We all know some of these are going to be sitting shrink-wrapped in LCS's here and there, with the retailer - let alone a consumer - being non the wiser a few months or a year from now.
I also know that you can't leave the door open on this kind of return forever, but this seems kinda slight.
DC notified retailers a few weeks ago (last week of September I believe), so retailers have had more than just a week to arrange returns. That said, I think they could still allow more time, but it's not just the week that the article implies. Maybe the headline should be changed to You Have A Week Left...
I had this on order with Barnes & Noble and was able to cancel before it was shipped. Thank goodness. I assume the entire first printing sent to mass market booksellers will remain in the market, errors and all, forever.
I'll wait until the online retailers associated with Diamond get their second printing (i.e., corrected) books and order again.
Ok, I bought mine from Amazon. Not a seller on Amazon. Is this returnable to Amazon?
Amazon is really good about returns all-around and have handled similar recalls for even such high-ticket items as complete series DVD sets. If they don't know about this one (and I figure that they do because it's Amazon and not a seller), you'll be able to set up a return with them.
If you need a suggestion for a just-in-case, have two or three different comics news websites' articles about the circumstances of the return (ie: this article *and* the corresponding article discussing the return terms at two other leading comics news websites) open when you contact them through some interwebby method so that you can send the links to Amazon. Although, given that the book is DC, the seller is Amazon and the cover price is high, they'll probably know about it.
