It’s a fairly classic good news/bad news moment for Jonathan Hickman fans, as Image Comics announces that Feel Better Now won’t be released this month as originally solicited, but that’s because it’s going to be a much longer book than originally intended.
“Unfortunately, during the course of creating this story, it got bigger. Far beyond the 40 pages we had allocated for the book, and, as a result, I have decided to give the story the scope I feel it deserves,” Hickman says in the PR. “Right now, we think the best thing to do is pull it from Diamond and re-solicit the book at a later date when we can firm up the final price point, page count and delivery date. I apologize for the inconvenience, but sometimes these things take on a life of their own and FEEL BETTER NOW is a story that deserves a full canvas.”
Running on time, however, are the reissue of The Nightly News and the collection of The Red Wing, due November and October respectively. Hickman also says that he’s already at work on next year’s The Manhattan Projects and new ongoing series Secret.
