The story has to go from writer to penciler to inker to colorist to letterer to proofer to printer and then be run, printed, stapled, packaged, and shipped.
Unless they are doing a rush job, that can't happen in 3 months.
And maybe this is the problem.... if everything in DC is being done as a rush job, it would explain the sloppiness of what is going on at the company.
Because despite all this DC comics still sell.
It's actually fair enough. We all know comics are struggling. They're struggling massively. But DC know that there is fans who are going to buy the issues no matter what. Who gives a fuck about making a class creative team who will want paying well, when they can slap any old fucker on Batman #49593 and it'll sell?
These comics will sell incredibly well. Evidently. I've been saying this for years, the talent of the industry is slipping away to do their own thing, the dregs will work on superhero characters. It'll still sell, why would DC bother putting out top quality material? It's better to put out shite and watch the internet still buy it.
