The upcoming "New Age of DC Heroes" titles (formerly known as "Dark Matter") have been rescheduled for a 2018 release, with some solicited titles pushed back as much as three months. Damage, The Silencer, The Terrifics, and The Immortal Men have all been rescheduled, with new final order cut-off dats as well.
"These new on-sale dates will let us provide retailers with advance PDFs of complete issues before they reach Final Order Cutoff," says DC Co-Publisher Dan DiDio. "Since these series spin out of Metal, we've also realigned the on-sale dates on some of the debut issues to hit stores at the same time as key issues of Metal."
James Tynion IV and Jim Lee's The Immortal Men #1 is now set for a March 14 release, 14 weeks after its originally-solicited December 6 debut. The publishers states this will now coincide with Dark Nights: Metal #6. Immortal Men #2 is now set for an April 11 release, jumping from January 3.
The Silencer by Dan Abnett and John Romita Jr. is rescheduled for a January 31 release, three weeks later than its initial January 10 plans. This release will now coincide with the delayed Dark Nights: Metal #5. As a result, Silencer #2 is being moved from January 17 to February 28 - now being released in tandem with Doomsday Clock #3.
The Terrifics by Jeff Lemire and Ivan Reis will debut three weeks later than originally solicited, now timed to coincide with February 28's Doomsday Clock #3.
Sideways by Dan DiDio, Justin Jordan, and Kenneth Rocafort has been pushed back five weeks, with #1 now solicited for February 14 - coinciding with Dark Nights Rising: The Wild Hunt #1.
Robert Venditti and Tony S. Daniel's Damage #1 has been rescheuled from December 20 to January 17. As a result, the solicited second issue has moved from January 24 to February 21.
