    I would have thought today myself, but usually they'd up in full by now. As Major Hoy poster there are a few cobbled together lists based on already announced titles for July, but nothing complete yet.
    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    Die - Paper Girls - Runaways - The Wild Storm

    Solicits are definitely late. Should've been at 6pm UK time today. Instead, we only got some annuals announced today (Punisher, Venom, and Ms Marvel).

    Monday was Patriot's Day so I wonder if the holiday pushed the release to Wednesday.

    Isn't Patriots' Day only a recognized holiday in 5 or 6 American states? Seems like an odd reason to delay solicits. It would only be slightly less weird than delaying them due to Orangemen's day.

    There's probably a big announcement coming up.

    Just checked... and yeah, it's not a holiday in New York.

    Massachusetts, Maine, Wisconsin, Connecticut, North Dakota and Florida observe it.

    When Prof. Warren mentioned it I assumed it was a national holiday.

    It's functionally just a state employee holiday and no private business closes down for it, unless they're along the Boston Marathon route.

    It is usually the third Tuesday of a month but not in months with five Tuesdays when it is usually the fourth Tuesday.

    This is a rule of thumb. Sometimes they come out on the third Tuesday anyway.

    No, it's always third Tuesday. And the sales figures are usually second Monday. Both are late this month for some reason.

    Since DC's solicits are already out, there's no way we're not getting the solicits until next Tuesday. It's this week.

    True, Patriot's Day isn't much of a holiday here.

    Maybe! Although at this point I honestly can't imagine what they could possibly have left for big announcements in July!
