    The only news that I have from Diamond (which I consider the official source of comic book release news) is that Bad Guys Vol 1 TPB is slated to come out Aug 5th.

    < source: http://www.diamondcomics.com/shipping/upcomingreleases.txt >

    No news on Clan Building Vol 2, and it's not on this list:

    http://www.diamondcomics.com/shipping/newreleases.txt

    But I have a feeling it's still coming out because SLG, the publisher, said July and SLG fedex'ed 100 copies of Vol 2 to Comic Con just a few days ago, so my hopes are high. I'm calling my comic book supplier and see if he has any news, but I doubt it. He won't know what he has until Wednesday.

    Could you tell us what's going on with the release date for "Gargoyles - Clan Building: Volume 2"? I know if was available at SDCC and the last word was that it was going to be out in stores this month. But it seems it didn't come out this week and "Gargoyles: Bad Guys," which was supposed to come out after the other trade, is now scheduled for next week? So when can we expect to see the two "Gargoyles" trades in stores?

    We had a box of advance copies of Gargoyles Vol. 2 at Comic-Con. The ones for stores are in transit from China, where they were printed. The Bad Guys trades were printed in Canada, though, so it's going to arrive in stores first. The Gargoyles trade will probably make into stores by the end of August.

    End of August, eh? Cool. Just in time for my last big purchases.

    Also, I don't think Bad Guys is coming out this week. Neither the Diamond list nor the one at Graham Crackers said it was, and they tend to be right about that sort of thing. Except, of course, when they aren't. I don't think this is one of those times, though.

    Either way, because I don't have enough money for it, I'll most likely put it aside until next week's payday.

    Gargoyles Bad Guys Vol 1 disappeared from both of Diamond's new release and upcoming lists so only God know when it'll hit stores.


    Anyway, while I'm here, let me just drop off some pre-order information for those who may read this thread, but don't comment:

    Gargoyles: Clan Building Volume 2
    Diamond code MAY090629
    ISBN 978-1-59362-167-4.

    Gargoyles: Bad Guys Volume 1
    Diamond code JUN090673
    ISBN 978-1-59362-193-3

    From SLG newsletter:

    * * * * *

    The book all of you, okay some of you, have been waiting for is now in stock at SLGCOMIC.COM and ready to ship. Gargoyles: Clan Building Volume Two by Greg Weisman and a cast of dozens should be in your local comics store this week and at Amazon.com the week after. Those of you who cannot wait can get it directly from SLG right now.

    HEY! NO FAIR I can hear you saying. "You send me this email notice AFTER your 30% off sale ended?"

    In the spirit of fair play SLG is going to extend it's 30% off sale until Saturday August 15th. So come and get it big boy (or girl).

    Lots of other new stuff is in now too, so now is never a better time to shop SLG and stimulate our local economy.

    * * * * *

    The key word(s) from the document above: "should be". They are NOT on Diamond's shipping list for this week or next, so it's anyone's guess...

    The word in the Gargoyles forum that I post at is that some comic book stores have CLAN BUILDING VOL 2 in stores, while some do not.

    I would recommend everyone interested call their local comic shop and see if they have it.

    Yes, they are. Both of them.

    Too bad, though. Won't be able to get them right away.

    Concerning your page above, what is your source of new releases and how reliable it is? I normally check this site:

    http://www.diamondcomics.com/shipping/upcomingreleases.txt

    The reason I ask is because the following are on your list, but not Diamond's list:

    Gargoyles Bad Guys Volume 1 TPB
    Gargoyles Clan Building Volume 2 TPB

    Thank you for your time.

    - Tony


    Hi Tony -
    I base my NEW RELEASE list on the INVOICE that Diamond sends me saying 'you're getting these books and you us $21,585' each week. Both of those books are shipping next week.

    The list you are you looking at is the TENTATIVE shipping list which is probably why it doesn't include those books.

    Thanks,

    As I understand it, a store in Illinois, who usually gets the updated list on Thursday, and is fairly accurate most of the time (except when IDW happens not to ship that week).

    Got Clan Building Volume 2 last week, left Bad Guys for later pickup.

    I did look through it, though, and I have to ask this question: were the original singles (the ones that were released, anyway) in black and white?

    No, the original singles that were released (#1 - #8) were also in color.

    The Bad Guys singles were black and white on the inside as well as the trade, which I really enjoyed because of the consistency of the artist, coloring and whatnot. The main book changed artists a lot.

    It's funny because I didn't expect to enjoy Bad Guys because of it's lack of color and I turned out enjoying it the most.

    I knew that. That wasn't what I was asking.

    Yeah, it did look better than Clan Building.
