Source: Sandman Overture Slips #2 Further Into March
You know what, I can’t even do this. I had a whole rant ready about not soliciting a limited series until it is complete. Asking whether the industry has learned nothing from Kevin Smith’s Marvel minis, Image United, or any of the other plethora of late books. But, fuck it.
Sandman Overture is going to be even later than we thought. I know, I know; “I don’t care if it’s late as long as it’s good.” Fuck that. This was solicited as a bi-monthly book, not a quarterly, and as consumers we need to stop supporting this kind of crap. You think this is good for comic book stores? It’s not; once it’s clear that a book won’t come out when expected readers loose and sales plummet. Don’t believe me, ask your LCS, I did.
But, it’s Gaiman and Williams, so fanboys will excuse anything they (don’t) do just so they can appear “creator friendly” as they fellate their favorite creators on Twitter and Facebook. Never mind that this is the kind of crap that hurts the industry. Never mind that “they” know they can do this to you and you won’t care because “OMG! SANDMAN!!!!”
I guess it would have been too difficult to make a Sandman OGN.
Sandman Overture is now scheduled to be in stores March 26th, 2014, but don’t hold your breath.
