ICv2 has a compact item — evidently taken from Marvel’s retailer mailing — revealing a delay in shipping for CIVIL WAR #7.
Marvel Comics has announced that Civil War #7, the finale to the blockbuster mini-series that was most recently slated to go on sale on January 31st, has been delayed until February 21st. A raft of related titles including Amazing Spider-Man #538, Fantastic Four #543, Moon Knight #8, and the Civil War Poster Book will also now ship to retailers for sale on February 21st (the complete list of the remaining Civil War releases and their new shipping dates is appended below). Marvel has announced that Civil War #7 will contain 28 pages of story content — six pages more than the ordinary comic, but will still retail for $2.99.
We haven’t been entirely up on the news, but the announcement seems to have been met with very little wailing and gnashing. It seems fans that a) fans WILL wait and b) retailers WILL continue to order Marvel Comics in large amounts. Looks like the only thing that ever really changes is the line-up of the Fantastic Four, and somehow, with a movie on the way we think Sue and Reed may just be back someday. Ah yes, the restoration of order.
