DC Waits One Week Before FOC To Announce Artist Change, Despite Knowing For Two Weeks Prior

Some shady stuff happening here.

During Emerald City Comic Con, Jock revealed that he was the new artist on All Star Batman #9, replacing Afua Richardson, who was nursing a dislocated shoulder.

 

Below is Richardson's original cover for All Star Batman #9.

DC issued an updated solicitation yesterday in their retailer newsletter, which Newsarama mistook for news.

ALL STAR BATMAN #9
Written by SCOTT SNYDER • Art and cover by JOCK • Variant cover by CHRIS BURNHAM • Variant cover by FRANCESCO FRANCAVILLA
"Ends of the Earth" finale! It all comes down to this. After months of searching, Batman has found the mastermind behind the blight sweeping the planet, and must face off against one of his most dangerous villains in a battle of wills for the fate of the Earth.
On sale APRIL 12 • 40 pg, FC, $4.99 US • RATED T

 

DC waited until five days before FOC on the book, to update retailers, despite knowing for at least two weeks.

We'd like to assume some ulterior motive on DC's part to hamper retailer order adjustment, but we don't think they're genuinely capable of pulling off such a feat, with management like this.
