‘Shazam!’ #7 Delayed Again, Along With #8-11

Shazam! #7 delay

You might have noticed there were no copies of Shazam! #7 on sale this past week, despite the book being rescheduled for an August 7 release (bumped from its original June date). In fact, don’t look for it before September 11 — a full 13 weeks after it was supposed to be on shelves.

DC has also announced a delay for issues #8 through #11; the new dates — as of this writing — are September 25, October 9, October 23, and November 6.

Shazam! #7 delay

This certainly isn’t a new development for either of DC’s Geoff Johns-penned titles. There’s also news that another Johns-driven project, DC Universe’s Stargirl show, has been pushed back from 2019 to 2020.

Get your bets in now on whether the next issue of Doomsday or Shazam! will hit shelves first. Once again, here are the solicitations for #7 and #8:

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.
