COMIC UPDATE

Some of you have reported hearing conflicting things about the War Cry release date from your local book and comics stores. It appears that with the holiday backlog, some copies did not make it out of the distribution center in time, resulting in delays. Hopefully, everything will sort itself out promptly, and this glitch won’t get in the way of any holiday gifting plans! Apologies for any inconvenience.
