Every week your Local Comic Book shop gets in the weekly assortment of comics, trades, posters, action figures, and other goodies from Diamond. Now some of these goodies sell our fast from your LCBS, so Tuesday and Wednesday LCBS retailers get on the phone (more often the computer) and let Diamond know they need more. Or sometimes they go to unpack those Diamond boxes and find items missing, or too damaged to sell (it does happen), retailers have to let Diamond know. However, the phrase no retailer likes to hear when they go to report those shortages, damages, or reorders is: “Sorry that item is on back order”, which means there are no more copies to send out from the Diamond warehouse.
So for this second week of November what are some of the items that went to back order? And what are some that surprising didn’t? (Note that the back order list is from the end of the day Wednesday and obviously as time goes on other comics will be on back order soon as retailers place orders.)
No announcements out on Wednesday for second prints, but one will be coming as Fallen Angel #1 sells out.
Though as with the previous Dawn of X releases, copies of the Bagley Every Mutant Ever Variant (SEP190772)
and the Young Gun Variant (SEP190770) for Fallen Angel #1 were still in stock.
The other big release that it seemed should go to second print and be on back order was Far Sector #1 with 5G speculation high, but there are still copies of all three covers in stock so retailers reorder copies if you need them, or want a good speculator book for the back issues.
Other then Fallen Angels #1, and Folklords #1 which sold out a few weeks back,
nothing else went to back order. Batman’s Grave #2 still in stock;
Black Cat Annual #1 with the great J. Scott Campbell cover, still in stock;
Buffy Angel Hellmouth #2, still in stock;
Morbius #1, with extra copies sent out, plenty in stock;
Punisher Soviet #1 still in stock;
and X-Men #2 still in stock, though that may change.
Oh, and all the DC Acetate covers are still in stock.
So if you are your LCBS and want Fallen Angel #1 main cover grab it, because Diamond won’t be sending anymore 1st prints no matter how much your local retailer asks.
