Sorry late to reply to this but I don't think Avatar has any logistic issues, the comic came out exactly when they said it would. It's just that they didn't need a kickstarter, it was coming out anyway, it was pretty much already solicited in Previews so it was just a way to raise extra money for an existing product.
As for their location, I don't think it really matters, one of the biggest UK magazine publishers that export around the world are based in Ludlow, a small town on the Welsh border that barely anyone has heard of. In fact now everything is done electronically I think it makes more sense, probably if they made me head of Marvel the first thing I'd do is move it to Ohio to save costs.
Edit: Sorry I know what you mean now, on getting the Kickstarter orders out faster, yeah that is a slip up.
