For many fans of superstar writer Jonathan Hickman, Hickman’s upcoming House of X and Powers of X are the answer to long-awaited hopes that Hickman would take on a major X-Men project at Marvel. But for fans of Hickman and Tomm Coker’s Black Monday murders, the outlook is a bit poorer.

Here’s what the Image Comics’ website listing for Black Monday Murders #9, originally set to ship on April 24th, looked like as of March 27th, when Google last cached it:

Surely more disappointing for those who followed the series thus far, issue #9 was set to be the start of the book’s final story arc, featuring double-sized issues. But closure, it appears, will have to wait. Hopefully HiX-Men will end up being more complete, since it will change the X-Men universe forever, and you can’t go around leaving an X-Men universe half-changed.

As of now, there’s no notes on Diamond about the book’s future. And you won’t find Black Monday Murders #10 on there anymore either. Will they be resolicited? We reached out to Image for comment, and if they respond, we’ll let you know. But it doesn’t look like it will be here on April 24th, in any case.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
