Re: Bad Idea Promises to Change the Comic Book Industry Status Quo

This is more a change in distabution than comics. If they can start an independent distribution network, that's where another alternative to diamond is. If the limited, comic becomes popular and secondary market drives up price.. More people will acknowledge what they are doing. Think long term not ...

Re: Catalyst Prime (New CB Universe)

I thought, without researching or asking ~ that 7 days would be released one per week ~ that would have been a great event.
Yes I actually thought it would be one issue per week.
Stretching it over such a long time, is abit of a shame.

All titles stopping for such a long event is annoying as well.

Re: BAD IDEA

if it is one copy per person, its a way to get noticed. The wider comic book reader only hears about comics that they don't collect via hype on the market. If something is low print run and hard to find ~ word very quickly. hopefully leading to further sales and additional print runs etc. On the wid...

Re: BAD IDEA

So maybe it is a cooperative comic as I mentioned in an earlier post. Always wondered why this was not done before, maybe it has? Hope this expands beyond a single comic, looking forward to it. Valiant, even with its previous publishing, was a hard sell to a lot of people. Dino and Co put a lot of e...

Re: Catalyst Prime (New CB Universe)

Anyone else reading 7 days? I am really enjoying it, the art and storyline match very well. Interesting twist with Superb (hope when returns to normal numbering of books, the story is not forgotten ~ and we move away from the last few pages of superb 13?) Didn't like the main villain, firstly looked...

Re: Imperium + LADOTH slabs!

Imperium 1 was released on my birthday. Valiant said they would ship a gold ~ but never arrived. If you get a gold Imperium that you don't want, I would be interested ######################### My mistake. I thought it came out Feb 11th, I checked it says Feb 4th. Was it delayed a week? No wonder the...

Re: Visitor #1 broke one of shooters main rules for pro comi

Jim Shepherd ( editor of Australian frew/ phantom) said to me that a Phantom cover can only come from an image that is between panels of the content of the comic, or an adaptation of a panel in the comic. Obviously frew publications of phantom covers show 'the Phantom' and only once did not have hi...

Re: Visitor #1 broke one of shooters main rules for pro comi

Haven't read Visitor 1 yet. But I will guess, Xo was presented in Armor in XO 1 on the cover, however not in the comic book in Armor (from memory). Thus giving away part of a future issues story (that had not been printed). I have xo trade in bedroom, but wife still asleep, pretty sure he doesn't ge...

Re: Putting together a DEFIANT Comics fanzine

No one is asking for your bank details,mothers maiden name, or the first street you lived on.
Someone just promoting a comic company they enjoy, and sharing with us.
Maybe a little respect or support, rather than negative comments.

Re: BAD IDEA

my badidea, is a badidea.
Ignore post above.

Silly to print a newspaper.
Still I think it has something to do with distribution and retailers.
Unless it is a co operative partnership with the comic.

Dribbling rubbish now. Sorry

Re: BAD IDEA

Their a a few independent publishers in uk, that print as a newspaper. Not newspaper, or none glossy paper in comic book form. But actually print it as a newspaper. They come out rarely, sold really cheap (£2) new, and a lot of content. Have a few of these floating around. Always good to get a lot o...

Re: Putting together a DEFIANT Comics fanzine

Is this just a one of mag?
Or multiple magazines over a few years.?

No saying that in a rude way, I am not suggesting it is taking to long.
Just asking, thanks for all time an effort ~ looking forward to reading it.
