Distribution problems in UK for BadIdea, any problems elsewhere?

Everything else comic-related that's not VALIANT-related.

First why I haven't been to local comic shop in awhile ( I have had a knee replacement).
Second ~ just to point out, I was told the diamond UK distributes BadIdea in the UK ~ so don't know if they are not getting the books, or they are not providing the preordered books.

I rock up to my local comic shop, they don't want to sell me odinns eye issues 2,3,4 as issues 1 and 5 haven't arrived. Which kindda makes sense as I will not get to read the complete series, but also maybe they are trying to make Diamond Uk fill its order.

Due to pretty much every BadIdea comic arriving late, I am now the only BadIdea customer at the store.
Now the store has to reapply to be a destination store to get more books, and I get the feeling they cannot be bothered, as the books don't arrive ( still waiting for Eniac 2 ~ had to buy elsewhere), and if they do, they arrive late ~ and now its only me as a single customer.

Is this a problem just in the Uk, or other countries outside USA having the same problems with badidea distribution?
I wish their was a Spinal Tap comic, and I had a copy CGC graded at 11.

I am having same issue in the UK. Had Odinn's Eye #2-5 delivered to me couple of weeks ago - still waiting on #1.

Apart from Odinn's Eye #1, the only released BI comics on my subscription that are outstanding is Pyrate Queen #4 and Monster Kill Squad #3.

Really do hope that the LCS I am using for BI comics does reapply to be a destination store.

Yea i'm a big Valiant fan, so love to check out what's happening on here :thumb:

I use Forbidden Planets website. Its a slow process getting Bad Idea comics from them (still waiting on Odinn's Eye #1), but i eventually get them.

Am looking forward to see what's going to happen with Bad Idea now they have released all their books. Really hope they stay around, as i've been enjoying what they've been putting out.
