As some of you may know, Dark Horse Comics was supposed to release a graphic novel based on Nintendo’s ARMS sometime this year. Well, we say “was”, because the graphic novel has been delayed to early next year.
The news was broken via the Free Comic Book day preview comic for the graphic novel that was released last Saturday. The cover of said comic — which you can see this in the photo by Twitter user Joe Fourhman — comes with small print stating that the graphic novel will be “available at your local comics shop in January 2019.”

As for why the graphic novel was delayed, no reason has been given as of yet.
