Tim Leong says on the Comic Foundry blog that they’ve reached a compromise with Diamond, which will carry the magazine in September at a lower cover price:
All has been quiet on the magazine front — until now. I’m happy to report that Comic Foundry and Diamond have struck a compromise! Diamond Comics will distribute the magazine in September, and we will drop our cover price on the first issue from $6.25 to $5.98. Thems the terms.
Diamond was very gracious to reconsider the book and meet us half way on this. I hold no ill will against them, and let’s hope they feel the same way. I feel confident though, that despite the… unusual start we can continue on to forge a good business relationship.
We were considering taking the book to a publisher, but we’re going to stick it out on our own for the first issue. Maybe we’ll reconsider after this issue, maybe not. All I know is it’s going to be a fun ride.
