No Utrom Empire #3 for me


Apparently, because Diamond has a somehow-completely-legal monopoly on the distribution of comics to direct markets, and because they shorted the stores in my area on their copies of TMNT: Utrom Empire #3, I won't be getting a copy this week.  And maybe not next week, either.

So this one's gonna be a late review.

Not to punish my local comic shops, since it ain't their fault, but this kind of bullshit from Diamond makes a compelling argument for the switch to digital.  (I'm grouchy because this is far, FAR from the first time Diamond has shorted my shop on a title I have on my box list, not even giving them enough to fill their subscribers' orders, let alone enough put on the shelves for browsers).

I can look at my shops for you, I got my copy but no idea if they had more.

@Paul

I appreciate that you're willing to look for me.

What I'll probably end up doing, though, is getting the review PDF from Adventures in Poor Taste (that review site I write for) and going with that one if they still have the file.

Thank again!
