Fifty-two titles. All monthly. All starting in September. All going day-and-date digital simultaneously – which can need a greater lead time than the printing press. Getting print dates and digital dates to match can be tricky when a publisher is dealing with Diamond on one side and Apple on the other.
Also, not every artist is as fast as they may need to be, some books have a greater lead in time than others, some writers were only attached to their respective comic a week ago.
And some books clearly have a greater appeal than others.
But rather than debate the pros and cons endlessly, we though we’d put out money where our mouth and organise a deadpool. From the list, make your choices…
1. Which book will first skip its solicited week of shipping?
2. Which book will first have a mismatch between digital and print availablity?
3. Which book will first skip the month it is solicited in?
4. Which book will first feature an unsolicited fill-in?
5. Which book will be cancelled first?
