According to Marvel solicitations, they were pushed back to January 2nd, most likely due to New Year's.

Yet they'll be lots of drinking, drugs and sex that day, so that kind of makes up for it. ;)

Are they going to be closed on Christmas Eve day, or something super awesome?

No, they're open. But the weekly email was like: "Comics are listed as shipping on Christmas Eve, but they may come early!"

He also thinks they're shipping on New Year's Eve.

My shop says comics on Wed 12/24 and simply says that they will NOT be in on Wed Dec 31. Assuming they're closed on Jan 1 I guess that means new releases will be out Friday?

I dunno... I plan on being drunk pretty much from Christmas through Jan 2 or so.

Ummm...isn't your Christmas and New Year's the same as ours?

I'd be very surprised if this worked like Memorial day, labor day, or Thanksgiving.

Interesting....I guess I'll violate my LCS on New Year's Eve day then.
