A poster in the comments thread in the "arriving" thread mentioned a few books I didn't list -- that's because they are NOT meant on sale on 12/19. These books are to be HELD until 12/26, and any store that DOES sell them (in person, or online) is breaking Street Date and, frankly, is a giant cad.
It is important that we keep Street because it was a right we fought incredibly hard for (for over 20 years!), that increases the professionalism of stores. Seriously, to be able to have a full day to process orders, to merchandise your store, to ensure every pull is 100% accurate, to be able to have a night's sleep and take a shower between the most grueling labor of any given week and when the customers want to buy the comics -- these are vital and important things to the honest working retailers.
Someone will break street, we all know it -- either because they can't keep it in their pants, or because they're stupid and don't understand how to read, or even because they're just plain malicious -- but you the consumer can show your support of street dates by refusing to buy any of these books before 10/26, and telling a violating retailer why. You could also report the violation directly to Diamond, though I know why a lot of people would feel hinky about that.
Anyway, don't buy these books before 12/26 -- in store OR on-line! -- those of us who fought tool and nail for Street Dates will thank you.
