I buy ONE comic from DC, just ONE... and I haven't paid for that comic in what will be more than 3 months when it FINALLY arrives in September. I am a HUGE Shazam fan (I don't give a diddly do dah what they call him, although not being "Marvel" makes naming the others a little problematic) and I have been adamant about supporting this hero in a solo comic since I heard it was coming (multiples of years after it was given to us as a backup in Justice League of the New 52).
The FIRST ISSUE was late. There have been no less than two other issues late, with #7 being so far from when it was originally solicited, I cannot even fathom how DC thinks they can run a business like this.
Since Geoff Johns is the writer, and he's also responsible for the train wreck release schedule that is Doomsday Clock, I've simply lost all respect for the man. I don't think I'll ever buy another book with his name on it again because of this, I don't give a damn how good the writing is... he's letting everyone down, A LOT, and it's disgraceful to all the creators who CAN get their work done ON TIME.
If I only collect one comic, and Shazam is an option, I want to say that Shazam is that book. But I don't know if I can keep running into this over and over again.
I have purchased the Doomsday Clock issues (up to #6, when the release schedule started to get super tedious) and now I don't even care how the story ends up. I can't even remember how the story started 14 years ago, when issue #1 came out (sarcasm included free of charge).
Is anyone else fed up with delayed comics (DC, get it)?
