Nightwing #70 Allocated – the Latest From UCS and Lunar Comics

UCS Comic Distributors and Lunar Distribution are two new comic book distributors set up by DCBS and Midtown Comics respectively. Their raison d'etre is to distribute DC Comics titles in the wake of Diamond Comic Distributors still being shutdown to new comic books for the next month. The first week of shipping books is meant to be this week/weekend, planned to be on sale on Tuesday, April 28th. It's a limited selection intended to stress test the system. It comes in the middle of the Nu-Distributor Wars with DC Comics saying that all orders for new DC Comics through Diamond are cancelled. Even though Diamond says they are not and they will be distributing them in Mid-May. Which means that retailers may be getting the same comic books from different sources, from different interest and everyone debating over which is the first printing and which is the second printing. Or in the case of Nightwing #70, which is the second and which is the third.
