Oops – a Few DC Comics Through Diamond Will Be Delayed Further

Diamond Comic Distributors shut their doors to new comic book product at the end of March. DC Comics looked to their two biggest comic store customers, DCBS and Midtown Comics to create two new distributors to ship DC Comics titles across the USA – and a little bit of Canada. It all got a little crazy. But next week was meant to be the return of Diamond Comic Distributors in force to those comic stores able to be open. Marvel Comics were still holding fire until the week after, but the DC titles that had already shipped to stores were meant to be coming in next week with a few more to boot.

However, DC Comics has now informed comic book retailers that those who are ordering from Diamond will be getting their comic books even later than with UCS Comic Distributors and Lunar Distribution. In a letter they state;

"Due to a transportation issue from our printer to Diamond, the following books scheduled for May 19 on-sale were delayed in arrival at Diamond's warehouse. Fulfillment of orders from Diamond for these titles will be delayed one week. They will arrive in your stores with books scheduled for release May 26"

  • Batman & the Outsiders #12
  • DC Super Stars #17 Facsimile Edition  
  • Hawkman #23
  • House of Whispers #20
  • Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity #4
  • The Flash #753
  • The Green Lantern Season Two #3
  • Wonder Woman #755
  • Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #3 (third printing)
  • Flash Giant #4

These appear to be the newly printed comics rather than those that have been sitting at Diamond for some time. Which means the DC Comics titles that are actually coming through for next week through Diamond will be,
