Marvel Scheduling Fun

Courtesy of Diamond:

In order to better support retailers in their quest to translate interest in X-Men Origins: Wolverine into sales for this title, Marvel will release Wolverine #73 (MAR092604D, $2.99) before Wolverine #72 (FEB092578D, $2.99), the continuation of Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s “Old Man Logan” storyline. Issue #73 will arrive on May 13, while issue #72 will go on sale May 20.

This is done because issue #73 from writers Jason Aaron & Daniel Way and artists Adam Kubert & Tommy Lee Edwards features the start of two two-part stories focusing on the character, thus providing the perfect jumping on point for new readers the Wolverine film could help produce. Both stories will be concluded in the pages of Wolverine #74 (MAR092605D, $2.99), scheduled to land in stores on May 27.

The “Old Man Logan” storyline continuing in May 20’s Wolverine #72 will now conclude in a Giant Size Old Man Logan special, which was announced at this year's New York ComicCon.

So not only are we getting THREE issues of the regular Wolverine title in May (plus all the other related books) they aren't even coming out in order? Fantastic!
