    Wow... looks like's DC's not going to wait around for the creators on this one. Sucks for the fans though.

    Yeah, this is ever so slightly annoying, like how the Phantom Zone storyline concludes in the upcoming annual, or how Wonder Woman's current arc finishes in her annual. If it starts in the main series, I think that's where all the key issues ought to be. Sidestories or epilogues, sure, but I don't like having to buy annuals or wait ages to get the final chapter.

    Good on DC though to at least keep something coming out.
