We checked in with Marvel to see how the company’s swap for DC Blackest Night tie-in titles (see “Big Two—It’s On!”) was going.  Marvel SVP-Sales and Circulation David Gabriel told us, “It’s actually gotten sort of overwhelming in the last couple of days and we still have two weeks left!”


Asked to quantify “overwhelming,” Gabriel was guarded.  “Let’s just say we’ll be printing more than 50 copies of the variants.”
