Bug: The Adventures Of Forager #5 And #6, And Green Arrow Annual #1 Cancelled… For Now

Young Animal line from DC Comics has had its fair share of battles with scheduling, with solicits for Doom Patrol cancelled earlier in the year, then resolicited at a later date. And Bug! The Adventures Of Forager has been getting later and later, slipping down the schedules too.

Which is why DC Comics has decided to cancel all orders for the final two issues of Bug! The Adventures Of Forager by Lee Allred and Mike Allred, overseen by Gerard Way, until they can get their act together. The cancellation means that you won't see #5 now, however, until at least November. We will get a better idea in a couple of weeks time.

Less predictably, Green Arrow Annual #1 has also suffered the same fate. By Ben Percy and Eleonora Carlini, someone may have noticed that it is a Christmas special that was scheduled to come out in August. Maybe someone has had a think about that and cancelled it to be resolicited for a slightly more festive time.

But it does mean that the November-scheduled trade paperback Green Arrow Vol 4: Blood And Oil which would have contained this annual has also had to have its orders cancelled and will be resolicited at a later date.

Here's a look what was planned – and still may well be again!
