Out of Respect for Aurora Victims, Batman Incorporated Issue #3 Held Back For A Month

Yesterday retailers were given notice that Batman Incorporated, Issue #3 which was expected to hit stands this Wednesday July 25th, will be be held back for a month. The reason stated is that this is due to content in the issue that would be considered insensitive so soon after the movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado during the midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises.

I don’t know exactly what content or imagery is being referred to since I don’t have any advanced viewing of this book, but I think its an excellent judgement call on DC Comics part. Batman Incorporated is one of the few DC New 52 books I’m digging right now, so I’m bummed about the additional wait, while at the same completely respecting the reasons.
