    Default Doomsday Clock next issue is due out . . .

    Since we had this in that other thread,

    If anyone wants to post simply to point out that an issue of Doomsday Clock has been delayed again or that the JSA/LSH aren't back yet without contributing anything more, please do that elsewhere. I believe you have your own thread for that now.

    I am trying to be pleasant and respectful about this. Please try to respect the intent of this thread. Thank you.
    Here's a thread to post JUST the latest dates for when the next issue is due out.

    We had Issue #9 finally come out on March 6th.

    As for Issue #10, it was solicited for March 27th, then was moved to April 3rd. After that,

    And now Previewsworld lists issue #10 as "In Shops: Apr 17, 2019"

    Well, I did a spreadsheet of the releases.

    Doomsday Clock 1 November 22
    Doomsday Clock 2 December 27 1 month
    Doomsday Clock 3 January 24 1 month
    Doomsday Clock 4 March 28 2 months
    Doomsday Clock 5 May 30 2 months
    Doomsday Clock 6 July 25 2 months
    Doomsday Clock 7 September 26 2 months
    Doomsday Clock 8 December 5 3 months
    Doomsday Clock 9 March 6 3 months
    Doomsday Clock 10 April 10 1 month
    Doomsday Clock 11 May 22 1 month
    Doomsday Clock 12 ? ?

    I find it completely hilarious that DC thinks they're going to get the next issue out in 1 month, or even 1 month and 1 week.

    I fully expect a minimum of 3 months between each of the next issues:

    10: June
    11: September
    12: December

    Honestly someone at DC needs to take the fall for these delays and it cannot be Geoff Johns again.

    I really don’t care while quality is still high.
    It’s the best book published by DC at the moment and it’s worth the wait.

    Whether it's good or not, it's making statements about the future of the DC universe which are causing anxiety and frustration that do not need to be happening.

    Doesn't bother me. I'll read the issues when they come out and I'll read them again when the collected edition comes out.
    The Gypsies had no home. The Doors had no bass.

    Does our reality determine our fiction or does our fiction determine our reality?

    Whenever the question comes up about who some mysterious person is or who is behind something the answer will always be Frank Stallone.

    I’m not so sure it will affect so much the Dc universe.
    Rebirth effect has been severely reduced, probably only JSA and Legion will emerge from it.
    And this is probably one of the reason for the huge delay, anyway time will tell

    To be fair, DClock 8 took two months and one week. And that was all Vladimir Putin.

    Very fair. And if we actually get #10 before 3 months pass, I'll adjust my prediction.

    But right now: Doomsday Clock #12, December 2019.

    It wouldn't make any sense to change the ship date on issue #11 until after issue #10 actually ships (just like issue #10's date didn't start to change until they were actually ready to have issue #9 in stores).

    It would make sense in terms of managing fan expectations.

    Not that DC is at all good at that.

    It would "make sense" to bump the dates for two issues out week after week?

    Since we don't know why these issues are getting delayed in the first place, there's no guarantee that the following issue will have as long a delay as the upcoming one. And, it may not matter as much to Diamond or other comic book distributors to have the dates constantly delayed until DC knows when the previous issue will finally be released.

    Well, comments are accepted here, but they should be geared toward the release dates.

    The main purpose of creating this thread was because of Bored at 3:00AM's request to not post the latest date delays in that other thread.

    Violating the intent of this thread one last time to ask if the poster I mentioned has any comment on Bored at 3:00AM's repeated requests that only readers of the book post in his thread. Not doing in that thread because I already did and the poster disregarded it. And Bored had done it multiple times and the poster disregarded it multiple times. My apologies for violating the intent of this thread. Won't happen again.
