Batwoman #0 - Uh Oh

Postby CononachAgain » Mon Jun 11, 2012 9:40 pm

So DC are releasing #0 issues of all their titles in September. Problem is, we already have an entry for Batwoman #0, a prologue issue that shipped in 2010 before the relaunch (with a cover date of 2011). I'd suggest moving the original Batwoman #0 to it's own title with a Begin and End Date of January 2011, and change the Begin Date of the current series to November 2011. And since both books will have a 2011 start date, the title of the entry with the earlier date should be Batwoman [I], and the current series should be retitled Batwoman [II] (a la Superboy [I] and Superboy [II]).

Sounds reasonable. Another option could be to have both zero issues under the same title, and put the year of release in brackets. See the Hellblazer Annuals for example:
http://www.comicbookdb.com/title.php?ID=1329

That might not be as clear using all numbers though..
0 (2012)
0 (2010)

Regardless, we should act when we have the issue in hand. DC could do something "crazy" in the indicia and number it #00 or Xero.

Ah, I hadn't seen the Hellblazer solution.

So here's a list of reasons I could come up with why there should be two Batwoman titles and why there shouldn't:

Should:
    •Two #0s in one title could be confusing
    •The relaunch clearly canceled all ongoing titles and relaunched a number of them with new #1s. So following that pattern, the pre-relaunch volume of Batwoman was cancelled, even though it only reached issue #0, and was relaunched, along with every other title, as a new volume with a new #1
Shouldn't:
    •Two "Batwoman (2011)" titles could be confusing
    •The current volume has the same initial creative team as the original #0
    •The first few issues were solicited -- pre-relaunch -- with the same plot and covers as what appeared when finally published post-relaunch
    •The pre-relaunch #0 was reprinted, along with the first five post-relaunch issues, in a Batwoman volume 1 collection

Also, I checked to see if the two volumes had the same ISSN number, but the pre-relaunch #0 didn't have a number, and the post-relaunch series does. This doesn't necessarily suggest they're different volumes, but I didn't think it should go in either column.

Anyway, I agree that there's no need to change anything before the issue is published, but I thought I might as well bring it up.

I renumbered last year's #0 to: 0 [2011]

Willing to go with the other option previously discussed if people find it too confusing having two issue zeros in the same title.

Do we want a "0 [2012]"?

Also, new issue:

Cool. I made the 0 issue, but wasn't sure if we wanted to keep the same format as the 2011 one.
