Hmmm.... it appears I'll have to recheck all those release dates (all of which were taken from the Penguin Random House website, which distributes ACP trade collections to the booksellers' market).

I see already that (at least for comic shop customers) THE COMPLETE COSMO THE MERRY MARTIAN TP is due on June 13, rather than the date given on Penguin Random's website (I wouldn't think the difference in release dates would vary more than 2 or 3 days at most between comic shops and book retailers). Maybe that one title is a fluke, I don't know. When I get some time, I'll recheck the others against Diamond Comics' scheduled release dates.

I just pre-ordered all those "Archie Comics Presents..." TPs (well, up through LIFE WITH ARCHIE, which is as far ahead as Diamond Comics solicitations go so far) and Vol 4 of ARCHIE'S BIG BOOK. But that's the direct market comic shop ordering system. Meanwhile, the book trade obviously gets solicitations (which for typical trade collections is 3 to 4 months in advance of shipping dates in the direct market) far in advance of comic shops, so they are dangling products before our eyes that won't actually appear until January or February of 2019, seven or eight months from now. Presuming all human life on this planet isn't extinguished by a large asteroid collision in the the intervening time.

Bumping this thread because I updated the original post with comic shop release dates (scroll back to top of page).
