Its not their fault theyre different, like novelization, they simply use ideas that were meant to be in the film originally but changed or taken out for one reason or another
Yep, they have to use rough cuts of the film and the screenplay to get it out on time. But they're quite close. Usually closer than the novelisations.

Speaking of which - I loved the comic adaptations for '89 and Returns as a kid. They were very, very well done and captured the visual style of the films with some good art.

I must track my copies down - I think they're in storage somewhere.
