Apologies if I am duping another thread, but I could not find a thread that's addressed this topic. Let's say that there is a 4 page preview running through the various DC titles that month. Should the appearances of characters, teams, etc in that preview be attached to that issue? For instance, there is a 4 page sneak preview of Teen Titans #88 that ran in a bunch of titles for DC in December 2010. Part of me sees that as misleading, since it is just a preview in multiple books. But the first cited appearances of many characters (including the New Teen Titans) is actually from a preview appearance. What is our policy on this?

I guess it'd just be easier if you could credit what kind of appearances characters had (which has been suggested in the past) in the way you can creators.
That would be pretty cool!

I saw that the most recent issue of Uncanny X-Men has the Avengers Academy cast listed as an appearance.  However, I don't know whether it's simply a preview or a new AA item in there... I don't want to buy Uncanny X-Men just to find out (to know whether to keep or remove it)

Not sure on that one, on the cover it says bonus book and then the third page of the story says "Permanent Record Part 1" & "Special Bonus Book: Avengers Academy #1" and after 22 pages of story it says "To Be Continued, Every Month in Avengers Academy". 22 pages is pretty long for a preview so it probably is original content but we will probably just have to wait until Avengers Academy #1 comes out to compare :D

@xerox-kitty:  whoops never mind Avengers Academy #1 came out last year :P so it is a reprint of the full Avengers Academy #1 that is published in Uncanny X-Men #534, no new material.
