More on the double-size debut of ‘Advent’


Diamond Scoop covers the ‘Advent Rising’ comic’s shift to a double-sized first issue with some commentary from your’s truly and also from Mr. Bill Jemas.

Says Bill, “Based on the advice of retailers (and our account people at Diamond), 360 had already had a retailer promotion in place, but we felt that we wanted to do something special for readers in the first issue – so we gave them the second issue for free.”

(Note: I erroneously told Scoop there was 57 story pages. It’s actually 53 story pages. 57 content pages. Math is hard.)
