  1. Just a couple of clarifications when it comes to Tom King’s story from the Catwoman Anniversary issue and that Birds of Prey issue. Tom Kong’s story is technically not an Earth-2 story since that Helena Wayne is the same one from his Batman Annual #2 where she was the future Batwoman or possibly called Batman like at the end of Earth 2: Society. We will see if it ties into the Batman/Catwoman series that still hasn’t been solicited after being announced early last year. I know Clay Mann is slow artist where that still seems pretty ridiculous, but I digress.

    Then that Birds of Prey issue is an epic journey where originally Brian Azarello was going to do Suicide Squad with Wally West being part of it after Heroes in Crisis. That didn’t happen so then Azarello was going to do a Birds of Prey ongoing which was announced in July of last year. It would have started in October and was then delayed to February of this year while being switched to Black Label. It was announced in December of last year that it was no longer an ongoing where it would instead be a 96-page one-shot while it kept getting delayed. I know Azarello was critical of DC with getting jerked around on multiple projects and it didn’t help with Batman: Damned with the first issue change while having the huge delay between issues 2 and 3 where it took 6 months. Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey is supposed to be 4 issues with the second issue finally coming out in a little over 2 weeks. That first issue came out in February instead of the Azarello issue. Like I said, it was an epic journey for just the one-shot to come out where I would understand why Azarello is frustrated.
