[edit] Cover date

Just a quick info for those who aren't familiar with the concept "cover date".

In American comics, the date on the comic cover does not say when it was published; the publication date is usually 2 to 3 months before the cover date. This is to aid shop owners who don't know a thing about comics (newspaper stands etc). It means they can throw the comic away if it hasn't been sold on the cover date.

Therefore, these issues were published in January or February - directly after the movies. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 07:44, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
