Due to a serious trucking accident, the shipment of Marvel Comics and IDW Publishing comic books with an in-store date of 24th May 2023 that was en route to Diamond’s Plattsburgh Distribution Centre in the United States was damaged or destroyed.
Diamond UK’s Marvel Comics & IDW Publishing comics books come through this same route, and this means that all UK shipments have also been impacted. There will be no new Marvel Comics or IDW Publishing comic books released in the UK this week.
All parties are also working to resolve the situation, but we have no further information at this time.
Our thoughts go out to all of the drivers, passengers and family members affecting by this accident in the US.
CITY BOY #1 (OF 6)
(W) Greg Pak (A) Minkyu Jung (CA) Minkyu Jung – Sunny Gho
First seen in Wildstorm 30th Anniversary Special and Lazarus Planet: Legends Reborn, there’s a new Korean hero named… City Boy! Or at least, that’s the best translation of what the cities call him.
City Boy, a.k.a. Cameron Kim, is just trying to make a living by using his powers of being able to speak to cities to find lost and hidden goods to pawn, and it’s only just enough to get by. And those abilities mean he hears everything everywhere all the time, including each city’s histories and the truths behind them. (It’s very loud in his head and something he has to live with.)
As his powers get stronger, the cities start forming animal avatars from scraps in order to physically travel alongside him on his adventures. Of course, Gotham is a rat avatar made of city scraps, but what about Metropolis, Blüdhaven, Amnesty Bay, or even Themyscira? And not all cities are so kind…
GREEN ARROW #2 (OF 6)
(W) Joshua Williamson (A/CA) Sean Izaakse
Green Arrow is alive… but where the hell is he?!
That’s what Roy Harper and Black Canary want to know, and their search takes them into the bowels of Belle Reve.
But they’d better hurry – the stranded Oliver Queen and another lost member of the Green Arrow family are both being hunted by a brand-new villain called… Troublemaker.
