NOTES

The first print Marvels arrive since late April, on May 27.

Bleeding Cool posted a press release from Yen Press alerting me to the fact that the publisher was releasing a great many manga on May 26. The list on Bleeding Cool didn’t match the one on the Yen Press website, so I went with the latter. Anyway, there are a great many Yen Press books listed on May 26 — catching up with what didn’t get released during the pandemic, I’d guess.

Like last week, the release list for Tuesday (from DCComics.com) doesn’t match the release list for Wednesday (Diamond). Mix and match!

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow looks like a good one this week, where the cast in trapped in various TV shows — including Star Trek the original series!

Diamond has Superman/Batman Omnibus v1 listed, but Instocktrades doesn't, and Amazon says it will arrive on July 16. I'll be curious to see if it arrives or not.

The Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed YA OGN is supposed to come out this week, according to all my PR, but neither DCComics.com nor Diamond lists it. Both DCComics and Amazon list it for June 2, which also implies a May 27 ship for comic shops (which receive books six days before Amazon). Dunno what to make of that.

Interesting.  I thought the "final" on this cover meant it was the last one.
