Well, once again UPS and Diamond have struck and my local retailer did not get all their books. What a colossal pain in the butt! My retailer was so mad she could barely speak and I don't blame her. She was standing there with four of her customers staring at her, just waiting for their stuff.
It seems that UPS is the problem, and that it was a pretty universal one up here in Washington State. Supposedly the customer service person from Diamond is going to try and ship through a different carrier next week to see what happens. It is about damn time. This crap has been going on for a long time with nothing done about it.
This means that Jim or I will have to truck back downtown to pick up the rest of the books tomorrow or Friday. Ouch.
Otherwise, it was pretty exciting to see how many great titles were coming in. I look forward to sitting down tonight and reading 52 and 100 Bullets, two books that actually came in!
Tonight it is short and sweet once again as I use all my self control to not go on a full tilt rant about Diamond and what is wrong with the industry. Give me strength!
