Image, as of late: At, retailers Don Alsafi and Steve Tafuni chime in on the discussion of the lateness of Image comics:

"Any other company, which is this late with a series has its orders canceled and re-solicited. Whether it's an action enacted by the publisher itself, or a decree from Diamond Comics, it's the responsible move that speaks to respect for the retailers and the hard work that maintaining an establishment in the current marketplace requires. How is any retailer supposed to know what sales will be like on a given title 14 months in the future?"
