Secret Wars Might Last Longer Than Originally Planned – Delays And New Release Dates

When it comes to the Marvel Universe of the comic books right now, there is only Secret Wars. The problem with that is when the main series gets delayed, it means some of the tie-in books need to follow suit, especially the ones that reference the overarching story in some way.

That’s exactly what has happened with Secret Wars #4, which was supposed to be in stores on June 17. Now we won’t be seeing that issue until July 1, and issue #5 has been pushed back as well. Subsequent issues might not get delayed in turn since Marvel had always planned for the back half of the series to be released at a slower pace, but it certainly could mean that the whole thing might not wrap up when it was originally planned. So unless we get issues 6 and 7 in rapid succession, for instance, this event is going to stretch a decent way into the fall.

Which series are affected? Bleeding Cool has the whole list as it stands now, but we figured we’d spell some pf it out for you to make things even easier.
