So I guess I spoke too soon...
I woke this morning (way too early) to a lot of emails from readers saying that Amazon is either delaying or cancelling their orders for these new printings all of a sudden. Volume 2 was supposed to go live there today, but I don't see it listed and vol 1, which was Image's #1 new release graphic novel for the past few weeks, now lists a reseller instead.
I have no idea what the problem is or why there is such a delay here. I thought we had sorted it out. So I've got everyone at Image on it this morning, calling the distributor and Amazon to try to fix this issue. I'm not sure how fast it will be fixed or if they're simply out of stock on the books because they underestimated demand. So please be patient until I get an answer.
Comic shops can order the new printings from Diamond, I've been told, with these order numbers:
CRIMINAL DLX ED HC VOL 01 (MR) MAY178198
CRIMINAL DLX ED HC VOL 02 (MR) MAY178199
CRIMINAL DLX ED HC VOL 03 (MR) AUG200074
So if you are getting tired of waiting, please call your local comic shop, or find one you like that does mail-order (almost all of them do now).
This is immensely frustrating to me, as these books have been out of print for nearly a decade, but they are sitting at the distributor and should be getting to your hands soon, I swear.
In the meantime, there are no issues with any of our other books, and FRIEND OF THE DEVIL
is still set for release next week everywhere. So at least there's that. I'll let you know as soon as the CRIMINAL DELUXE
issue is resolved, but know that we are trying to get it sorted.
