I'm very tempted to order this from my local comic store. The orders go out in the upcoming week and since it's a small store they ask for any special orders of books that catch my eye.

This article fails to mention that you can only pick these titles up at speciality comic stores apparently, which massively sucks becuase I live in the UK so there's no way I'll be getting hold of them.

EDIT: Or maybe there is, who knows. Whatever though, if it's not online I can't get it.

Actually, the article kinda does. Diamond is THE distributor for American comic book shops. (Believe me, many shops wish there was more than this monopoly, but..)

Pretty much you need to find someone or some store in America to ship to you.

Actually, off the top of my head, Mile High Comics ships internationally. You can also look around for others that do.

and here's their shipping rates

Though again, you might want to shop around.

I'm not too bothered about the extra stories, really! I simply cannot wait for Black Jack vol. 1 in September though! :]

So I added myself to the waiting list at my local store, and if I don't make it, at least I got a free promotional pen which looks like a syringe. Anime catgrin

Well, if you're in Cali, it's Meltdown Comics. This kind of thing might vary, though.
