People who’ve been waiting for the third issue of Batman Incorporated… You’ll have to keep waiting: It’s being delayed a month following the horrific Aurora, Colorado shooting of last week. DC released an email to retailers yesterday explaining that “Out of respect for the victims and families in Aurora, Colorado DC Entertainment has made the decision to postpone the release of BATMAN INCORPORATED #3 for one month because the comic contains content that may be perceived as insensitive in light of recent events.”
On Twitter, artist Chris Burnham went into more detail, saying that “The book printed on time. I’m looking at a copy on my desk right now. This isn’t a scheduling excuse, we’re trying to do the right thing,” before adding that “it’s not just a Batman comic with guns in it. There’s a specific scene that made DC & the whole Bat-team say ‘Yikes.’ Too close for comfort.”
The new ship date for the book is August 22.
