Comic News: No New Comics Today

Diamond Skip Week Advisory States: "No New Product Shipments Week of DECEMBER 28
In consideration of UPS’ holiday delivery schedule, and in consultation with retailers and publishers, Diamond will not be shipping product to customers the week of December 28.
“Most of our customers receive their shipments via 1-Day, 2-Day, or 3-Day UPS, with 3-Day shipments tendered to UPS on Friday,” explained Diamond Vice President of Operations Cindy Fournier. “With Christmas and New Year’s falling on Friday this year, we would not be able to tender product for 3-Day retailers until Monday, December 28. But because there will be no UPS service on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day, product which could reach 1-Day and 2-Day retailers on December 30, would not reach our 3-Day UPS customers until January 4. In light of this, and based on conversations with our customers and suppliers, we agreed that a skip week was the fairest, most prudent way to proceed.”

As I'm sure you all know, there will be no comic book releases for this week.  Which means...I gotta find other stuff to write about!
Now for those of you lucky sons o' guns who have a store near them participating in the "Green Christmas Program," they will be happily enjoying Blackest Night #6.  The rest of us have to wait it out another week.  Let's just hope these guy don't give anything away in their online reviews.
But of course, it will be nice not to have to go to the comic book store today and have a week off to catch up on other reading that always gets put on hold for my comics.  But it's still frustrating all the same.  Stupid USPS.
