LATE: The X+2 Weeks Lives And Deaths Of Wolverine, And Other Marvels

Claws for concern, Wolverine? There's a lot of lateness in the comic book industry right now, thanks to paper shortage, printer schedules, distribution and shipping issues and basically, too much demand, not enough supply, as well as added demands on editorial and creative in the new normal. Whatever the reason, a lot of comic books are slipping down that schedule. We'd already mentioned a month delay to Sabretooth #1 but it seems everything scheduled for the 5th of January by Marvel is delayed, and more. Here are some more data points to add to the latest numbers.
