More On Secret Wars Lateness

Posted by June 8, 2015 Comment

Secret_Wars_Battle_Standees_Detail (1)We ran a piece a week ago pointing out the lateness of the Secret Wars series after issue 3, and how it was taking a number of series with it. Well, below you can see the current list of lateness, the title, the delay and the current release date.

One issue is that as books slip from July to August and fewer slip from June to July, is that Marvel’s marketshare in July will take a dip, though the popularity of the other books should counter that to some extent. Though comic store cashflow may be a little problematic for some stores who made specific plans…

Secret Wars #4 two weeks late to 1st July

Secret Wars #5 six weeks late to 13th August

Secret Wars #6 three weeks late to 2nd September

Not even the promo items (above) are immune.
