DC left Diamond. What does that mean for you?

Posted by Comics Place on

This week, DC Comics announced that they're leaving Diamond, the main comic book distributor, for greener distribution pastures. We've heard a lot of people worried about how that will change their subscriptions, and wondering what kind of delays to expect for DC books. 

If you buy your comics at Comics Place, you hopefully won't see a huge change in anything. We will be ordering our DC comics from the new distributors, and other than the usual damaged and missing comics that we deal with behind the scenes every week, we don't expect this change to impact you much.

HOW CAN YOU MAKE THIS EASIER FOR US? Easy. Make sure you're subscribed to your comics early. The more confidently we can order a series because YOU have asked for it, the easier it is for us to do our whole thing. You can preorder books not already on your subscription list shop.thecomicsplace.com. If you're already subscribed to a series, assume we'll be getting everything on your list for you. To make changes to your subscriptions, you can email us at the shop or send us a Facebook message to the store account, and we'll make sure you get the comics you want.

Now to part the kimono a little bit. To give you a little peek behind the curtain. Some behind the scenes, if you will... This isn't a super positive change for most shops. It's going to cause some extra work on the ordering and receiving side of things. "Breaking up the Diamond monopoly" isn't automatically a good thing, and it's not going to be a totally smooth transition under the hood.

But don't worry about that on your end. We like solving puzzles, and with the state of the world today, we've had a lot of practice figuring out how to do new things. Ordering comics from a new company should be a cakewalk at this point.
