John Layman and Nick Pitarra’s Leviathan Delayed Till… Later

Leviathan, the comic book series by John Layman and Nick Pitarra, published last year from Image Comics, appears to have hit the schedule skids somewhat.

Leviathan #3 was a month late, out in October 2018. But there hasn’t been hide nor scale since.

Well, Image Comics has made it official, with the final two issues, #4 and #5  now having their retailer orders cancelled. But Image promises they will be resolicited and published at a later date. Whether that will be before or after DC Comics publishes its own Leviathan series by Brian Bendis and Alex Maleev, we don’t know.

Yeah, that’s going to be a fun one. Layman tweets out,

But which is worse: the mech, or the monster? Meanwhile, Ryan’s girlfriend Vivian has just woken up from her coma. Which should be good news, right? But no: it’s very, VERY bad.

END OF STORY ARC

“‘TIL DEATH DO US PART,” Conclusion
