Civil War Update

Here are some updates, fresh off of the press. Well, maybe not the press, but hot out of our weekly Marvel Mailer...

The main title, Civil War #4 is delayed until 9/20/06 (which, in my opinion, is an unacceptable delay). Of course they're blaming Millar and his Chrone's Disease for the delay. It's a lot to take in, but here are the Civil War related portions of the email:


CIVIL WAR REVISED SCHEDULE AND CHECKLIST
RETAILERS: CIVIL WAR SHIPPING UPDATES:
Over the next few weeks, the CIVIL WAR proper title and a few of the
tie in books that are closely related to the story in the main book
will be shipping later than originally planned. In an attempt to
accommodate the creative team of Millar and McNiven and maintain the
artistic integrity and high standards of the event, we will be shifting
the following titles:

Haha! Trade waiters, like myself, don't have to worry about delays. We get to read through the whole thing all at once without having to deal with extra long cliff hangers.

Except that you'll have to wait EVEN LONGER for the trade now.
