Battle Chasers Anthology out April 13th or July 12th?

Now, six months after it's proposed November 10th, 2010 release date the Battle Chasers Anthology delay is scheduled to be released on either April 13th, 2011 (Based on the Image Comics Website) or July 12th, 2011 (Based on Amazon.com). This isn't final but just the expected release date... hopefully we'll get it in our hands on it this year. Amazon still has a discount on the pre-order ($63 for the $100 Hardcover and $93 for the $150 Hardcover).

I'm sick of waiting. I don't know what is the problem.

I too have been waiting since the original November release date. First it was going to be an early Channukah present. Then a late Channukah present. Then a late birthday present. Now...I'm just waiting for the damn thing to come out already!

It would be nice if someone in the know were to let fans know what the holdup is. I find it kind of sad that this anthology mirrors the delays with the original issues. And the books are already finished! Was there a printing error? More sketches being added? New artwork being created?

And what's with the price change? The discount shown on Amazon's website was better when it had the March 8th release date; close to 50% off! Now it's back to the original discount? Considering how long this has been delayed, there should AT LEAST be a 50% discount!

Very frustrating.

Maybe they have problems with DC for legal rights in some issues... But I didn't know. I ordered mine in a Shop here in Barcelona... And I think my comic will be out before this BC Hardcover.

These delays are a bummer. It would be nice to hear some statement on the issue from Joe or someone at Image.
