Delayed Items for the Week of October 29, 2010

These items are going to be showing up later than expected.


Previews Issue 256 Recommendations!

Chobits Omnibus Vol. 2

by Miles “OKPank” Perzewski

Every month comes a time that I like to flip though the pages of the newest Previews and figure out what to I’d like to order. I love coming across new items I’ve not even heard of yet and maybe catching a glance with a picture if included. If you need something new or would you like a good list of recommendations that I believe all could enjoy, then look no further for my picks of the month. And remember, ordering through Westfield saves you money off each item, making it so you can splurge on that decedent Grilled Salmon with Lemon Dill Sauce at that fancy restaurant near you!


Too Much Cool Stuff – Not Enough $$$ – October ‘09

Blackest Night: The Flash

by KC Carlson

We’re entering into that time of year where the pickings are slim for exciting new products. Most all of the cool new stuff for year-end holiday sales has already been solicited in the last couple of months. Long-standing sales wisdom says that people don’t buy for themselves during December, and nobody buys anything in January (and maybe February) since most folks overspent the holidays and are scrambling to pay off those bills. So the conventional wisdom for publishers is not to release anything too exciting. This is not just true for comics, but for most of pop culture. You’d be hard pressed to find many blockbuster CDs or novels or new movies (except for Christmas Day releases). New TV virtually disappears for much of December and early January, giving way to holiday programming – old and new – and end-of-season Bowl Games. I personally think the conventional wisdom is crazy – it’s actually the perfect time to sneak something cool out there when it doesn’t get buried by a dozen different similar things!

So let’s see what we can find this month…
