Marvel Comics has informed retailers that Champions #2 has been postponed three weeks, and is now estimated for a May 27 release. It was originally solicited to come out May 6.
The broader question of when or how any of Marvel's upcoming titles will be released after Diamond Comic Distributors' announced stoppage which began this week. On Thursday, Marvel told retailers that a "larger scale plan" to address these coronavirus-influenced shipping problems is being developed, but that they have nothing to announce on that front at this time.
Here is the solicitation for Champions #2:
EVE L. EWING (W) • SIMONE DI MEO (A)
Cover by TONI INFANTE
VARIANT COVER BY MEGHAN HETRICK
DARK MARVEL VARIANT COVER BY JAVIER GARRÓN
• When clashing protests over the teen vigilante ban break out across Chicago, the Champions risk their freedom to protect the young protestors from overzealous C.R.A.D.L.E. agents — but Chicago’s own hometown hero, Ironheart, is nowhere to be seen.
• Where is Riri Williams? Why has she abandoned the Champions? And could it have anything to do with the mole in their ranks…?
