I, for one am, glad.  I HATE Diamond.  Comics were always dinged up.  Plus how they treated the stores is atrocious.  Penguin has been around forever.  I also think this will mean that Penguin will be able to distribute outside of LCSs boosting sales and product lines.

Yeah, most of the stores I've bern to talk a lot about late/incorrect shipments.

I'm happy to see the Diamond monopoly go down, it's been choking the industry for far too long.  I think it's going to be a great thing for the industry and will hopefully create new distribution channels to get comics into the hands of many more readers
