supermanconfidential6.jpgDC Comics has announced some scheduling issues with Superman Confidential. First up is issue #6 that was supposed to be the final chapter of the Kryptonite storyline, written by Darwyn Cooke and illustrated by Tim Sale, will now appear in a future issue of Superman Confidential.

This also means the Kryptonite Hardcover has been canceled and will be resolicited at a later date.

Take the jump for a break down of the next four issues of Confidential.

SUPERMAN CONFIDENTIAL #6 (MAY070149) now will feature the story that had been scheduled for issue #7, written by Jimmy Palmiotti & Justin with art and cover by Koi Turnbull and Sandra Hope. In this story, the first chapter of a two-part tale, the fate of Metropolis is at stake when Superman gets mixed up with Lori Lemaris!

SUPERMAN CONFIDENTIAL #6 (MAY070149) is scheduled to arrive in stores on September 26. Retailers may adjust orders on this issue through the Final Order Cutoff date of September 6.

SUPERMAN CONFIDENTIAL #7 (JUN070175) now will feature the concluding half of the the story written by Jimmy Palmiotti & Justin with art and cover by Koi Turnbull and Sandra Hope, originally scheduled to appear in issue #8. This issue includes appearances by Lori Lemaris, Lex Luthor and Lois Lane, and is scheduled to arrive in stores on October 17.

SUPERMAN CONFIDENTIAL #8 (JUL070223) now will feature a story written by Vito Delsante with art by Julian Lopez & Bit and a cover by Pete Woods, originally scheduled to appear in issue #9. This issue, guest-starring Golden Age Green Lantern Alan Scott, is scheduled to arrive in stores on October 31.

SUPERMAN CONFIDENTIAL #9 (SEP070187) now will feature the first part of a three-part story written by Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning with art and cover by Chris Batista & Cam Smith. In this issue, witness Superman’s fateful first encounter with The Forever People and Darkseid! When Beautiful Dreamer goes missing, the Forever People take their search to Earth, only to find The Man of Steel! But as the battle between New Genesis and Apokolips rages on, Superman finds himself — and all of Earth — caught in the middle! SUPERMAN CONFIDENTIAL #9 is scheduled to arrive in stores on November 14.

So it looks like it is going to be at least four months before the concluding chapter of Kryptonite hits the stands. This is another in the ongoing problems DC has had in getting titles to ship on time. Wonder Woman and Action Comics have both suffered delays causing the stories to be dropped and readers confused.

    This is hideous when it happens in a monthly, but there is no excuse for lateness in an anthology title.There has to be better planning. I understand that comapnies want”top tier” cretors to work on their titles but thsi cheats the fans.

    With that bitter sounding interview Cooke gave recently this news really isn’t that big a surprise.

    Man, way to kill interest. Let’s publish a story, get everyone interested, then hold off on the ending.

    I am really concerned for DC, this seems to be becoming a regular thing.
