    Sort of a recent example where MArvel didn't wait for the creators to finish was Millar's and McNiven's Old Man Logan storyline. It was suppose to wrap up in Wolverine #72 and ended up shipping after Wolverine #73. It was shipped either the week or two weeks before.
    The stories did not continue but I'm sure this may have happened before.
    Does anyone remember any other titles this may have happened to.
    Personally I would like the comics to ship on time. It's a job just like any other. I've never missed a deadline in my work and I don;t want to think what would happen if I did. Unless there are unforeseen circumstances comics should have no problem meeting a monthly schedule.
    If you can't produce the work on time, don't take it.


Very well said. I'm so tired of fans, or companies themselves, coming up with excuses for books being late. It just shouldn't happen. I too work (well, I should be working right now! \:\-P ) where meeting deadlines means politicians get more votes and I'm very aware of the repercussions of being late and not meeting deadlines. Perhaps Marvel should be harder on those guys that keep missing deadlines. Put a clause in their contract that they'll be penalized if they don't meet deadlines, and see how that plays out.
