Default How to keep events from disrupting regular storylines

And to make a lot more money from them to boot.

Do it this way. Say in June of a particular year, you want Superman to take part in an event. The issue that's going to be printed that month will be #31.

Instead of pre-empting the regular #31, go ahead and print that one, but also print a one-off issue in June where he takes part in the event. You could maybe call it 31-E, for "event." Not only would that let your regular storyline proceed without a bump, but you'd make more money there, by publishing two issues instead of one.

Superman's regular creative team wouldn't need to produce issue 31-E. You could get someone else to do it.

Then, when you collect the event in a trade, you could make more money than you're making now from those trades by including the one-off "E" issues in the collection.

That's less disruption and more profit for you.
