I was able to get a copy of vol. 8 a day before its release because I purchased
it from a comics shop. The clerk brought up the point that they can get videos
sooner than Suncoast can because Suncoast gets all their videos shipped to
a central location and they distribute it to their individual stores from there.
Makes sense. Like the N64 game "Diddy Kong Racing" isn't supposed to be
out until 11/24, but small mom & pop game shops are selling them already,
and Blockbuster is renting it.
