‘Batman Vs. Ra’s’, ‘Inferior Five’ Delayed Indefinitely

Batman Ra's

Fans of two current DC miniseries — Batman vs. Ra’s Al Ghul and Inferior Five — got some bad news when DC canceled retailer orders for the final two issues of each.

Though the publisher indicated that  “resolicitations of these titles [are] coming soon,” both have previously been plagued by delays. Inferior Five, by Jeff Lemire and Keith Giffen, also saw its total issue number cut from twelve to six.

Here are the (canceled) solicitations for the four issues in question:

From alternating Batman & Green Lantern as childhood Halloween costumes, to getting punched in my adolescent heart by Love & Rockets, to playing convention sidekick to the legendary Len Wein, the comics medium and characters feel like a part of my DNA.
