DC Comics announces with its media partner IGN the news that the eight issue mini-series Dark Knight III: The Master Race by Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello will now be nine issues, the creators requesting another chapter “to tell their story right.”
IGN states that “DK3 was originally scheduled to end in March 2017 with issue #8, but now DC is promoting a Spring 2017 release for issue #9” – which is the first feint. In actuality, it was intended originally to conclude in July 2016.
They also state that the next chapter to be released will be issue #6 on October 19.
But they choose not to mention that the solicitations for Dark Knight III: The Master Race #7, solicited for October, then delayed until for December, have all been cancelled by the publisher. And will be resolicited later for 2017.
But everyone’s looking too busy looking at the new shiny issue 9 to notice…
