We noted that Shazam! #8 had slipped a further two weeks to October 9th, making it twelve weeks late. Shazam! #9 had slipped to October 23rd, making it nine weeks late. Shazam! #10 had slipped to November 6th, making it seven weeks late. And that Shazam! #11 had slipped to November 20th. making it five weeks late.
