Neither Marvel or DC can apparently get a big event done on time
Today’s announcement of the delay of “Secret Invasion” #8 until Dec. 3, combined with the late shipping on “Final Crisis” and the replacement of the artist on the final issue, leads me to conclude that neither Marvel or DC can handle the number of events they are trying to publish back to back.
Last night, I read Marv Wolfman’s introduction to one of the “Teen Titans” archives, in which he said, during his run, he tried to mix up “big event” storylines with smaller, character-based storylines. He felt this made the book more compelling to readers, and, since he stayed on the book as the writer for 16 years, I’d give some credence to his opinion.
What do you think? Do you care if your “event books” are on time? Does late shipping screw up your enjoyment of other books in the same “universe”? Or if it’s good enough, does it matter?
