Diamond is notoriously bad at what it does and because it's not a monopoly* there isn't much anyone can do about it. Now the company is dragging itself kicking and screaming into the 21st century with an online ordering system, which gives them another excuse for when your order misships or is damaged: you must've selected the damaged option on the website.

Pullbox is a cloud-based software application that will allow comic shop customers a to preorder titles and products from their local comic book store. The system will also give shops the back-end to manage their pull lists.

Pullbox's features include:

  • Manage Preorders.

  • Synch with Your Participating Local Comic Shop.

  • Place Special Orders or Keep a Wishlist.

  • Enhanced Search and Ordering. 

  • Track Your Weekly Purchases.

  • Retail Functions. 

  • Comic-Suite Integration.

Pullbox is set to launch this Spring and will be free for customers, while retailers will have to pay. Diamond will show off a demo to retailers at the Diamond Retailer Summit in April.
