    I added two more sections this week (DCCOMICS.COM UDATE and RETURNABLE ITEMS) which I usually omit from these posting but I recently noticed that this list gets copied onto other message boards (which I don't mind - I get this from another source as well).

    I'll continue to add those sections from now on and just wanted to point out that I've been removing prices and item codes from most sections (ORDER CUT-OFF, ARRIVING IN STORES, SHIPPING CHANGES, and now RETURNABLE ITEMS). So this is an edited list from DCs actual weekly Direct Channel - hopefully I've made it more readable and easier to find the information (sorting by date instead of title, shipping changes put into groups, etc) this way.

    Just wanted to make that clear.

    Enjoy!
