In Attempt To Out-Delay Competition, DC Delays Batman And The Signal #1 By Two Months

DC expects to resolicit the title in January.

First DC announced a one week delay for Dark Knights: Metal #4. Then Marvel countered with a two week delay for Spider-Men II #4. DC one-upped Marvel this time with the reveal that Batman And The Signal #1 would be delayed for at least two months. DC expects to re-solicit it for a January 2018 release. Orders for the first and second issue have been cancelled.

No reason was given for the change, although this is the second change for the title which was originally announced as an ongoing and was amended to a three issue mini-series.

The original solicit info is below.
