This was supposed to be released on Sept 12. I ordered it from Amazon on the 11th and they have still yet to ship it. Delaying the estimate at least once. So did anyone actually buy or see any copies yet? Or was it delayed?

I figured that since in its original form as "The Great Superman Book" its practically your Bible you guys would know!  Wink

I saw a copy in my LCS last Thursday.

Already the pages look older than my original...that's the trouble with using that cheap pulp.  Still, it's nice to have this back in print in any form.

My experience has been that bookshops (including Amazon) get comic-book items later than comicshops get them.

I noticed that too! Unfortunately my local "comic book shop" is really a gaming shop...that happens to carry a
few monthly comic titles.

In case anyone was curious Amazon delayed there shipping estimate until November! So I canceled my order. I went to my local Walden books and they told me they have 160 copies in their warehouse... I assume for the whole US. That seemed very low to me...
Anyways I ordered it from them and they should have it later this week!
