DC Comics Down Over $2 Million On Projected Figures For 2015

convergenceWorldsFinest2Word reaches Bleeding Cool from numerous well-connected sources that, according to the books, DC Comics are down over 2 million dollars for the financial year beginning in 2015 than they were originally budgeted for, so far.

And why?

I’m told that it’s a mixture of excess costs from the move from New York to Burbank, over and above what was planned, as well as a reduction in revenue due to a poorer performance that was expected from the Convergence event, and a lack of a bump for the June mini-relaunch.

And all those returnable comics have to be paid for somewhere. It was this kind of thing that saw DC Comics restrict the qualification for DC titles to be made returnable.

What is happening as a result? Well, I’m told that DC Comics beancounters have a plan. More on that later today.

But a lot is riding on Dark Knight III….
