Lying In The Gutters – 29th October 2012

Skottie Young's Wolverine in the manner of Edward Gorey…

DC and Marvel closed today, due to the oncoming storm. Diamond closed early too. As a result, this week Diamond is using UPS for almost all retailer deliveries, which may also lead to delays in the following areas;

• Delaware: All ZIP Codes
• Maryland: All ZIP Codes
• New Jersey: ZIP Codes from 08201-08270, 08302-08362, 08401-08406
• New York: ZIP Codes from 10002-10292
• Pennsylvania: ZIP Codes from 18901-19496
• Virginia: ZIP Codes from 23301-23316, 23336-23488
• Washington DC: ZIP Codes from 20001 – 20599, 56901 – 56999

If your retailer is there, give them a little slack. Also, a lot may be due to Rick's Comic City of Nashville, Tennessee, who found that a couple of teenagers had driven their car into the neighbouring store, leading to plenty of water and smoke damage., They are operating out of a temporary space in the plaza, and will have new comics this week… but not much else.

A bunch of conventions happened this weekend in London, Paris, Detroit and I'm still playing catch up. Hallowe'en coming up and I'll be giving away a stack of comics to the local kids. Rot their brains instead of their teeth, that has to be the way…
