Empyre: A Complete New Checklist And Schedule from Marvel Comics

Marvel Comics has reissued the following checklist and timeline for the Empyre crossover event. But, even rescheduled, it is starting to slip a little. For example, the Empyre Handbook, listed as a Prelude before Empyre #1 in July, is actually now out on August 5th, the same day as Empyre #4. And Immortal She-Hulk is in September, but now pushed a little later into the month, for September 23rd. Still, it's not a bad little list and should be useful. It also kicks a number of announced Empyre crossovers and mini-series into the long grass. This is a complete checklist, don't expect a return of Empyre: Spider-Man or anything else.

Empyre is a crossover event written by Al Ewing and Dan Slott that sees the Kree and Skrull empires uniting for the first time and sending an Armada to Earth, to deal with the Cotati race living on the moon, and was set up in the previous Incoming one-shot from Christmas. Ut has been heavily delayed by the shutdown and curtailed in size as a result – and a saving of about $80 too.
