LATE: Extraordinary X-Men #1 Will Now Launch In November, Not October (UPDATE)

extraordinary_x-men_1_coverExtraordinary X-Men #1 by Jeff Lemire and Humberto Ramos was to have been published on the 14th October. But it won't be. Instead it will be published three weeks later on the 4th November. Which means issue 2 which was due to be published two week after that, on the 28th October will now appear on the 18th November. That would have been when #3 would have been published, that has now been pushed forward a week to 25th November, but I wouldn't bet on it. Especially with #4 scheduled only two weeks after that on 9th December

All-New X-Men #1 which would have also come out on the 4th November will now be published on the 11th.

Will we really get three issues of Extraordinary in November? Or will there be further lateness to come?

Also, aside from Old Man Logan or Deadpool Vs Thanos, there will be no X-Men series published by Marvel in October.

In fact, if What If Infinity: Avengers had not been renamed to What If Infinity: X-Men, October would have been the first month that there hadn't been a book with an "X" in the title published by Marvel since Uncanny X-Men was bi-monthly back in the late seventies…

It's not just Secret Wars.

UPDATE: A reliable Marvel source gets in touch to reassure readers that this lateness is not down to creators Lemire and Ramos, who are well ahead on the title, emphasising that Ramos is a regular monthly artist, and that the title was pushed back for other reasons.
