- Schedule Slip: The first issue was resolicited to begin in February, when it was supposed to begin months before. This is because the entire Dark Matter line was subject to this at one point, with even the series intended to launch it changing around quite a bit.

Lemire said that she "wasn't the Legion's Phantom Girl" which only fueled speculation that he was using Exact Words... issue 1 reveals that he was being fairly direct... at least for now.
