LATE: Batman: The Last Knight On Earth #3 Slips a Month, to December 18th

The third and final chapter of Batman: The Last Knight On Earth by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo was intended to have been published on November 11th. As you might have gathered that is no longer the case. It is possible that Spawn #300 and #301 may have got in the way a little, I don’t know.

Anyway, this Black Label future-set title featuring a Batclone making his way across America – and that may reflect both Snyder’s current Justice League storyline with Lex Luthor and his upcoming Undiscovered Country series for Image Comics – looks like it has slipped by about a month.

And will now be published on the 18th of December. Alongside the likes of Batman #85, Doomsday Clock #12, Hell Arisen #1, Batman/Superman #5, Suicide Squad #1, Flash Forward #4, Justice League #38. Going to be a very busy pre-Christmas week for DC Comics, I’m thinking.

Similarly, Batman Vs Ra’s Al Ghul by Neal Adams, a series which has also suffered from slippage, will see its third issue slip from the planned 16th of October to the 20th of November, and its fourth issue from the 20th of November to the 4th of December…

Here are the new solicits to back this up.
