Asbury Park Press Delivered Damaged Sunday Comics

My father has called and complained numerous times in the past over delivery problems with the paper. In the past it was due to the paper being thrown in the driveway rather than placed in the box. He has changed our subscription from daily to weekend only and have canceled before in his frustration with your service.
Today's delivery has taken the cake though. I'm not one who would attribute to maliciousness something that could be an accident but I don't see how the condition of the comics section would be an accident.
I understand that paper can tear but today the comics section had a thumb size hole torn in it through the fold.
I can understand somehow a finger might make it through one sheet of paper but this was through all the pages, cleanly and nothing was hanging off. I don't see how that could be an accident.
If the comics was damaged when they went to put it in our edition they should have set it aside and asked for a replacement copy. If they accidently tore it they should have taped it together.
Because of the damage it is impossible to fully enjoy Grand Avenue, Hi & Lois, Hagar the Horrible and Beakman & Jax
I want a replacement copy of the Sunday Comics delivered to my door by Tuesday.
