    due out two weeks ago, and indeed on the diamond shipping list, The prequel comic has not shown up for a second week in a row now. my local retailer was charged for the books last week, but the amount credited back to him this week, anyone know whats up? Is IDW starting to suffer delays like DW did or am I just being paranoid?

    It might be a shipping issue.

    The issue that came out last week (supposed to have came out today) had a misprint. The comic shop I talked to said they had to get rid of them.

    Should be out next week!

    Yeah, but you shouldn't have been able to - if any shops slipped through the cracks and happened to get any copies, they weren't supposed to sell 'em.

    I think the black & white variant cover was due out today, but last week's release is still due for next week.

    There's a misprint where a previous page's text is printed on another page instead of whatever was supposed to be there.

    My comic shop let 'em slip past, too, so I have a 'ZOMG teh rare' copy.

    I bought the comics last week and the B&W versions today. After rereading the new ones today I noticed the error. Page 2 was printed again onto page 5.

    Page 5 was suppose to talk about how Optimus and Megatron used to rule together but that Megatron eventually turned evil.

    One more time...

    The Transformers: Prime Directive Movie Prequel #1 (of 4) was originally due out February 21st. However, IDW Publishing noticed a printing error (a previous pages text was reprinted onto page 5) late and asked that all retailers that did receive issue #1 on the 21st to destroy them.

    This printing error only affected the coloured editions of issue #1. The black and white versions were fine but IDW asked that retailers hold off on selling those until new copies of the coloured editions arrived on March 7th.

    Some retailers, that did receive issue #1, chose not to do as IDW requested or did not receive the note above the printing error and sold the coloured editions anyway.

    To make up for the delay, IDW is publishing both issue #1 and #2 in March. As stated, issue #1 will be out March 7th and issue #2 will arrive March 21st. Issue #3 and #4 are still on track for April and May respectively.

    If you bought the issue with the error, and you only want a second copy for the corrected text, go buy TF:Escalation #4. It has a preview of the live movie comic with the correct text pannels where the original has errors.
