Newsarama reports that Diamond communicated the following to retailors; despite what DC said it looks they didn’t cancel all existing orders for their comics by retailors.
We appreciate your patience as we work with our longtime partner, DC Comics, on details following their recent announcement regarding their upcoming slate of weekly periodicals We have confirmed that the orders you placed with Diamond Comic Distributors for upcoming products are still in our system and will be fulfilled when we resume the distribution of new, weekly products.
We will offer all DC Comics products that are offered to the Direct Market through our usual solicitation, FOC, and reorder processes.
DC is still a PREMIER Diamond Publisher and I cannot comment on the specific language in our contracts.
The plot thickens.
