Comic Stores May Sell Tomorrow's Titles Today – Wednesday Warriors Become Tuesday Titans?

This news arrived a little too late for the British shops, which have all closed by now. But Diamond Comic Distributors has informed American comic book stores that they can start selling comic books planned for release tomorrow… today. Wednesday Warriors just became Tuesday Titans as New Comic Book Day shifted back a day for one week only. As comic stores are judging each day whether they can be open or not – and Forbidden Planet has announced a week of closure in New York City – this may help quite a few for this week, at least. Diamond has also suspended their secret shopper programme to ensure street date is maintained in comic book stores for the next four weeks, including the $5 weekly charge each store pays to maintain that programme. So… who is going to get their comics? Lots of stores are doing curbside pickups and local deliveries – is anyone using drones yet? It can only be a matter of time… Here's a list of some of the titles suddenly being made available, depending on your store.
