DC Comics has informed retailers that orders for Green Lantern: Alliance, the DC original graphic novel continuing the story of Tai Pham, have been cancelled as the book is late. It has now been rescheduled for sale on the 18th of October and will be re-solicited in an upcoming edition of DC Connect.
Equally, The Phantom Stranger Omnibus and the Who's Who Omnibus Vol. 2 have also had their orders cancelled and the books will be resolicited in an upcoming edition of DC Connect. The Phantom Stranger Omnibus is now rescheduled for the 1st of November, and the Who's Who Omnibus Vol. 2 is now rescheduled for the 6th of September.
The industry is currently experiencing paper shortage, printer allocation and print run allocation, which is especially affecting bigger books such as these. And as we have pointed out, DC Comics is far from immune to this.
Green Lantern: Alliance Paperback by Minh Le, Andie Tong
Tai Pham struggles with balancing school, his work in the family business, his friendships, and his new Green Lantern responsibilities. But Kid Flash arrives on the scene to become the super-hero partner Tai just might need. It's only been a few months since Green Lantern Tai Pham inherited his ring from his ba and defeated his nemesis, Xander Griffin. But Tai knows their last battle was only the beginning—and even though no one believes him, Tai is determined to prove that Xander is up to his old tricks again. When a string of fires start popping up around Coast City, Tai finds himself stretched thin as he struggles to keep up with school, training, working at the store, and following Xander's trail. That is, until a new hero, known as Kid Flash, shows up on the scene with an offer to help. Can the heroes find the arsonist before it's too late?
