If you were hoping to get your X-Men fix right after the first of the year, you might have to wait a little longer — Marvel's postponed three upcoming issues. According to a new report by Newsarama, the House of Ideas is postposing X-Men #5 four weeks, having it hit shelves January 29th instead of its originally-solicited date of January 1st. Instead, X-Men #4 will be taking that spot on the first.

Because of the delay, X-Men #6 and X-Men #7 will now both come out in February 2020, two weeks apart from each other. The sixth issue will drop February 12, 2020 while X-Men #7 will make its way to comic shops February 26, 2020. Beginning with X-Men #4, the mutant leaders of Krakoa will attend a global economic forum to reveal to the masses just how serious the new-found country operates.

The solicitations for the postponed issues can be found below.
