    These are not sports records; these are numbers for retailers to assist in future ordering (despite flaws).

    I know what they are, they are the new material from the Walmart magazines (which have also been available to direct market retailers). The releases of those books is not some mystery.
  3. I don't think DC is planning to be releasing...

    I don't think DC is planning to be releasing these that long, that is they plan to be releasing actual new stuff by then.

    It is just reprints from the Walmart books but it was either going to happen anyway or would have taken some time to properly plan out.

    Who knows, I have seen them tweeting with other people who are probably closer to being in the know than any of us, but that BC article is almost utterly 100% true if just a couple Black Label...

    Diamond is the distributor, as in they warehouse the items, package them for delivery, manage customer accounts and handle billing, damages, returns, etc. They do not actually print anything, and...

    That is for small creator owned stuff. Marvel/DC printing is way cheaper that that estimate.

    There is one thing that is probably not too variable, and that is that in both cases about 65% is...

    You just mentioned digital, which I corrected. There were reasons that solution was not going to work which had nothing to do with a give and take.

    He was just hyping his Newsarama article about the cuts he was about to publish, just saying something about "bad news...".

    While digital was part of the reason retailers were not on board, it had much bigger problems than that, and those retailers mentioned their issues.

    Not sure what exactly went into the decision, but something to note is that these are collected editions. They publish individual chapters digitally before they go to print.

    Marvel's cut of a comic's cover price is more than 10%. The typical retailer discount is around 50%, and Diamond probably takes 10% or something, so Marvel is getting 40% of the cover price. They get...

    The problem is if too many shops are out of business by the time books start shipping, and if when books start shipping there are even more problems that cause shops to close, print will pretty much...

    There are still many shops open, and many closed shops are able to operate in some way. Companies have to hope a lot of restrictions start to get lifted (of course it will not be all at once) to...

    But which of those industries has had production and shipping ceased? People keep trying to make this comparison, but if Diamond was shipping and printers were printing, comics would be out there...

    I think it would be a problem. There are people who cannot wait. If the biggest universe changing event just happened, is 90% of the readership really just going to wait 2 months, or 2 weeks even, or...

    Sorry if I am misreading, but are you saying retailers paid Diamond already for the books in the warehouse? Because most retailers do not pay until books are shipped, although they have different...
