Monday's Headlines | IDW's NARCOS Title Postponed Indefinitely

IDW Publishing's four-issue Narcos title has been removed from the schedule. Diamond Comic Distributors informed retailers of the publisher's decision this week, which comes after the series was previously postponed from its original April debut. According to the distributor, IDW intends to re-solicit the series sometime in the future.

Based on the popular Netflix series, Narcos was to be created by writer Ryan Ferrier and artist Vic Malhotra. The publisher has given no reason for the schedule change or postponement of the series. 

Here is the solicitation for the now-canceled first issue:
