Keanu Reeves' BRZRKR #1 Yet Another Delay (UPDATE)

UPDATE: Diamond Comics has sent a corrective message. The delay to BRZRKR #1, which Diamond said would affect all covers, they have corrected saying it's just the foil cover that will be a month late. The other issues will just be one weeks lat.

Due to an error on Diamond's part, it was erroneously reported that the in-store date for all editions of BOOM! Entertainment's BRZRKR #1 had changed. In fact, the in-store date for the foil editions only of BRZRKR #1 has changed to March 24. Additionally, the other editions of the issue — originally solicited to arrive in stores on February 24 — will now arrive on March 3.

The original article runs below:

Originally Keanu Reeves' BRZRKR comic from Boom Studios was meant to come out in October 2020. Then, for undisclosed reasons, the artist Alessandro Vitti was replaced by Ron Garney, and the comic had to be started again, so it was delayed to the 24th of February 2021. And now it seems it is being delayed for a further month. Well, they do have two-thirds of a million copies to print.

Boom Studios has told retailers that "due to high demand, and to ensure that the printer is able to maintain Boom's high level of quality, the on-sale date for all editions of BRZRKR #1 including foil variants, has changed to March 24."

You'll get it eventually. Honest. Bleeding Cool has confirmed the first issue of the comic book is at least completed. It's just that I got to read it even further ahead than everyone else, now. Sorry.
