The first issue was initially due to be published this month, but was delayed to December. Subsequent issues were also rescheduled. But not any more.
Hickman has written a letter to retailers expressing that retailers concerns about delays for new titles has led to both he, and Image Comics, choosing to cancel all orders for the series and to resolicit the comic for publication in the spring with Frontier #1.
Hickman cites hurricanes in South Carolina throwing power out, as well as tighter printer schedules over the US holiday period, as delaying his revision schedule
Because I was unhappy with some of the writing and art in FRONTIER #1—and it being a first issue which always demands our best foot forward—I felt the need to push the schedule back another full week and get the book where I wanted it to be. Unfortunately pushing the issue back creates a domino effect on the production deadlines and puts #1 at a month late—and each issue afterwards would be later than planned as well.
Spring can’t come soon enough….
