Wonderworld Comics in Detroit has been informed that they will not recieve as many copies of Age of Ultron #10, Marvel's universe-shaterring conclusion to the blockbuster super-mega-crossover event, Age of Ultron. According to Larry Poupard, Wonderworld's order will be reduced by 13% to cope with a lack of supply, though variant cover orders will not be affected. There has not yet been confirmation from other retailers or Diamond Comics Distributors, but it is likely that the issue will affect more than one store.
Of course, Marvel will probably do at least two more printings of the comic, and it will be spoiled all over the internet within moments of its release, if not sooner. However, if you enjoy reading your comics in the traditional way, instead of vicariously via internet complaining, you might want to head to your shop early next Wednesday to pick up a copy.
