Alright took the plunge in a BIG way because of the 25% off code. Ordered 500 12" and 25 16". My database is severely out of date so I don't know exactly how many I need but this should hopefully cover what I have and a good amount of upcoming additions.

Just stumbled across a code to get 25% off this week so I may take the plunge as there'd be no better time. For those interested the code is "webluv"

So that WW-12U fits up to standard oversized trim books? Is the thickness of the book ever a factor (thinking of Infinite Crisis or the upcoming Invisibles)? Also, pros and cons of lined vs unlined?

<t>Whether we think that releasing them around a movie helps them sell or not, I'd say it's not a mere theory but a fact, especially now. X-Men Omnibus Vol 2, Fall of the Mutants OHC, and X-Men by Claremont and Lee Vol 1 all came out before or shortly after X-Men First Class. Captain America Lives, ...

Two of the most recent archives (Batman Vol 8 and LOSH Vol 13) have less than 100 copies available for retailers to order through Diamond so I'd suggest getting them ASAP or regret it later.

I have the same issue sliding the pages back in for both portfolios.  I wish the pocket was just a tiny bit looser but I guess it's good that the pages fit tightly so they don't wiggle around and get dinged up.

I'm pretty sure the non-comic book e-tailers (Amazon, B&N, etc.) work out different deals with different distributors. Remember the great Amazon "sale" a few years ago. It was only Marvel books not DC because Amazon gets DC books from a distributor other than Diamond unless I'm mistaken.

<t>This is based on the books that were sold to retailers in July; I'm not intending to talk down to anyone or impugn anyone's intelligence but of course retailers can and do order more copies after the book is released if, as it is in most cases, there are more copies available from Diamond.

All three of those DMs are still available at Diamond.<br/> <br/> Also, do we know for sure that the DM and regular covers are added up for this ...
