Cmci book stores will be getting a bunch of books for December 19th that they aren't allowed to sell.
Instead they have to be kept back for the subsequent week, December 26th, as Diamond Comic Distributors won't be working over Christmas.
Here's the list from the Premier publishers – a reduced list, sure, but an opportunity to try out something new maybe?
- BONE PARISH #5
- BONE PARISH TP VOL 01 DISCOVER NOW EDITION
- HELLBOY AND BPRD 1956 #2 (OF 5)
- BATMAN BEYOND TP VOL 04 TARGET BATMAN
- GREEN ARROW WAR OF THE CLANS ESSENTIAL EDITION TP
- NIGHTWING TP VOL 07 THE BLEEDING EDGE
- SUPERMAN REBIRTH DLX COLL HC BOOK 03
- MARS ATTACKS #3

- DIE DIE DIE #6 (MR)
- MAN-EATERS #4
- FANTASTIC FOUR #5
- SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #1
- UNCANNY X-MEN #7
- X-FORCE #1
You might also note that DC Comics won't have any single issues available that day… while Marvel is launching X-Force, Superior Spider-Man and the big Fantastic Four Wedding event…
