Now Wildstorm Delays Their 25th Anniversary Hardcover For Two Months

It was two months ago that Bleeding Cool told you that Wildstorm was delaying their 25th Anniversary Hardcover by a month, from August to September. And what a tribute to Wildstorm's famously delayed comic books that was.

Well, it seems that you can never give too much of a tribute. Because the hardcover has now slipped one further month and is now scheduled for release on the 25th October.

If it's delayed another two months, it might end up being the 26th Anniversary Hardcover. After all, the Batman: Secrets – Sam Keith Gallery Edition has been delayed from August to the end of December…
