With Scott Snyder’s Justice League already on it’s second issue and James Tynion IV’s Justice League Dark ready to hit stands July 25th, we are getting word via Newsarama that Joshua Williamson’s Justice League Odyssey will be delayed.

Justice League Odyssey #1 has been postponed from July 11th to August 29th. Also the second issue of the series has been pushed back from August 8th to September 26th. With that said the third issue of the series, which had been slated for a September 12th release will inevitably be delayed.

Although the exact reason for the delay is yet to be revealed, artist Stjepen Sejic has taken to Twitter to say that there was “a miscommunication between production lines and 2 already completed issues had to be scrapped”. But he goes on to reassure fans that everyone working on the book “are all very much dedicated to getting this book made and made right.”

Here are the new solicits for the first two issues of Justice League Odyssey:
JUSTICE LEAGUE ODYSSEY #1
written by JOSHUA WILLIAMSON
art and cover by STJEPAN SEJIC
variant cover by TERRY DODSON and RACHEL DODSON
Spinning out of JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE! When a cosmic menace threatens worlds beyond our own in the Ghost Sector, it falls to a new Justice League team to answer the call to battle! Cyborg, Starfire, Green Lantern Jessica Cruz and an out-of-his-element Azrael head to deep space inside a commandeered Brainiac Skull Ship. But as these wildcard teammates try to stop Despero from slave-trading Coluan refugees, they discover something that nothing in the universe could have prepared them for: Darkseid…who says he’s there to help?!

JUSTICE LEAGUE ODYSSEY #2
written by JOSHUA WILLIAMSON
art and cover by STJEPAN SEJIC
variant cover by TERRY DODSON and RACHEL DODSON
Cyborg, Starfire, Green Lantern Jessica Cruz and Azrael debate whether so-called “God of Evil” Darkseid should have joined the team. (Too late—that evil horse has left the barn!) But before the team can resolve this conflict, they’re forced into action when Vril Dox takes an interest in the Coluan refugees, attacking their ship with a new Manhunter army of his own creation. ’Cuz more violence is always the answer!

I am very curious to find out the exact miscommunication that went down to cause two finished books to be thrown out. With that said I have no doubt that this book will be worth the wait. With storytelling from Williamson and Sejic’s gorgeous artwork, this book will be amazing when it hits the stands. For now we still have Justice League and Justice League Dark.

What are your thought on the delay? Is this a title you had been looking forward to? Let us know in the comment section below!
