LATE: Astro City Later, Shade The Changing Woman Earlier…

Posted by May 10, 2018 Comment

A few schedule changes from DC Comics…

The final issue in comic book singles form, Astro City #52 has slipped another month.

Originally planned for the 18th of April, it originally slipped by a month to the 16th May. Well, it has now slipped another six weeks to the 27th June. Though given #50 and #51 I am sure it will be worth waiting for.

While Shade The Changing Woman #4 has done the opposite, coming forward three weeks from the 27th of June to the 6th of June. Quite the rarity. But oh yes, it is now a six-issue mini-series rather than an ongoing…

While Wonder Woman Annual #2 has slipped a week – or a month depending how you define it – from the 30th May to the 6th June.

After her homeworld was destroyed, Shade became a refugee on Meta, where her family was deemed unfit to raise her. Then two decades later, she was taken by Madness to Earth, where she was placed in another’s body and lived out the consequences of a life she never lived. In order to deal with these traumas, Shade buried her heart. Now new and old threats pursue her and her friends, but without a heart, can Shade even pretend to care about these outward horrors – let alone the ones she herself caused? In Shops: Jun 06, 2018
