I remember, back in the 1980's, when Jim Shooter ran Marvel, that a delayed book was VERY rare. I cannot recall the "Dreaded Deadline Doom" even cropping up during his tenure as EIC of Marvel.

Say what you will about the man, but he KNEW how to run the business, unlike many of these young kids today!

Back then Shooter would put people like Al Milgom and Don Perlin on titles because they could meet their deadlines. This forced major talents to get their act together as they didn't want to be replaced by third-string talents. Plus if someone was late, there was always someone in the Bullpen waiting to pitch in. And Shooter had file cabinets full of filler stories that were used quite often. I think this was started before his tenure but he did continue it. In the 70s the answer for the DDD was throw in a reprint. In the 80s it was get someone else to draw the issue. Today it's just let the book be late for a month or two or eight.
