    Phoenix Comics had it, but wouldn't sell it, as they feared being sued.
    Another Dimension said they would have it next week, though they probably had it in stock.

    I really hoped to get it today. Hard to imagine Lucasfilm getting all pissy at a local store for selling it early.

    Star Wars: Visionaries Dilemma
    Posted by Curto on March 16, 2005:

    It's not even scheduled to be released until April 2nd, but comic book retailers have been given strict orders NOT to sell the Star Wars: Visionaries trade paperback, which features original tales from the artists who helped create Revenge of the Sith.


    Due to a processing error, Dark Horse's STAR WARS: VISIONARIES TP (JAN050045V) will be shipped to stores on March 16, despite originally being scheduled for later shipping.

    This title falls under Lucasfilm's embargo date for materials related to Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith. As a result, it may not be sold or displayed until Saturday, April 2. Retailers MUST hold the Visionaries trade until that date, per 20th Century Fox & Lucasfilm's licensing agreement.

    Diamond and Dark Horse regret the inconvenience, but remind retailers that STAR WARS: VISIONARIES TP may NOT be sold or displayed until the embargo is lifted on Saturday, April 2. Until then, retailers are asked to keep the books off of the sales floor and made entirely unavailable to consumers.

    Diamond and Dark Horse regret any confusion caused by this error. Retailers with further questions about this announcement should contact their Diamond Customer Service Representative.
