    I think Johns just has a lot on his plate. He's still involved in the tv and streaming side of things, right? And.....maybe still the movies? Or did he leave those completely?

    Those are all things that certainly take priority over comics. A lot more money involved and you can't fudge the deadlines as easily.

    I feel like if something had happened to him in his personal life, like a death in the family or a illness, someone would've made a statement about it.

    Yeah, I know he's put a lot of work into stargirl, looking at his website, I didn't even realize he was working on Batwoman with his new company. And there is still the green lantern script he is workin on(though I feel like we should have gotten some news by now if WB liked the script...)

    And hopefully you are right, I'm not trying to wish bad ill on the man or his family, just very confused about these delays.

    Maybe it was Johns being forced to keep up to date with what was going on in the DCU currently? DDC takes place one year ahead after all, and he’s been referencing stuff like Heroes in Crisis. Still at some point they really should’ve just said enough was enough and made sure the book came out.

    Slipping to essentially a quarterly book seems like something that would warrant a statement. If not to fans, but to retailers who are ordering this book and seeing it pushed back further and further.

    Johns is heavily involved with the DC universe shows, and Shazam is seeing delays too. So I'm not convinced it's editorial meddling that is the issue. Plus, by doing this they are letting him complete the series with a single artist. I think they are actually respecting his vision of it by letting it drag out if that makes sense. If this was your standard event it would have had fillins by now to wrap it up.

    While I've avoided buying / reading the series, I am still waiting to see if / when / how it may (or may not) resolve what (if anything) happened with the Justice Society of America.

    And right now, there's a very good chance my patience may end before this series.

    Unless this series resolves all the continuity hang ups between New 52 and Rebirth, I really don't see the point in doing it. There has to be some sort of big payoff here other than Johns just wanting to play with the Watchmen characters. All this looks like it's just an attempt to officially go back to the pre-Flashpoint universe the long way.
    Now listen to me, Clark! This great strength of yours--you've got to hide it from people or they'll be scared of you!

    It might explain why there are continuity hangups, but it won't resolve them. Doomsday Clock is no longer the capstone story, and Rebirth has been abandoned creatively.

    You want continuity resolutions, you have to wait until Scott Snyder reboots the multiverse next year and just handwaves everything away.

    Lord does there not need to be any sort of payoff other than that. I don't doubt there'll be *ramifications* and whatnot playing out of it, but that's not remotely the point; the point is the hope that when it comes out in trade, people who buy 5 comics lifelong at Borders will see there's a Watchmen sequel with DC characters in it that was - at least on the surface - treated seriously and go for 6.
    You can follow me on Twitter or Tumblr, if more of my opinions sounds like something you'd like.

    It'll be a relief to finally enter a post-Doomsday Clock status quo eventually, where nothing is but mere prologue anymore, and where there's more creative liberty.

    Wait.

    Who said anything about "more creative liberty" being guaranteed post-Doomsday Cluck?

    By that I generally mean they don't have to constantly put everything back in the box before we catch up to something set a year in advance

    And, yay, it's out next week!

    But, is that a flashback to something or maybe even just a page in a comic book that some snot-nosed kid is reading?
