Expect Major Comic Book Related Delays This Week Due To Blizzard (UPDATE)

Image (2)Diamond Comic Distributors closed their home office early on Friday, as the blizzard hit the East Coast. The only major comic book distributor remains closed today, dealing with the effects of the snowstorm and current thaw flood.

We're not sure what of this week's comics have made it out, But one way of another – be even more patient this week with your retailer than usual.. Distribution has been delayed, driving conditions have been bad, and no one wants to risk what has happened before for the sake of a few comic books…

Stay safe out there.

UPDATE: Joe Cottrell of Florida's Coliseum Of Comics gets in touch to say "Can't speak for anyone but ourselves, but Diamond pushed our shipment out early enough last week that its sitting at the FedEx depot right now; so barring any unforeseen difficulties, we'll have our books on the stands this Wednesday."
