DC Cancels Superman/Batman Vol.7, Will Resolicit in 61 Years

DC Comics has canceled another collection, this time the trade paperback for Batman/Superman Vol. 7, which was originally meant to hit stores two weeks ago, on February 20th. A Bleeding Cool reader contacted us asking if we could find out what happened to the book, and we were able to discern that though the book was solicited in the November Diamond Previews catalog, its entry no longer exists, and it has in fact been canceled according to Diamond.

That would normally seem like a simple matter, but it was a little bit confusing because DC's website lists the book as "available now" without a change to its February 20th release date, linking to Barnes and Noble and Amazon for readers to purchase a comic that doesn't exist.

However, in a shocking twist which is sure to get the collective knickers of the internet in a bunch and prompt a DC Comics executive to yell at us on Twitter, Bleeding Cool can EX-X-XCLUSIVELY confirm that the book will apparently be resolicited for release on January 2, 2080, or at least, that's what the Amazon page currently says:

Oh look, there's a link to report incorrect product information. We'll take care of this.

There we go. Problem solved.

Anyway, if you were waiting for Superman/Batman Vol. 7, it looks like you're out of luck, at least for the next half-century or so. Maybe DC will release a hardcover.

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.
