    Civil War titles get delayed AGAIN???

    I mean, I'm sort of happy, because this means we'll have Civil War around longer. But 2 months more? That wait sucks. :( 

    And, All-Star Batman and Robin..? Why don't they just give up on this fucking book? I mean, currently, won't there only have been like 2 issues or so released this YEAR? Just cancel the poor sucker...it's really not that great, especially when compared to its counterpart (All-Star Superman).

    Marvel's Ultimate line worked because it was consistently released - you could tell Marvel really wanted it to do well. DC's All-Star line doesn't give me that same vibe...except for maybe A-S Superman, which is bimonthly-ish.

    So All Star Batman & Robin #5 was pushed back yet again... Could this be done on purpose so we forget what the story is about? :lol 

    This books track record isn't doing so great...

    All Star Batman & Robin #1 07/13/2005
    All Star Batman & Robin #2 09/14/2005 (2 months late)
    All Star Batman & Robin #3 12/29/2005 (3 months late - 3 issues in 2005)
    All Star Batman & Robin #4 05/17/2006 (5 months late)
    All Star Batman & Robin #5 11/29/2006 (6 months late - 2 issues in 2006)

    H'mm... is that a pattern? #6 will be 8 months late and the only one in 2007? :p

    In the "Civil War is delayed" thread, they gave a good excuse: "Good stories take time, and when read in TPB format, you'll see this come through; look at DKR, there were 3 months between issues there," etc.

    But, even in the case of A-S B&R...the story's really not THAT good. I mean, I guess DC is trying to take Ultimate-pacing a little too seriously, with lots of development in each issue counterbalanced by a slow-moving plot. It's absurd how slowly the story in that series is going, especially given that this is a series where each issue is crucial to the next (unlike the one-shot-ish A-S Superman)...I'm considering just dropping it from my list entirely, and saving myself $3 when it does, in fact, come out.

    The difference between Civil War and ASB&R is that Civil War ends up causing top selling titles to be delayed. Hell, DKR and WATCHMEN didn't affect the shipping schedule of DC's flagship books. While I don't mind that much (since I do agree that it'd work better with consistant art--Bryan Hitch's run on JLA looked jarring with the Mike S Miller fill-ins), retailers appear to be concerned about that.

    Also, I don't think the pacing is DC's doing. If you read DK2, SIN CITY, and some other 90's Miller work in the same number of pages as ASB&R, I think you'd get an incomplete experience like ASB&R.

    Supergirl's not on that list, there must be a mistake.
