In the “not shocking” comics news department, two of DC’s most high-profile projects are facing additional delays: Batman Damned by Brain Azzarello and Lee Bermejo; and Doomsday Clock by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank.

Batman Damned #3, the series conclusion, was originally scheduled for March 13 before being pushed back to March 27. That date is currently still listed as of this writing, but retailers were informed Wednesday that all orders had been cancelled for re-solicitation in May. This comes among questions about the overall future of DC’s Black Label.
