NOTE: The "Day" field must correspond to the nearest Wednesday to the actual release date. Typically, comics are released on Wednesdays, but in those rare cases that they aren't, the nearest Wednesday represents the whole week, and not not the specific day on which it was released. If a comic was released on a day other than wednesday, simply leave an editor's comment next to the Day field to indicate as much.
