The finale to Brian Michael Bendis and David Mack's Cover is expanding in size - but that means it's going to take a few more weeks than expected to finish the issue. The creator-owned Cover #6 has been pushed back from a February 20 release date to March 13.

"David and I are so deeply grateful to the readers and retailers who have spread the word about Cover," says Bendis. "We came up with some extra fun ideas for the last issue and we thought the added pages were also the best way to say thank you.

The issue will now have 29 pages of story - although DC nor the creators disclosed how many the issue originally intended to include. The publisher does stress that the price of the issue will not be changed despite the additional page count.

With this, DC does announce that a sequel to the six-issue Cover series is planned for 2020.
