Marvel has informed retailers that Empyre Handbook #1 has been pushed back three weeks to a new April 22 release date.
The one-shot is a continuation of the cult-favorite company staple The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, and in this case will profile the key players in the 2020 summer event Empyre.
The publisher did not give a reason for this change.
