10489842_593773474077416_3512155022183579531_n[1]

It would seem that next week’ [8/13/2014] will have about 99% of the comics that were shorted from this week’ [8/6/2014] and then the other 1% will show up over the next two weeks.

 

Why Not This Week?:

Advisory #1
Dear Diamond Customer:

As posted on the Retailer Services Website, Diamond performed a necessary upgrade to the logistics software that manages its hub operations in the Olive Branch Distribution Center on July 26 and 27.

Unfortunately, some issues have arisen that did not present themselves during our extensive testing. These issues have impacted the processing of Direct Ship Reorders placed after July 25 and Reship Reorders that would have been picked and packed this week for delivery with product on sale August 13.

Please be advised that Reship Reorders will be delayed by at least one week, and Direct Ship Reorders will be delayed by one or more days.

While Diamond’s Logistics and IT staffs are working alongside specialists from the company’s software consultants to address the issues, it has not yet been determined when reorder shipping will return to its normal schedule. Diamond Daily and the website will provide updates as more information becomes available.

Diamond apologizes for the inconvenience, and thanks you for your patience as we work to resolve these issues. If you have additional questions regarding this advisory, please contact your Diamond Retailer Services Representative. Thank you.

Advisory #2
Dear Diamond Customer:

Diamond Comic Distributors’ Olive Branch Distribution Center and IT staffs, along with our software consultants, are making good progress in addressing issues that came to light following a planned software and hardware upgrade at the facility. We first advised you of these issues via email on July 29.

“Despite the challenges we encountered due to issues that didn’t arise in numerous tests, most Direct Ship Reorders will be shipped this week,” says Diamond’s Olive Branch Executive Director Shawn Hamrick. “As we move into the week of August 4, every effort will be made to ship Direct Ship Reorders by the end of the day if they are placed before the appropriate cutoff time.

“I should remind our customers that this is never guaranteed,” Hamrick said, “and it may take an additional day or more as we work through the backlog created during this disruption.

“Everyone here at the Distribution Center deeply appreciates the patience of our customers,” Hamrick added, “as we do all that we can to get back on our normal schedules.”

Today’ shipment was not 100%.  In other words, it was missing a couple of boxes.  I have already contacted Diamond Comics and will hear back as soon as I do.   What that means is there will still be a new comic book day, but not all of the comics will be available tomorrow 8/6/2014.  Just as soon as I hear more, I will post updates:

website / facebook / twitter and the google plus pages when I get more information.

SDCC’14: Khans of Tarkir Spoiler and Announcements

KHANS[1]

New information on the next set Khans of Tarkir for Magic: The Gathering. Fresh news and Khans of Tarkir spoilers from San Diego!

 

MARVEL ANNOUNCES THE NEW CAPTAIN AMERICA!

Sam Wilson, Formerly The Falcon, is the New Captain America in All-New Captain America #1

All_New_Captain_America_Cover

New York, NY – July 17th, 2014 – Marvel is excited to announce that beginning in November 2014, the title of Captain America will be passed to Sam Wilson, The Falcon, in the pages of All-New Captain America #1 by series writer Rick Remender (Captain America, Uncanny Avengers) and series artist Stuart Immonen (All-New X-Men).

Announced on “The Colbert Report” by Joe Quesada, “Sam Wilson…The Falcon, is the new Captain America.”

Addressing how Sam Wilson will follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, Steve Rogers, Remender says, “Sam wants to lead by example. To help people see their own selfishness and to turn it around. To build better communities, to never forget the little guy.”  Remender continues, “Sam follows his heart and his belief in what the American dream means and how it belongs to everyone.”

The question remains: what happens with the original Captain America, Steve Rogers? Executive Editor Tom Brevoort says, “Steve’s spirit is as willing as ever, but his body is no longer up to the task of being Captain America. So he’ll employ his skills as the new Cap’s remote strategic advisor, running Cap’s missions from his headquarters in Avengers Mansion and providing Sam with technical support and field information from a distance. He’ll also tutor Sam in how to throw the shield, a skill that’s deceptively difficult for the new Cap to master. So Steve will continue to be a vital part of the series moving ahead.”
