New Shipping Dates

No, I'm not happy about it either...

The ComicList is reporting that Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis #45 is now due out on November 1st, and Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis #46 is due out on November 22nd. Because the ComicList hasn't been wrong yet, I'll be updating the release dates in the events calendar and sidebar.

Pure speculation: This change will probably push back #47 to mid-December, but if they don't push back #48 as well, we'll get a nice treat of bi-weekly Aquaman in December. The delay is also likely to push back the publication of the trade, but I could be wrong about that as well.

For folks coming in late, the delay is due to Butch Guice not being able to keep up the superhuman pace that DC editorial expected of him. When Kurt and Butch took over the book it had already been cancelled, and they started two months behind. They asked for a relaunch, but DC didn't want to do it, so they attempted to keep up with it. Kurt was able to write the stories, but Butch hasn't been able to keep the pace on the art (although he managed it for a few months), and the book has been delayed because of it. Starting with issue #46, there is a guest artist, and the book should return to schedule. We hope.
