Get Fantastic Four #587 One Day Early

Marvel are allowing any comic book store that receives their comics on the Tuesday to stick the Fantastic Four issue straight on the shelves. They claim this is because of the expected media coverage (and probably the media spoiling the story).

The message Marvel sent their sellers:

FANTASTIC FOUR #587 EARLY RELEASE NOTICEDue to the expected mass media attention scheduled for Tuesday, January 25th, Marvel is allowing retailers who have received copies of Fantastic Four #587 to make it available that day. No other new Marvel titles with an on-sale of 1/26/11 may be made available that day.

This unexpected opportunity is a result of both the new earlier shipping schedule and worldwide mass media coverage. Marvel cannot guarantee the secured press placement will hit on 1/25 (as other breaking news may bump it), though if it does, retailers who have received the issue may sell their copies. For retailers who don’t receive early shipments, or have customers calling in advance of the shipment arrival, Marvel encourages them to take down customer information and inform them when copies do arrive.

In this issue a member of the Fantastic Four is going to die (if anyone spoils it for me there will be blood) and the issue is getting shipped in a black poly bag,  which was done for the famous Death of Superman issue back in the 90’s. As a big Fantastic Four fan and a Hickman fan I can’t wait to get my hands on this issue!

Check back next week for a review of the issue by me!
