-=PUBLISHERS covered at present:

All publishers listed in the Comics section of Diamond Previews,
excluding limited-edition items and items that are not new comics, new
collections or graphic novels, or comics-related magazines.


This is a list of comic books that have *not* arrived in stores as of
the date above. When they *will* come out is anyone's guess.

Only new comics, hardcover and softcover graphic novels, hardcover
reprint collections, and trade paperbacks are covered. Limited

included. I will include an additional list of newly cancelled or
resolicited items when possible.

If you have any information regarding any item on the list, or if you
think an item on the list has come out, please contact me.

Even with only one distributor left, distribution to all areas is not
entirely consistent. Actual on-sale dates may vary from region to
region, or even store to store.


This list is posted every Thursday to Section 2 and Library 2 of the
CompuServe Comics and Animation Forum and Section 1 of the CompuServe
Alternative Comix Forum, and subsequently posted to the and rec.arts.comics.misc Usenet newsgroups and to
