I see November dates. January 07 dates?


Well, its not the first time I've dropped mini's during the series.
And its certainly NOT the first time I've dropped buying comics.

What a silly little industry.

I thought Microsoft was bad about getting products out on time.

Seeing as I wasn't buying Civil War, it doesn't bother me too much that it's being delayed (beyond general annoyance at Marvel's incompetence).

What does annoy me is that it delays the release of books I actually buy, like Amazing Spider-Man. Sure the delays forestall JMS' inevitable slide back into magic themed stories that will make me cry, but damnit it's stupid for half a dozen titles to be getting delayed just because Marvel can't be bothered to add another artist to keep things coming out on time.

Because maintaining the creative team is much more important than meeting deadlines.

*sighs, rolls eyes*

(1) McNiven's not that great anyway, not with the colourist they've assigned to him.

(2) Didn't the learn from the delays in his Not Avengers work?

(3) Shouldn't they have made sure that the main series was in the can before they tied it in with seventy-odd other books, potentially delaying them all? Wouldn't that have been sensible?

Stupid Marvel.

Still, it gives Millar plenty of titme to come up with some kind of justification for Thor throwing his lot in with the registration people.

I echo Kelvin: when it was announced that Mark Millar and Steve McNiven were doing a Big Marvel Summer Event Comic, did anyone really think it was going to be shipping on time?

The man took 2 1/2 years to do Ultimates v1, fer Chrissake.
