Our first bit of new comics news has arrived:
DC COMICS will have new product sent into stores in 2 WEEKS – an on-sale date of TUESDAY 28 April.
The list is LIGHT, it’s just going to be DAPHNE BYRNE #4, THE DREAMING #20 (FINAL ISSUE!) & BATMAN GIANT #4 – but it’s a start.
I’m conflicted on the news, personally. DC has partnered with a new distribution partner and cancelled my orders with Diamond (for the first 3 weeks of April), and I’m still just letting that seep in…
BUT, I have placed my orders with the new distributor for the above-mentioned titles so that we don’t miss out.
That being said, I am NOT ordering extra copies for the stands at this time and I will ONLY be filling orders for customers who have these titles on their lists. This will be the policy moving forwards as long as we have our SHELTER IN PLACE orders. I just don’t see the point in ordering extras when I can’t have people browse.
So, if you have these titles on your list, you’re in good shape. If you don’t have these titles on your list and read them, PLEASE update your list with me as soon as you can to ensure I order a copy for you.
In related news, DIAMOND COMICS has also sent out word that they’re looking to restart new comics distribution in MID-TO-LATE MAY. So it’s very possible we will see new comics from MARVEL, IMAGE, DARK HORSE, etc within the next 4-6 WEEKS.
I want to remind everyone that we will more than likely still be observing the SHELTER IN PLACE order at that time, so we will continue with CURBSIDE PICKUPS, DELIVERIES and MAIL ORDER options. We also have been ordered by the CITY OF FREMONT to wear FACE COVERINGS while out in public, so be sure to observe the rules, PLEASE.
Be safe and stay well!
