Hi Everyone,

FYI – The solicitation process on our end ideally needs some updates before we pick them up this time, which would heavily reduce the amount of manual alterations Suz and I (mainly Suz) have to do before running subs. (I wrote up a master bug about it for Travis to look at.)

What I don’t know at present is if he’s going to be able to do that in time for this round or leave it another month.

So, there could be a delay getting them in, which would lead to a quicker turnaround for them going into subs. Or they might go in soon, which would lead to a slower turnaround for them going into subs. (I’m rooting for the former.)

More details as events warrant.

Not sure if this would have to be added manually, but noticed there’s a Daredevil #10.1 in the FEB solicitations and I know you guys have had issues with this silly decimal issues in the past.

MAARRRVEELLLL!!!!

Thanks, KamuiX. I actually sub to Marvel Previews just to watch for those, but an early heads-up is cool, I’ll make a note to fix it when I’m fixing solicitation things.

Yeah, that Venom one going to the .4 was the worst :P

And I’m subbing to it, so I’m part of the problem! ;)

Black Panther #529 is the finale for that title.

I guess Daredevil is free to take back his numbering whenever he wants, now.

Update – So, FEB solicits have been added in, but we’re only partway through the process.

Still to come – covers to be added, Suz and I (mainly Suz) to spend lots of time going over things and fixing problems, subs to be processed.

Most of my posts during the takeover were just rapid-fire barely on topic. ;)

Hey, the covers showed up, sweet!

That means we’re soon onto the (currently) longest stage of the process, me and Suz cleaning up stuff before subs are processed.

Update.

I’ve looked at and cleaned up the ‘all incentive’ problems that result from the odd small publisher doing weird releases that tend to just be irritating from a system perspective.

My normal ‘monthly fixes’ that need to be done are mostly done.

Suz is looking over GNs still, I think.

In any event, initial orders are due in Thursday, so the subs will get processed within the next couple days.

Update:

All my standard monthly fixes are done, including new ones, like the fact that Action Comics has a Combo Pack variant that should go in it’s own title, like so…

FEB sub orders were processed last Thursday, in time for initial ordering, and everything is looking good.

So, time to unsticky this and get ready to put up a MAR solicit sticky thread.
