Analyzing Wonder Woman's Lateness: Set Your Bets!
In now understanding that writer Allan Heinberg will be on the book until issue 6, it seems safe to say that his portion of the run will not be over before Christmas, and may indeed be pushing Spring 2007. With author Jodi Picoult set to take over at issue 7, what does this mean for the future of the book in terms of sales and in terms of shipping dates?
I understand that Heinberg is very busy, and artist Terry Dodson has mentioned that Heinberg is also a perfectionist. This leads me to believe that while Dodson is keeping pace on the art chores, it is editorial and writer corrections that are causing the stall.
I say ENOUGH ALREADY. Quit with the perfectionism and tinkering, and put the product in the readers hands. Please. See, I said please!!
My bets run like this:
Issue 3: okay for October 27
Issue 4: week of December 7-10
Issue 5: The end of January
Issue 5: First week of March
We shall see how close I run on this. If I am wrong and the book comes out sooner, I will be contrite and pleased.
What do you think?
