BILL WILLINGHAM TO ANSWER READERS' "BURNING QUESTIONS" IN FABLES #59

This March, writer Bill Willingham will answer readers' "Burning Questions" about FABLES in issue #59 of the hit Vertigo series. Readers can submit their questions about the series at dccomics.com/sites/fables.

"It's rare that any magazine would ever let the readers call the shots for an issue," says Willingham. "Some have advised us that we're insane for trying this, but they don't know what we know: FABLES readers are the creme de la creme, the elite of all funnybook fans. In short, you're smarter than the average bear. More to the point, you have questions that demand answers, and none of us here in Fabletown are foolhardy enough to risk ignoring your needs." The issue will feature a series of short stories answering a selection of the questions, illustrated by several artists. FABLES #59 will be solicited in the January Previews (Volume XVII #1) to arrive in stores in March.

And don't forget, the original hardcover graphic novel FABLES: 1001 NIGHTS OF SNOWFALL (JUL060245) is available for advance reorder and is scheduled to arrive in stores on October 18.

Between All-Star Batman, WildCATs, Heroes and even the design for that DCU MMORPG, Jim Lee must be given an extremely large lead time for these books so he doesn't play catch up like this. Can't DC solicit stuff when they're done?

Shocking, ASB&RtBW has been "canceled". Which will happen first, ASB&RtBW #6 or Alex Ross's Justice#12?

I've pretty much written off ASB&R ... frankly DC should be embarrassed with all these delays ... this is not just a few chronic books .. this is an epidemic

Absolute New Frontier .. WTF ... how could they not know weeks ago that this would be delayed .. this has to be a prodcution issue .. can't imagine ten days before its supposed to be in stories is the first we know of this

I was going to try Wildcats #1, but all these delays have put me off the idea. If they cant even get the first issue out on time, what hope do future issues have.

I'd bet Production issues.

They may want to avoid another deal like with Watchmen, where the books were shipped so quickly, that there were issues with glue that had dripped into the slipcases.

With something like Absolute New Frontier, I don't mind, I'd rather they take their time and get it right because for that kind of cash there ain't no mulligans!

Firstly DragonKing I appreciate the chance to see new shipping changes for DC titles I will have to wait a little longer for.

Secondly. Allright this is the fourth update in a row (maybe more) that has had the same thing written regarding the new shipping dates for GL #14 and 15.

GREEN LANTERN #14 10/25/06 09/27/06
GREEN LANTERN #15 11/29/06 10/25/06

Which might give some the impression (I myself am catching on now ) that with each update it has been pushed back further, which it hasn't. Granted it is possibe maybe even likely that I am the only one who was falling for this.

To illustrate my point on a larger scale this list was copied from three updates ago/two weeks. And every one of these books appeared exactly the same as they are each listed in todays update.

INFINITE CRISIS HC 10/11/06 09/20/06
BIRDS OF PREY: THE BATTLE WITHIN TP 10/18/06 10/11/06
THE CREEPER #3 10/18/06 10/04/06

The only not seen before shipping changes from todays update are these five books. Thats only five out of 21 books listed

OMAC #4 10/04/06 10/04/06
ION #7 10/25/06 10/18/06
SHOWCASE PRESENTS: CHALLENGERS OF THE UNKNOWN VOL. 1 TP 10/11/06 09/27/06
SUPERMAN/BATMAN #30 10/25/06 09/13/06
ABSOLUTE DC: THE NEW FRONTIER HC 11/08/06 10/04/06

To me reading these updates has become like experiencing some sort of dark dejavu that I can't help but watch . Oh well I will have to get used to it.

And two of those are reprint books, meaning there are probably just production issues somewhere down the line.

Now, if DC can keep everything straight between now and the end of november, what will we have to complain about every week?

That one's easy: Justice #12. Even though it's bi-monthly it still ships on schedule.
