Supply Chain Issues Hit #1 Comic Publisher

DC Comics, the #2 direct market publisher, blinked back in August, announcing delays on dozens of titles and allocations on some books (see "DC Hits Supply Chain Wall").
Before this change, comic retailers have been able to change their orders until 23 days before release. The lengthened lead time takes effect with comic titles going on sale in November. That means that next Monday, October 4, will be the Final Order Cutoff deadline for two weeks of Marvels.
