Right, for those that have asked about the lack of Archie Comics news -though I did post something yesterday.
Basically, news has appeared after I’ve chased things up or searched the web. I was getting a bit concerned at hearing nothing since I’ve supported Archie beforte they became “Cool” and not just what you saw on CBO. I sent an email yesterday as I was asked why I’d not reviewed the Mega Man books I’d publicised. Well, as I’d not received anything I automatically thought “not out yet”. Actually, October will see issue #7.
Apparently, Archie Comics new printers “don’t send out books” (so you ask them to or do it yourself?) so nothing has been sent for yonks. Nobody told me. I was told Archie do now send out pdf copies but as CBO was “anti pdf”…again, no one told me.
So, Archie fans: do not ask me about issues.
Shop owners:do not ask me to recommend Archie books.
I just do not see the books any more (so no need for me to schlepp around stores with copies to push). Considering that CBO was Archie Comics most vocal supporter before they became cool it is a bit like a slap in the face. Someone could have told me. I pointed out WHY (its all there in Reviews Policy) I can’t take pdf copies for review. No reply since.
So, Archie news will be few and far between from now on.
