Did you try sending him an email too? Evidently that email button works.

All right I got to get back to work.


Yeah, I tried his AIM which said he was offline and sent him an e-mail.

We'll give him an hour to make a backup pick, if not I'll need to do a poll.

Stupid Diamond. :x

Thanks for the quick reply. Choker will still be the primary pick, but it'll be good to have a backup selection just in case. I'm giving you 10 of my jumps tomorrow since you're getting shafted here.

I'm looking at poll options now. I think I'll go with...

ADVENTURE COMICS WITH BLACK LANTERN SUPERBOY #7
BATGIRL #7
HUMAN TARGET #1 (OF 6)
REBELS #13
HIT-MONKEY #1
TAILS OF PET AVENGERS #1
ULTIMATE COMICS SPIDER-MAN #7
X-MEN PIXIE STRIKES BACK #1 (OF 4)
ANCHOR #5
MUPPET KING ARTHUR #1

I'm either voting for REBELS or Pet Avengers, but knowing the OH it'll probably be the monkey book.

The poll will be up in a few minutes.

Why no DMZ #50? Please don't say you and Lee read it in trade again.

My LCS sends me a "This is what comes in this week" list via e-mail and Choker is on it. Hmm

I generate a hotlist as well from my invoice and according to my invoice I should have gotten Choker this week, but it ain't there and Diamond tells me ain't no one getting it.

Power outage:

The first Monday of the month is normally when the Top 300 lists are released — but against the great snowstorm, not even comics sales charts can stand. Power is out at the Diamond home offices in Timonium, Md., this morning, affecting all websites (including the Comics Shop Locator service), e-mail, and phone traffic, according to Cheryl Sleboda, Diamond's customer service manager for technical support. Sleboda writes on the Comic Book Industry Alliance forum that crews are working on the problem, and that Diamond hopes to reopen this afternoon.

The Memphis area, which has Diamond's huge Olive Branch, Miss., warehouse, has also seen several inches of snow this weekend, though no shipping problems have been reported. Winter 2010 has spared few corners of the comics universe!

Update: Dan Manser, Diamond's director of marketing, says Diamond's home office will not reopen today but will try again tomorrow (Tuesday the 9th). He also notes to the CBIA that the snow in Olive Branch may affect re-ships, some drop points, and customers serviced out of that location. The snow has not affected the drop points in Baltimore, although he notes that more is predicted.


That's why Diamond's info is off.

everything else that was on our invoice was in the box. I have physically touched all the books on Amlah's list.
