As I was picking up my weekly fix from London’s Orbital Comics this morning, I heard a couple of people asking for Shazam to be dropped off their pull lists. The series by Geoff Johns and Dale Eaglesham timed to come out alongside the movie, has been rather erratic, and Bleeding Cool has reported each and every delay. And the delays seem to be the issue, some people are just tired of waiting and are pulling the plaster off right now.
Well, this won’t help. Two weeks ago, we reported that Shazam #7 was to be to be published on the 4th of September rather than its original intended date of the 19th of June. Now it is to be rescheduled to the 19th of September, making it 13 weeks late.
Shazam #8 is scheduled to be published a week later on the 26th September. I can’t see that happening, nor Shazam #9 being published two weeks after that on the 9th of October, not #10 on October 23rd two weeks later, nor Shazam #11 another two weeks later, on the 6th November. Maybe they’ll all change in a week’s time as well. As usual.
Can someone with the wisdom of Solomon please work out what’s going on?
Oh and the newly reprinted editions of Superman #14 and Supergirl #33 have been scheduled, for the 28th of August and the 4th of September, respectively… whatever the reason.
