SUPERMAN UNCHAINED Put Back On The Chain: #8 And #9 Cancelled For Now

by

unchainedHere’s some unwelcome news for fans of Scott Snyder and Jim Lee‘s Superman Unchained. DC has taken issues #8 and #9 of the limited series out of solicitations for the foreseeable future. The final two issues of the series will be resolicited at a later date, meaning the earliest we could see #8 is in July.

As Bleeding Cool points out, issue #7 was meant to come out in February but ended up being delayed until April 30th. Issue #8 was originally scheduled for last week with issue #9 meant to be out on April 30th, but now we’ll have to wait quite a while longer. You can see the solicit info and covers for the two final issues below. Under that you can see what writer Scott Snyder had to say about the cancellation/resolicitation news on Twitter. What do you think about Superman Unchained being chained back up?
