Cause of Death: Lateness

Astonishing X-Men #21 has been delayed from March to May. Astonishing X-Men #22 has been delayed from April to July.

If ever there was a call to justify trade-waiting? This is it. Hell, this is justification for sitting out the entire bloody run until it's completed and collected.

Curiously, other examples include "All-Star Superman", "Authority" and "Age of Bronze"... is there some kind of vast conspiracy against the letter A in the comics industry? Were Dan DiDio and Joe Quesada equally traumatized by an episode of "Sesame Street" where that furry elephant creature tried to teach them the alphabet?
