NYX won't go gentle into that good night: When news came of NYX's cancellation, I feared I would no longer have a chronically late-shipping book to mock. After all, what title this side of Spawn or Youngblood could run eight months behind schedule and still taunt readers with promises of a next issue? It seems my fears were unfounded, though, as Marvel prolongs NYX's death throes. Diamond's latest shipping update shows that Issue 5 -- originally set for a Feb. 11 release -- now will come out Sept. 22. Issue 6 has been resolicited for Nov. 17, with the series finale bumped to -- wait for it -- Jan. 12. Yes, that's 2005.
