What the hell, DC??

Just opened an E-mail from DC and saw this notice.

**********

ORDERS CANCELLED FOR SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 1 TP

All orders for SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 1 TP have been
cancelled. This material will be resolicited at a later date in a different format.

**********
This is the 2nd time they've done this.!!!!!
The first time, I thought it may have been due to low initial orders.
BUT, I just finished confirming my orders for this book, and it was my highest ordered Showcase volume yet. Easily 2-3 times more than any Showcase to date.
WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM DC, SELL US THE DAMN BOOK ALREADY.
I guess maybe the orders were TOO high and they've decided to take advantage of the fans and put it together in a more expensive package.
Sorry for the rant, but it bugs me that a publisher finally found something I can sell, and then they yank it out from under me.

Heh, thanks.
I know you've been waiting for this book for over a year now.

Exactly! Instead of 500+ pages for $17.99, we'll get about 180 pages for $20.00.
You could get the original issues for less than that by haunting the buck sections of various shops.
The high orders I was placing were based on the exceptional value of the B&W volumes.
I'll still sell a few, and they will look nicer in colour..but ultimately, less people will be able to afford it.
