We'll also be getting a "Fall variant" when it's nearly Spring. And a Valentines variant when its nearly Summer (probably).

At this point, I almost think the Valentine's variant will be scrapped in favour of a new one. The fall one I can see working without the seasonal attachment, plus it's already at press pretty much.

replacing a finished cover sounds unlikely? I hope they dont, because a) Diana Skelly <3 and b) it might be the only time we ever see Lah

The cover to SU#47 was finished (and closer to press) before it was entirely replaced. That was for legal reasons, but it's still not unheard of.

They could always recycle it. Maybe make it a pin-up somewhere. Or maybe even save it for next February.

at the rate things are getting released, I almost feel like they dont even have enough money to commission a new cover just because it no longer fits the month. unless they do another Sega variant lmao

To be fair about the releases, the weather might be a problem. Winter hits the East Coast pretty hard these days.

it isnt affecting any other comic companies though (at least not to a 2 month degree, some of them may have been delayed a week or 2). I'm also not sure if it's affecting the other Archie titles because I dont buy those

We've had one significant snowstorm this winter in the east coast. It's consistently 40 degrees out, this is one of the mildest winters we've had in decades.

This is just ridiculous. I still haven't got Sonic 279 or Sonic Universe 82... the December issues. In February. What upsets me is they haven't made a public announcement and I do think they owe us an explanation. This is unprecedented and I've subbed for over 20 years so I can say that with confidence.

I'd be less upset with it if they'd stay on schedule and put 3 issues into the mail at the same time. Surely they must be completed. If this is all financial issues keeping them from paying the printing press or something it might be time to cancel more titles.

It will be interesting what the next set of solicits look like.

And now we might see "the winter public transport theory" in action. It would be pretty much like our buses during first big snowings, first bus is so late that when it comes, the second one is right on it's tail. Sometimes the second might even come before the first. Sadly comics doesn't seem to work in that way, it would be pretty hilarious if they published the next issues before these.
