This week my cutoff was September 6. There are a bunch of comics coming out this week that had their prior issue come out back then: Lucha Libre #2 (Image), Steve Niles Strange Cases #2 (Image), Strange Embrace #5 (Image) and Y the Last Man #59 (DC/Vertigo). Strange Embrace was ordered back in July, so that one looks to be the officially late one of this batch.
Emily the Strange Vol 2 #2 (Dark Horse) and Hellboy Darkness Calls #6 (Dark Horse) are both coming out tomorrow, and they both had their prior issues hit shelves back on August 29. Hellboy was ordered back in July, so that one looks to be late.
FINALLY Astonishing X-Men #23 (Marvel, pictured) is coming out, as is Tales From the Crypt #2 (Papercutz). Both of these late arrivals saw their prior issues come out back on August 22nd.
And the longest wait of the week was for New Avengers Illuminati #5 (Marvel), which had issue #4 show up back on August 1st. We ordered it in September, so it probably isn't late, just coming out quarterly.
