Marvel is working to quickly reprint the impacted quantities of each book. Quantities not received on February 3 should ship from one to two weeks of that initial ship date.



So it looks like we'll be getting MOST of these affected titles, then the balance of our orders a week later, so subscribers should be covered. Let's just hope everyone involved is OK.

My birthday is February 3rd. I thought for sure that my streak of bad luck would have ended by then, but it appears I'm getting bad news in advance so's not to get my hopes up. Happy Birthday Jared.

Oh and i'm willing to read a damaged copy of Siege #2.
Heck I'm willing to read a copy that Bill drew with crayons from the script!

Holy Crap, I just realised even after typing it, that its my birthday in a week!

Those comics are on this week's invoice... I'm pretty sure you have enough of everything to cover subscribers and also put some on the rack, so we should be good.

How old will you be?
