Lion Forge's Catalyst Prime: Seven Days event has been pushed back three months to a new October 2 debut.

Originally announced to run from July to September, Seven Days is a crossover event with all of Catalyst Prime's characters. The seven-issue event will be written by Gail Simone and drawn by Jose Luis. As part of the event, Lion Forge decided to suspend all of the line's ongoing titles during its run.

"It’s seven issues, bi-weekly. No other CPU books come out during the seven issues, so you don’t have a million tie-ins you have to buy or a thousand variants you can’t get," Simone told Deadline in March. "It’s just this one, massive story, like a lightning bolt in the middle of your comics purchases. We mess things up. But we have fun."

Catalyst Prime: Seven Days is now set to run from October 2019 through January 2020.

The publisher hasn't specified if the linewide hiatus on the ongoing titles will continue through Seven Days' new release schedule as originally intended.

Here is the updated solicitation for the first issue. Look for Lion Forge's full October 2019 solicitations later this month.

DAY ONE: Lorena Payan was the first to realize a meteor was hurtling towards Earth two years ago. Now, she's the first to realize the Earth is in danger once more from something equally cosmic but far more sinister. As dubbed by a mystery figure, the Obsidian Men begin appearing silently all over the globe, and our heroes Noble, Summit, and Accell join together to investigate.
