Here we are, once again, on a Tuesday night, looking at what's on the invoice for tomorrow's shipment. Are you ready? I hope so!
First, let's look at what you've been waiting for - the namesake of this particular weekly post. These comics have gone 2+ months between issues. Some are late, but others just come out less frequently on purpose. Let's see what we've got for this week.
Steve Niles Strange Cases #3 (Image) is coming out tomorrow, and the prior issue came out back on November 7th. It was ordered in October, so there is a chance that this is late.
Now we're getting to the big gaps - Kabuki Reflections #9 (Marvel) is arriving tomorrow, and the last issue of that came out about 7 months ago - back on June 13th. We ordered this in September (probably a re-solicit too) so I am quite sure it's late. I don't know why Marvel puts this into the Previews without having a good 8-12 issues in the can!
And finally, the latest of the late for this week is Fell #9 (Image)-pictured. Yes, believe it or not, the series didn't end at issue #8. Only two issues of this comic book came out in 2007 - and the last one, #8, came out WAY back on April 11th. We ordered issue #9 in May - this is one of those comics that Diamond should have canceled and forced them to resolicit. If there is enough time to get pregnant and give birth to that baby between the time the issue is solicited and the time it arrives - that's too long. Creating a comic should be faster than creating a human being!
Ok, enough of that. Now lets look at what's going on in the world of Marvel & DC mini-series. There don't seem to be any mini-series ending this week. Thankfully only one is starting!
