Amethyst #6 Finale Delayed By DC Comics Until The End Of November

A couple of weeks ago, one person complained on Twitter that the fifth issue of the DC Comics title Amethyst, written and drawn by Amy Reeder was published at the beginning of August, but that the final sixth would be published in the last week of October. Creator Amy Reeder posted a personal  apology but also that she was working to make it a really good finale..

Another tweet may be in order, as the finale of the series, already resolicited after the global shutdown, has now been delayed further, scheduled for release on the 24th of November. All I can say is that, given DC Comics propensity to cut series short, often those with a sizeable audience and fanbase, that fans should be glad that this final issue is at least still on the books. No sign of it (yet) being collected in trade paperbacks or hardcovers for 2021. We also notice that printed copies are beginning to become hard to come by for those who are looking… maybe check your store has a copy put aside for you?
