Today sees the final issue of Collin Kelly, Jackson Lanzing, and Carlos Magno's Kang The Conqueror mini-series, which sees time come full circle and the hideous history of Kang and Ravonna laid out across the timestream. It also sets up Jed McKay's big new thing for next week, Timeless #1. Of course, back then, Kang The Conqueror #5 was scheduled for the 9th of December and Timeless #1 for today. But pandemic, printing, distribution, and creative issues have meant that Kang #5 comes out today and Timeless #1 next week. Though the ad in the back of Kang #5 seems to have forgotten the time delay.
Which is either ironic or apt, depending on your perspective. Though for Brits it will be another week, as all comic books destiny for comic shops for the 29th of December will slip to the 5th of January 2022. You may want to take some time off the internet during that week gap, as otherwise I expect it would take a miracle to avoid spoilers…
