnham are thought of more positively and sell better than King

    In March Burnham flat out said it wasn't happening, change from last year where he was saying it was just shelved and not cancelled.

    And Morrison has since said(as recent as August) that he'd like to get to it "eventually" as he really likes what little he had written. Like I said, while I'm certainly not holding my breath for it to come out I'd put better odds on that book eventually seeing the light of day than a lot of other shelved projects including Bat/Cat.

    I thought it was just that one special issue that's on hold, not the entire series.

    Man, it seems like it happens 90% of the time. I hope they improve with delivery times in the future...

    Yeah, it's the special that I doubt will see the light of day. I could be wrong, Europa came out after what? Ten years? So it could happen, but generally when something gets put on hold "indefinitely" it's just a nice way of saying it's dead.

    I don't know if someone's already mentioned this, but is Liam Sharp the new regular artist?

    He's supposed to be on two issues, giving Mann a chance to catch up. We already got the first one. After the next one Mann should be back. Who knows though--Mann had a year to get the whole series done and he couldn't do it.

    I sincerely doubt that the special would be canceled when it's the last thing Leon drew. Someone said above that it would be disrespectful to use other artists to complete it; it would be much, much more disrespectful for DC to cancel his final pages. From what's been said the idea is to choose other artists that loved or would pay tribute to Leon by finishing it. That makes a heck of a lot more sense to me.

    As to when it might come out, who knows. But I think it's much more likely to come out than anything that's been indefinitely delayed by a living artist.

    Ha! January solicits just leaked. The Bat/Cat Special is solicited for 1/25 with art by Leon, Tommy Lee Edwards, Bernard Chang, Mitch Gerads, and others.

    So much for the comparisons to All-Star Batman and Arkham Asylum 2.

    Just because it's been solicited again doesn't mean it won't get delayed again.

    But even if it gets another delay, I do agree it does seem that it will get published eventually.

    Dang it, I really dislike multiple artists on a book. At this point, I'd like them to just give it to Gerads to finish. Rock solid artist who fits the style.

    I can only guess it's something behind the scenes with Mann (hopefully nothing awful) as it's crazy he is this slow on just 12 (and counting down) issues with all that head start and the pandemic halting/delaying comics for months last year.
    Just. Be. Nice.

    Sharp is doing three issues actually, he said he'd be doing 7-9 back in July: https://twitter.com/liamrsharp/statu...269800960?s=21
