#73 (The start of a new storyline)actually shipped a week or two earlier than #72 (what was suppose to be the last chapter of OLd Man Logan).
I can't seem to recall that happening elsewhere as well.
Just wondering if anyone else can recall that happening to another title.

      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.

    I assume you mean issue 72 was a fill-in between #71 and #73? If so, yes, that's happened often. Or, did #73 ship before #72? I've never heard of that before.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Spider-Man/Black Cat mini. Kevin Smith really pushed the boundaries on that one. And, while it was decent, it wasn't worth the year and a half wait.
