LATE: Shazam #1 Slips Into December – Will Christmas Issue Come Out in 2019?

When the latest January 2019 solicitations were released, there was one question on many people’s lips.

An absence of Shazam #3 by Geoff Johns and Dale Eaglesham.

But though many people asked the question…

… no one was answering.

That’s where Bleeding Cool comes in. Because we can tell you that Shazam #1, scheduled for the 21st November 2018, is slipping a couple of weeks to the 5th of December.

Now issue 2 is still scheduled for December 19th, but we all know that won’t happen. It will be pushed into January 2019. Shame, as it has a Christmas-themed cover…

And that is why no Shazam #3 was solicited for January, there will be a Shazam #2 in that month and DC Comics is trying to wriggle the schedule around to accommodate the late series. So look for #3 to pop up in February – a month after #2…
