JB - just do all the issues in advance, as you normally do, but when it comes time to release them, release them 6-7 months apart instead of every 30 days.

Then, combine that with Mr. Mackie's idea that every issue be labeled with #1. In fact, make every issue of Aftermath a One-Shot Special. Then name them with titles that would reflect the issue number.
"Next Men: Aftermath" One Shot - February 6, 2013*
"Aftermath: Second Coming" One Shot - May 1, 2013*
"Aftermath: Third Time's the Charm" One Shot - November 13, 2013*
"Aftermath: Four's a Crowd" One Shot - August 6, 2014*
"Aftermath: Five Card Stud" One Shot - October 22, 2014*
It seems to work for other artists. You'll also start to get rave reviews for all the detail you're putting into your artwork, and people will say it's worth the wait because you obviously took a long time to do it. Except for issue five. They'll say that looks a little rushed because you're trying to get back on track to a bi-monthly schedule, even though your book has never been solicited or promoted as being bi-monthly, but as monthly all along.
