Thursday Trending Topics: Another Day Of Spoilers

Posted by November 25, 2011 Comment

As Rich notes in today’s top post, spoilers have been a major topic of conversation this week.  And if what happened in this particular instance is an accidental editorial slip, I’m frankly surprised it doesn’t happen more often.  Because the editorial side of the equation doesn’t think about the timeline in terms of just in-store date.  There are many internal markers a project passes on its way to the store, and tracking them is no small thing (Avatar generates a monstrous amount of internal data doing this very thing, and we put out 10 percent of the books Marvel does on a good month).  So the occasional accidental spoiler is going to happen, particularly in the always-on, realtime information era.
