If you were looking forward to receiving your shipment of IDW titles next week, you may have to wait a bit long, as the publisher has announced delivery delays that could extend for the next couple of weeks.
This is the announcement the company sent to us earlier today:
Due to the ongoing problems at West coast ports, our normal shipping procedures have been completely interrupted, causing unpredictable delays. Regrettably, this has resulted in all our books planned for release on 2/18 to be delayed. We’ve looked at every possible scenario to prevent this, but the situation is completely beyond our control. We are taking steps to improve this for the immediate future, but the books and products that are currently on the water cannot be re-directed. We will be updating our weekly releases and keeping you informed as the situation works toward a resolution. We understand this is not an ideal situation, and apologize for any inconvenience this causes, and look forward to things getting back to normal in ensuing weeks.
Diamond Comic Distributors has already updated their release list, so we don’t even have a rundown of the books that were scheduled to be in stores next week. Hopefully this issue will be resolved soon.
