Two weeks ago, Bleeding Cool reported that Shazam! #7 by Geoff Johns and Dale Eaglesham was to be to be published on the 25th of September, making it 14 weeks late. And it still is.
Last week, we reported that retailers had been told that all orders for Shazam! #9, #10 and #11 had been cancelled. That they will be resolicited at a later date, but the earliest that could be for Shazam! #9 would be December. And no guarantees for that.
We also noted that Shazam! #8 had slipped a further two weeks to October 9th, making it twelve weeks late.
Well, today, we have got the update that it has slipped much further, another seven weeks on top of that, to November 27th, making it a total of nineteen weeks late. Rather than the incremental addition of single weeks to the scheduled, every week, this is more like pulling the plaster off in one tug.
And maybe it might suggest a Shazam #9 for Christmas week? We shall see…
Neal Adams' Batman Vs Ra's Al Ghul is also doing a little slippage, issue one ot this week was originally scheduled for the 21st of August, while issue 2 has slipped further from the 18th of September to the 2nd of October.
