Surely it doesn't take seven months to publish a comic? If the creators show no commitment to their product, I'm damned if I will. The unprofessional comment on the last page of this issue just sums up their attitude. Dropped.

The first two issues were so great, but the decline has set in big time. We now have a ludicrous story which is more interested in attacking the white male than in the formerly interesting characters. Have we had a single positive white male in this tale? DC just cannot stay away from its divisive political agenda and identity politics. Dropped.
