Amethyst #6 has been resolicited for FOC tonight. DC Comics, via UCS, Lunar and Diamond UK has told comic book stores that all previous ordered have been cancelled and that "you will have to re-enter your order for this item. We apologize for any inconvenience." The comic is now scheduled for Tuesday, the 15th of December, instead of the originally planned release date of August.
Also the planned release date of the collection of the 6-issue series has slipped from January to March. Back in September, when asked about the delays, Amy Reeder posted a personal apology but also that she was working to make it a really good finale.
Sorry about that…I'm hard a work to make it killer! Thanks for reading.

And yesterday, she did confirm that the comic book has been finished – at least, from her end. DC Comics? The ball is in your court,
I didn't realize it got pushed another week..maybe I'm counting wrong because of Thanksgiving. The good news is, it's all done as of this week!!

Retailers may really want to check their numbers and not forget about this one, in the knowledge that a number of retailers will. For those wanting the full run it is possible this final issue will be harder to come by.
