    More popular title like the New Mutants is still sold out fairly quickly though. Moon Knight is a lesser famous character. That Cates Marvel Cosmic Universe Omni is just priced absurdly, and most of the material is already collected in OHC or treasury edition.
    I agree MK is less famous but I believe his Epic Collections, or at least the first one, went OOP and the price jumped sky high. Plus there's news about the MK Disney+ show. And then I know the Cates collection has its detractors, but he's a very popular writer right now and that will probably be the only opportunity to get Silver Surfer: Black in oversized hardcover (even though the paperback treasury edition is a larger format - I'm surprised they didn't do a special treasury sized HC for collectors). Plus I'm only really surprised about the DM editions still being in stock. Although based on the number of omnibuses that are getting DM editions (and sometime multiple DM editions), maybe Marvel is increasing print runs for those as well.

    If they have increased their print run then it's still not enough, at least not so that international customers can get a copy. I had preordered Excalibur and New Mutants with Amazon on day one. Like many books recently Amazon just hasn't bothered to fulfil the preorders, selling through their entire stock on the Amazon US site it seems. Its incredibly unfair to have ordered before others who then get the book simply because they live in the US. Did anyone from the UK experience similar or did you get your copies? Has anyone got recommendations of alternatives to Amazon in the UK? I am trying Forbidden Planet for future orders, don't know if they'll be any better.

    Fellow Amazon UK pre-orderer here. No sign of Excalibur yet and they have shifted the date again to Jan 19th. Let's see. Uncanny X-men 1 finally came into stock just before Christmas after months of waiting.

    I think Amazon UK use the UK book distributor (Turnaround) to obtain their stock and they have never had it in either. It's listed as reprinting there which is slightly worrying.

    You can't order from Turnaround directly but the largest UK book wholesaler - Gardners - does run a retail operation at hive.co.uk with some fairly hefty discounts. It's worth keeping an eye out to see if it comes into stock there. I've spotted some titles in stock there for weeks before Amazon finally ships my pre-orders.

    So far I have managed to get most of what I'd ordered, even through placing late orders with other sites at higher prices. I'm not hopeful for Excalibur and New Mutants and my order of Absolute Swamp Thing has gone completely. I've complained to Amazon numerous times but they honestly don't give a rats ass. Why would they, its not like they need the custom? I think they outsource all of their complaints to India so out of sight out of mind I'd imagine. Their customer services is completely inept unless its something simple like a return and they just stopped replying to my emails after a while. That's one way of dealing with it I guess lol.

    Thank you for the recommendation of Hive. I had never heard of them but will have a look.
