This week's shipment of comic books and other products from Diamond Comic Distributors to retailers has been delayed in some areas. The North American distributor cites "inclement weather" over the weekend near its distribution center in Olive Branch, Mississippi as the cause. It is unknown how many retailers are affected by this weather delay.
While most retailers receive their shipments on Tuesdays, this week's shipment is expected by Diamond to arrive on Wednesday. Given the time needed by stores to pick-up, process and stock the items, they may not be available for those shopping on Wednesday.
Readers are encouraged to contact their local store to find out when this week's books will go on sale.
