DC Tells Diamond Retailers That Comics Will Be Late

DC Comics has issued the following notices to comic book retailers of late comics coming from Diamond Comic Distributors. They appear to be a little salty about it. They state "DC has made every effort to support Diamond's return to operations and to ensure that our products are received at their warehouses on time for their scheduled on-sale dates. Unfortunately, once DC product is received by our distributors for a specific in-store date, they are responsible for how and when they are delivered to comics shops. If you experience shipping delays, we encourage you to work with your distributor to resolve these issues. We have communicated with your distributor regarding these problems. Our expectation is that they will address these problems in a timely manner with you." Here's the list of delayed DC titles, and by how much.

  • The Flash #754 variant: Delayed to an on-sale date of June 2 for all retailers.
  • Aquaman #59 main cover: Delayed to an on-sale date of June 2 for all retailers. If any retailers receive this main cover edition periodical prior to, please hold them and do not release before June 2nd.
  • Aquaman #59 variant cover: All copies of this issue have been delivered to all distributors for an on sale date of May 26.

Two weeks ago, Lunar Distribution messaged retailers to tell them that the variant version of The Flash #754 now has an in-store date of 2nd June. But that was it. UCS haven't said a thing. So wonder who will be getting what and when? You can keep an eye on all the New Distribution Wars stories with this link.
