Comic Book Fast Look | Our Message

Good Morning Comic Book Fans,

As you probably know by now, starting April 1, 2020, Diamond Distribution will temporarily discontinue shipping products to comics book retailers. This clearly has an affect everyone in the comic book business, as we exist to let you all know what comics, books, and other items are available each week in comic book shops.

We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you all apprised. Right now, multiple publishers have stated that some graphic novels and trade paperbacks will be available, in any comics book stores that are still open for business, through book distributors. DC Comics has also announced they are looking into ways of getting single issue comic books into stores without using Diamond Distribution.

What can you do in the meantime? 

Let your local retailer know you are here for them. Contact them and see if they are still open, continue to pre-order titles, and use this an opportunity to purchase collections or back issues from them. Use our Extended Forecasts to order and pre-order titles, since, as of now, publishers still intend to release the comics that are not currently able to get to stores.

There will be a Wednesday, someday soon, when comics and comic book shops will be back.
