My comic collection. Go on, have a look. You know you want to .
Honestly I kind of saw this coming with UA #3. If #2 was being delayed, most likely #3 was going to be as well too.
I Agree and posted in this forum before that it was disappointed in the delay as well, it is upsetting. But until I know really why it was delay, I will not make a judgement on the industry for this delay. If it was a family, personal or something else along those lines then I am willing to cut some slack. If it is short shortsightedness, laziness or something along those lines then I am not going to cut some slack.
Will this make me Drop the Book though?: Not at All!
The Book is really good and well drawn, there are other things in life to get upset about that are way, way, way more important. A book this good and the First Book with Wanda, Scarlet Witch back in it is Worth waiting for. So I will support it, even with the delay and hope the Bugs are worked out in the end.

It's a shame to hear about the delays but given the sales draw of this book so far it's hard to say whether the delays will affect the book all that much with how well titles like Astonishing X-Men and Children's Crusade still sold despite the delays. Granted, there were pretty big sales slides towards the end of CC in the Diamond estimates charts but I think it still sold well overall.
One thing which will be interesting is how the delays will affect the book's performance compared to the more frequently shipped Avengers books like Hickman's Avengers and New Avengers so it's very possible that the timeliness of those two books will cause those two to overtake Uncanny Avengers and could maybe even push that book further down.
Really?! I thought for a minute, looking at the heavy launch list for next week, that #2 might have been delayed to get people to try some of the new titles.
Issue three is delayed as well though? I'm not happy. This is the book I'm most excited for in the entire 'NOW!' initiative. This news is annoying in ways that nothing else in comics could be.
Don't know why people are complaining about the delays. They had to beg Cassaday to draw this book and he probably warned them about the delays but they really wanted to repeat AXM. Too bad this isn't Astonishing.
Personally I never thought Cassidys' stuff was all that great. Not bad by any means... but he doesn't fall under the "worth the wait" category in my book at least.
I'm pretty sure Uncanny Avengers is going to sell well no matter what, so if he can't handle the monthly grind I'd prefer it if the handed the art responsibilities to someone that could. Obviously if it's an important book it shouldn't be drawn by someone they just found off the street or something... but I'm sure they could find someone suitable for the task.

The problem with delays is that it corrupts other stories being told by other writers. Look at Astonishing X-Men. Hmm... that was Cassaday too. Coincidence? Nah.

It's not like we personally asked him to draw the book, nor did he warn us at least that there would be delays. If he did in fact warm marvel (something I doubt any of us know for a fact one way or the other), then you can certainly argue they don't have a right to complain. But readers aren't in that same boat.
I'm assuming though that Uncanny Avengers is actually going to be an important book in Marvel Now, so it might be more of a problem. Right now in the least a good portion of the Marvel Now books haven't even come out yet so it still might not be that huge a deal. But I would imagine this isn't something they want happening regularly once things really get rolling.
I'd take substandard art at this point if it meant getting on time chapters of this particular book.
At this rate we'll be skipping entire months, which is going to afffect the quailty of the narrative (as there will undoubtably by sync issues with events and such).
This, as is it stands, is just unacceptable.
