Those Civil War delays don’t just affect Marvel, you know; it’s something that James Sime has considered:
[W]hile the industry is in an uproar about this latest outrage your friends at the Isotope have been thinking about what a great and unique opportunity this presents for independent comic creators and publishers. Because surely Wizard Magazine and industry news sites that get a majority of their content from Marvel Comics have also come to the conclusion that a six-week delay in the comics also means a six-week delay in those spoiler-laden articles about the twists and turns of the Civil War storyline.
And if Wizard isn’t running those articles next month… they’re going to need to run something else, aren’t they? After all, you can’t have a magazine without content, can you? So we’re encouraging all our indy comic creating and publishing friends to contact Wizard and those industry news sites and take this unique opportunity to get their books some press!
If one of the side-effects of CW missing two months is that Wizard becomes an indie-haven, that’ll be silver lining enough for me, thanks…
