TMNT HC VOL. 1 delayed?

Postby tmntspider » Fri Aug 19, 2011 2:25 am

I noticed it is not listed as coming out next week on the Previews site. Has the TMNT Vol.1 HC been delayed?

Ah, so delayed until Sept 6th? I can wait a couple more weeks I guess! :)

It's listed as September 6th on Amazon... but Amazon typically gets graphic novels, trades and hardcovers two weeks after they arrive in retail comic stores.

So likely this week or next? Excellent - excellent.

Thanks to everyone here for being so nice and helping me out with my questions and stuff.

Any chance someone from IDW can chime in?

This blurb on the main page says October for Vol. 1. I wasn't expecting it until next month with Amazon's expected date listed at Sept 6, but it appears to have indeed been delayed.

I just placed my pre-order with Amazon.com and it said: Expected delivery Sept.9-13 (cause I chose Free Shipping).

The HC is only going to cost me $12 out of pocket though so I'm ecstatic about that. Used what few Amazon Visa Reward points I had left to credit it toward this purchase. So for $12 I'm feeling good about the purchase.

That is a heck of a delay--four months later than originally solicited! I wonder if they didn't get as many orders as they were hoping for and are now waiting for more buzz/hype based on the current series. Or perhaps they're changing the content in the book...

I got the Amazon email today as well. I'm not upset at the delay as I'm backlogged on TPB as it is, got vol.1-2 of Mighty Samson Classics to read as part of that, I'm just glad it's not cancelled.

Maybe they are going to add some content?
That's possible as well.

It's weird that the last 2 TMNT articles on the IDW main page have said volume 1 is coming out in October though. Also Amazon sent out messages a few weeks ago about volume 2 being delayed to November 22nd, and they still list that as the date for volume 2. It seems like the January date is just a placeholder date on volume 1, plus those amazon e-mails are automated.

I got the same Amazon email. I've read three different time frames for release now. I wish I knew which was the real one.
