‘Shazam!’, ‘Doomsday Clock’ Hit With New Delays

Shazam! #7 delayed

DC’s two Geoff Johns-penned titles — Shazam! and Doomsday Clock — have been hit with new delays.

Last month, DC pushed Shazam! #7 from its original June solicitation date back to August 7. Now it’s being moved again, to August 14, which in turn ripples out to affect the next three issues as well. If everything stays on schedule from here out, Shazam! #8 will be out August 28, #9 September 11, and #10 September 25.

No, that’s not a typo — DC has the Geoff Johns/Dale Eaglesham series scheduled for a bi-weekly release as of #7.

The first collected edition remains on the schedule for October.

From alternating Batman & Green Lantern as childhood Halloween costumes, to getting punched in my adolescent heart by Love & Rockets, to playing convention sidekick to the legendary Len Wein, the comics medium and characters feel like a part of my DNA.
