Two possibilities: Amazon's wrong again, or Diamond gets stuff out to the comics shops before it gets stuff out to the book trade.
Diamond gets IDW trades out to comic shops a week or two before Amazon starts shipping them.
That (and the fact that Amazon doesn't pack comic trades adequately, and they consistently arrive with cracked backs and wrinkled covers) is why I'm getting the IDW trades from my friendly neighborhood comics dealer now. It costs a few dollars more, but it's worth it to avoid the aggravation of damaged copies!
