DC Comics plans to take some of its monthly series bi-weekly in 2016.
CBR has confirmed Bleeding Cool‘s report that the publisher plans to double-up on several of its regular series, releasing two issues per month.
Marvel Comics has been releasing specific series on an accelerated schedule for several years now, with flagship titles like “Uncanny X-Men,” “The Avengers” and more regularly seeing two issues released in a single month for a total of 18 issues released per year. While the specific series involved in the bi-weekly release initiative have not yet been announced, if the publisher follows Marvel’s lead, fans of DC’s biggest tiles will likely see their pull lists increase when the new scheduling takes effect.
While the publisher has a history with accelerated release schedules, it’s only done so with special, self-contained titles, such as the currently running “Batman and Robin Eternal,” or last year’s “Batman Eternal.” In the past, line-wide events such as “52” or “Futures End” were also released on a weekly schedule.
