DC VILLAIN MONTH UPDATE!
What is it they say about the best laid plans?
So the other day DC issued comic store retailers a press release concerning their Villain Month promotion running the whole of September. It seems the demand for the 3D covers have been overwhelming and they won't have the stock to fill the orders for these titles in full. Allocations will occur and vary from store to store.
In place of the stock DC may not be able to fill, they are now offering and filling the remaining orders with a standard cover of each title that will be $2.99 US rather than $3.99 US. These standard covers will also be considered FIRST PRINTS.
At this point we are still in the dark as to how the allocations will effect our stock levels. We hope to fill the majority of orders with the 3D covers but at this stage can not guarantee it. What we will be doing over the the next couple of days is trying our best to get in contact with anyone who has put themselves down for these titles to see how they feel about getting either the 3D, standard or if the case calls for it, a mix of both covers.
As for anyone that went for our pre-paid set deal of all 52 issues for $275, obviously we are happy to offer a total refund or a swap for a pre-paid set deal for all 52 issues with the standard covers for $200.
In the end we can only offer our humblest apologies and thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter that has been taken totally out of our control.
As more information comes to hand we'll be sure to keep you informed.
Team All Star.
