Batman #23.1/Joker #1Hey everyone! DC Comics has announced that every comic book shop nationwide will experience shortages on the special DC Villains Month 3D Motion Cover issues. Unfortunately, this means that TFAW may not receive all of the issues we ordered for our customers.

We’re hopeful that we’ll be able to fulfill most of our pre-orders, but wanted to make sure you’re aware of the potential for an issue with your order as soon as possible.

Here’s Our Plan:

  • We’ll be filling pre-orders on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • When we run out of special 3D Motion Cover issues, we’ll fill remaining orders with the Villains Month Standard Edition issues. These editions, which feature the same interiors, are considered first printings, but sport a standard cover.
  • Those pre-orders that ship with the Standard Edition issues will receive the comic at a price of $2.39 ($2.99 cover price, less TFAW’s 20% pre-order discount).

We understand that this may be an inconvenience for some customers. We also understand that some customers may not want the 3D Motion Cover Editions.

If you wish to cancel your Villains Month pre-order or change your order to receive the Standard Edition Villains Month Issues, please email customer service and indicate your preference in the email.

Remember that the pre-order price for the Standard Edition Villains Month issues is just $2.39 each, rather than the $3.19 pre-order price for the 3D Motion Cover issues.

We sincerely apologize in advance for any troubles and inconvenience this may cause, and appreciate your understanding and continued business.

    Where do subscribers fall under the first come first serve basis? The orders for subscriptions aren’t locked in straight away like single orders, do we automatically get kicked to the back of the list?

    I am hoping that we get notifued if our order will be affected since I am only interested in the 3D covers.
