Marvel will allow retailers to sell Fantastic Four #587 on Tuesday, January 25th, probably to prevent spoilers about the MAJOR DEATH!
Marvel has decided to take extra precautions in sparing readers from spoilers about the SHOCKING DEATH that will befall one of the Fantastic Four with the conclusion of the Three storyline. The black bagged issue #587 will be allowed to be sold by retailers the day before the rest of the comics for the week are released. Diamond recently started shipping books to retailers on Tuesday, and, let's face it, as soon as a copy of this books leaves the UPS box, spoilers will be all over the net. So keep your eyes closed while surfing the web until you've made it to the store to pick up your copy!
FANTASTIC FOUR #587 EARLY RELEASE NOTICE
Due to the expected mass media attention scheduled for Tuesday, January 25th, Marvel is allowing retailers who have received copies of Fantastic Four #587 to make it available that day. No other new Marvel titles with an on-sale of 1/26/11 may be made available that day.
This unexpected opportunity is a result of both the new earlier shipping schedule and worldwide mass media coverage. Marvel cannot guarantee the secured press placement will hit on 1/25 (as other breaking news may bump it), though if it does, retailers who have received the issue may sell their copies. For retailers who don't receive early shipments, or have customers calling in advance of the shipment arrival, Marvel encourages them to take down customer information and inform them when copies do arrive.
