Updated April 26, 2018: Astro City #52 has been re-scheduled to be released May 30 - six weeks past its originally solicited release date. This is the second delay that DC Comics has informed retailers of, and follows news that the publisher intends for the series to siege into standalone graphic novels.

Astro City #52 is now scheduled to come out May 16, four weeks later than the originally-solicited April 18 release date. Astro City #51 was already delayed two weeks, with it pencilled in for an April 4 release currently.
