See, Christmas falls on a Tuesday this year, and Diamond isn’t going to ship out products on Monday, December 24. Some items may be included in the prior week’s shipment that should go on sale on Wednesday, December 26. This is similar to what happened with Blackest Night #6 in 2009. A bunch of retailers ended up selling that one early, because a lot of people suck, and can’t wait. There’s no word on what companies will be selling what products for sale that Wednesday, so we’ll see. Diamond will be shipping product on Friday December 28 for sale on Wednesday January 2, 2013.
Now, since we won’t have much for you in terms of comics that week, iFanboy would like to offer you some suggestions to fill your comic-less time that week. Perhaps you’d be interested in taking up any of the following activities.
Remember, with no comics out there, be careful. It’s a big world.
UPDATE: DC Comics will be shipping three comics — Aquaman #15, Justice League #15, and Before Watchmen: Nite Owl #4 — to retailers a week early so they can sell them on December 26, should they see fit. Those issues are regularly scheduled to go on sale the following week.
