Chris Burnham confirmed the report on Twitter
Chris Burnham confirmed a Bleeding Cool report that DC has decided to delay the release of Batman Incorporated #3 due to a scene it deemed was too close to comfort to last week's theatre shooting in Aurora, Colorado.
On his Twitter page, Burnham noted that the delay was not due to a production delay, but rather because DC was "trying to do the right thing". When a follower brought up that many comics feature gun violence, Burnham retorted that there was scene that shared some sort of resemblence to the recent shootings, which claimed twelve lives. Burnham also noted that DC did not appear ready to pulp the current printing of Batman Incorporated #3 and ask the creative team to revise the issue without the scene in question.
The issue, which was scheduled to be released tomorrow, July 25th, will instead be released on August 22nd.
