Updated April 18, 2019: Don't expect Doomsday Clock #10 until May 22 at the soonest, according to an update provided to retailers by DC. For the fifth week in a row, the publisher has re-scheduled the planned release of this issue of Geoff Johns and Gary Frank's event comic book.

DC has not given a reason for the delay, but this comes as Johns two other major projects - Shazam! and the DC Universe Stargirl show - are also being pushed back on their schedules.

Updated April 10, 2019: DC has rescheduled Doomsday Clock #10 once again, now telling retailers the book is scheduled to come out May 15 - two months later than the originally-solicited March 27 date.

Every week for the past four weeks, DC has revised the release date of Doomsday Clock #10 - but has not given a reason for the delay. Series artist Gary Frank last shared art from #10 February 22 on Twitter.

Updated April 3, 2019: Doomsday Clock #10 has been pushed back yet again, with DC now estimating a May 8 release.

Originally solicited to come out back on March 27, Doomsday Clock #10 has now been rescheduled five times.

DC has declined to comment on the situation.


Updated March 27, 2019: DC has pushed back Doomsday Clock #10 for the fourth time, now aiming for a May 1 release date.

Doomsday Clock #10 was originally solicited to be released five weeks prior on March 27.

Doomsday Clock #11 remains solicited for a May 22 release.

Updated March 20, 2019: Doomsday Clock #10 has been pushed back once again, with DC now estimating it'll be released April 24. That's a week later than they told retailers last week, and four weeks past its originally-solicited date.


Updated March 14, 2019: Doomsday Clock #10 has been rescheduled a second time, with a new April 17 release date. That is a one-week push back from the rescheduling last week off its originally-solicited March 27 date.

Original Story: DC have informed retailers that Doomsday Clock #10 has been rescheuled for April 10 - two weeks later than previously solicited.

When first launched, DC planned for Doomsday Clock to run monthly from November 2017 to December 2018, with March and August as planned skip-months. After #2 and #3 were rescheduled, Johns announced in January 2018 that series was going bi-monthly

"A huge huge thank you for your patience with Gary Frank and I. We're shifting Doomsday Clock to bi-monthly. I know how disappointing that is, truly. We are trying to do our best work with 32 pages an issue and going down to 20 pages a month was not an option for us," tweeted Johns in January 2018. "We hope we'll go back to monthly at some point, but bi-monthly is guaranteed. We'd rather tell you when it's coming out than just be late. Again, thank you to the readers and retailers and apologies. I hope we're delivering a story that's worth your time, money & patience!"

Subsequent Doomsday Clock issues continued to be solicited and then rescheduled.

Doomsday Clock #11 is currently scheduled to be released May 22.

Here is the updated solicitation for #10:
