Updated June 13, 2019: DC has once again rescheduled Shazam! #7's release, pegging it now at July 24.

The series was originally solicited For June 19, but was rescheduled twice before now.

With this rescheduling, July 31's Shazam! #8 has been rescheduled for an August 7 release.

That would be a two-week space between two issues, both solicited to be written by Geoff Johns and drawn by Dale Eaglesham.

 

Updated June 5, 2019: Shazam! #7 has slid back two additional weeks with a current projected release date of July 17.

#7 and #8 were both pushed back two weeks on May 30.

As of now, Shazam! #8 remains on a July 31 release date - two weeks after #7's new release date.
 

Original Story: DC have informed retailers that Shazam! #7 and #8 have both been pushed back two weeks. #7 is now scheduled for a July 3 release, with #8 following it on July 31. #9 remains on schedule for a August 21 release.

DC had previously done similiar schedule shifts for Shazam! #2, #5, and #6, and additional unsolicited artists have also chipped in on certain issues.

The publisher and creators have not shared a reason for the delays.

Here are the updated solicitations:
