Cover-date
COVER DATE refers to the date displayed on the covers of periodical publications such as magazines and comic books . This is not necessarily the true date of publication (the ON-SALE DATE or RELEASE DATE). For some publications, the cover date may not be found on the cover , but rather on an inside jacket or on an interior page. MAGAZINESIn the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, the standard practice is to display on magazine covers a date which is some weeks or months in the future from the publishing or release date. There are two reasons for this discrepancy: first, to allow magazines to continue appearing "current" to consumers even after they have been on sale for some time (since not all magazines will be sold immediately), and second, to inform newsstands when an unsold magazine can be removed from the stands and returned to the publisher or be destroyed (in this case, the cover date is also the PULL DATE)
