I send the First Look materials of UNCANNY and WOLVERINE to Ben Morse. (Note: With Marko Djurdjevic's permission, I posted his sketches at http://Marveledsim.Blogspot.com).
Could we give them one of the Jock-covers as well for their cover? If not, could Jimmy Cheung come up with something?
I once again tell him that my suggestions were just to have a general direction. If he has something better in mind, he can tell me. I'm sure we'll find a way that makes everyone happy.
I ask the appropriate department if we can get a 90/10 variant cover (preferrably by Arthur Suydam) for the upcoming UNCANNY X-MEN #500.
I inform Newsarama and Comicbookresources about the Diggle/Sudzuka issue in case they want to interview one of them about it.
Are Ed Brubaker and Mike Perkins ready to start on WOLVERINE? If not (you mentioned that we can't use the Vaughan/Risso storyline, so I don't know if we need to stall a bit longer), I'd inform the marketing department to put the Brubaker on WOLVERINE in-house ad campaign on hold for a month. I'd ask David Lapham and Michael Gaydos to create another stopgap issue. If Lapham can't do it, I'll ask Brian Azzarello. If Gaydos can't do it, I'll ask Leonardo Manco.
