So Trials of Shazam 8 is now coming out Sep 12? The last update showed the release date as Oct. 3. The only reason I haven't dropped this title is that it's so scattershot it doesn't even register anymore.

I plan on picking up the Black Canary Wedding Planner for the sheer fact it's Jann Jones' baby. I met her in May and she's an absolute sweetheart. And she seems to be lots of fun. So I'm looking forward to seeing how that translates.
