Action Comics #1 To Go On Sale In The UK Fifteen Hours Before USA

Action Comics #1 To Go On Sale In The UK Fifteen Hours Before USAThis week a number of DC stores had a midnight opening to sell Justice League #1 and Flashpoint #5. The UK missed out as stores only got their comics on the day of sale, because of the Bank Holiday on Monday.

So they are doing it next week instead. UK retailers will be allowed to sell the first batch of New 52 comics from midnight on Tuesday. Not only will this be ten hours before they usually go on sale, but it will be fifteen hours before they go on sale in New York.

The titles will be:

Action Comics #1

Animal Man #1

Batgirl #1

Batwing #1

Detective Comics #1

Green Arrow #1

Hawk And Dove #1

Justice League International #1

Men Of War #1

OMAC #1

Static Shock #1

Stormwatch #1

Swamp Thing #1

I know that Orbital Comics in London will be participating. I doubt they'll be alone…

And yes that does appear to be Lady Godiva from Flashpoint appearing on the cover to JLI now. What happened to the original I wonder?

UPDATE: OK Comics in Leeds is signed up too.

Yes, yes, and Chaos City in St Albans, and the Big Bang in Dublin.
