DC Comics' Flashpoint Beyond Delayed, Now Finishes Three Months Late

DC Comics has decided to make some changes to the shipping schedules, availability and ordering prices for retailers for the upcoming Flashpoint Beyond. They have told retailers that "to help ensure comic shops can meet the demand for the highly anticipated upcoming series Flashpoint Beyond, DC is offering a free approximately 50% overship of copies of Flashpoint Beyond #0 by Geoff Johns and Eduardo Risso, across the main cover, open-to-order variant cover, and 1:25 incentive cover. To help cover the shipping costs, stores will receive a freight credit of $.05 per Flashpoint Beyond #0 overship copy that they receive."

To translate, orders for Flashpoint Beyond are below what DC Comics were expected and they believe it will do better in stores than comic shops think, and so are sending a bunch of extra copies of the #0 issue to stores to try and prove a point and up subsequent issue orders. They did it recently for Aquamen after receiving very low orders for Aquamen #2.

DC Comics will also provide an additional 5% discount, on top of each store's existing discount tier, on Flashpoint Beyond #1. Every issue of Flashpoint Beyond will now also be returnable. The schedule has changed, what was a twice-monthly book will now be monthly. So what would have ended in July will now end in October.
