From the Mothership’s Talk@ boards:
Today, “The Flying Friar” graphic novel ships in the USA. Low orders, less than 1 in 10 comic shops will stock it. Probably less than 1 in 20. And then only a couple of issues. MidTown Comics is a glorious exception.
So. Go into a comic shop and note its absence. Then complain to the high hills that they haven’t got a copy. Go here if you need some ammunition. If you fancy asking the retailer to order a copy for you, please do. It’s from Markosia. You may need order code: AUG073845. But either way, make some noise about it.
Then tell me the response you get. If you do choose to order a copy, tell me how long, or if at all, it takes to arrive.
The results of this experiment will form a Lying In the Gutters vodcast in the future. It may well change the comics industry. For the better as well, which is nice.
Is that the experiment that will change the comics industry? Or the vodcast in general? And is it changing the industry in the sense of any random crossover from the ’90s changing the world of comics forever, or is something actually going to change?
You, as they say, decide…
