Re: Decision by publishers to suspend digital new releases...

I think there are many reasons not to publish digitally first. People buy print comics. They create and attract more buzz, collectibility, eyeballs, and dollars than digital. Very, very rarely does a digital release attract so much buzz that a print monthly follow. Releasing digital before print wil...

Re: Newly promoted senior editors...

Valiant is under Fred Pierce's leadership now. He keeps saying that DMG doesn't interfere with anything, and gives them support to work independently. He is the one who knows the comic media better than anyone on the roster. I can only imagine it's him spinning the good news, and downplaying the see...

Re: Interactive Visualization - history of CGC grading for Valiant books

Greg, this is super cool! As someone who knows the publication dates of the books really well, and submitted a *SQUEE* ton of Valiant books, this looks spot on to me. The Magnus 1 book being at the top so long surprised me a bit. I submitted about 60 EW 4's in 2015, so that was fun to see the fast b...

Re: Coronavirus and Comic Stores

It's a self-serving message, but I have no doubt he knows what he's talking about and has been predicting the end of comic publishing as we know it. I was in his store not quite 2 years ago. Hardly any new comics at all. I think he started to see the end with him pulling out of comic con, albeit a b...

The only reason it is still here is we all have one! It was on clearance from Quarantine some time ago, and I think all the die Garda had an opportunity. I bought one of the gold prototypes. Not super interesting, but I love this statue.

Coronavirus and Comic Stores

Many stores are shut or shutting around the world due to quarantines and the fact that they aren't an essential business. Diamond has announced closure until further notice (presumably through April). But comic stores still have to pay rent, salaries, invoices, etc., and I don't think many are doing...

Re: VALIANT Shutting Down for a Month?

I would imagine much of Valiant's business could be remote for sure.

However, let's support your LCS. If you can drop an extra $20 or $100 or even more, I think you should do it.

That is scary. China ousted US journalists from all major newspaper outlets, and the next day stated that no new cases had come about. That might be why Trump is calling this the China Virus.
