Waiting for that final issue of Secret Wars just seems to be just out of reach. CBR is reporting that the series, which was already delayed from December 23rd to January 6th, has now been delayed again another week.
Secret Wars #9 is now being pushed to January 13th. It still a bit weird on how the universe will wrap itself up given that new series, which were based in the eight months after Secret Wars, will line up with all the new series.
“The story got bigger, the revelations more shocking, the scale of the action grander than any of us anticipated,” Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso said of the original delay in last week’s edition of CBR’s AXEL-IN-CHARGE column. “Once you’ve read the event’s truly cataclysmic conclusion — and Esad’s artwork is beyond anything you’ve seen so far — you’ll see for yourself, and you’ll understand why Jonathan [Hickman] and Esad needed the extra time and space, and why we gave it to them. It has all been building to this.”
The original series, which was planned to be eight issues, has grown to nine and the delay for that final issue keeps growing. I guess we will have to see how things turn out between Doom, Mr. Fantastic and Sue. Well, we all have something to look forward to in 2016.
