At least I hope there won't be. We'll just have to wait for the fine

work for one and we're keeping close watch on it). A
lot of color printing occurs in Singapore and Thailand
and much of that is going to be delayed (art and color
rpg books are near the top of this list). This is also
going to hurt anything going to or from Australia.

imported toys are late, and we can't get _anything_ from WizKids,
which is really bad. We've sold out of the newest HeroClix stuff and
can't restock it. Oh yes, and for some reason, we can't get sleeves
for comics and posters. :-/
My fear was that west coast publishers wouldn't get their books to
Diamond or other distributors on time.
You folks are certainly the people that I should be keeping
up-to-date on these things, so here goes.
Girl Genius issue Eight was solicited through Diamond for October,
yes. But lucky for us, we have until the end of November to get it
out. And since I am still waiting for the final colors (our fault,
not the colorists), I suspect that it will hit the stands sometime in
November. Sorry about that. I could be wrong, but I doubt it. The
reprint of Buck Godot, zap gun for hire, is probably languishing
somewhere because of this, tho.
