DC Comics Postpones The Release Of New Batman Issue Due To Colorado Shooting

New Batman comic release delayed

In another respectable decision from the folks behind the Dark Knight, DC Entertainment has decided to postpone the release of Batman Incorporated #3 in wake of the shootings in Aurora, Colorado.

In an email sent to comic book retailers carrying the issue, the company instructed proprietors to withhold it until August 22nd instead of placing it on the shelves tomorrow as originally scheduled.

Apparently, DC fears that the content could be considered "insensitive" and wrote:

"Out of respect for the victims and families in Aurora, Colorado DC Entertainment has made the decision to postpone the release of Batman Incorporated #3 for one month because the comic contains content that may be perceived as insensitive in light of recent events."

We don't know what the "content" in question is, but Chris Burnham — one of the authors of the comic — has stated:

"It's not just a Batman comic with guns in it. There's a specific scene that made DC & the whole Bat-team say 'Yikes.' Too close for comfort."

Judging by the blood dripping off of Batman's hands on the cover, we think DC made the right decision.
