I'm probably stupid to have not mentioned this before, but my understanding is that we DO have a large confirmed order of CAPTAIN AMERICA #25 (1st printings) coming in this Wednesday, and we currently have a list going at the store if you want to "get in line" for one. We are, last time I looked (Saturday) about 16 deep now, so we should be able to fill any request before Wednesday with no problem (with the normal cavaet, as we are with all books at all times, you're limited to 2 copies max, unless you preorder something) I also forgot to mention my appearance on issue #231 of the Comic Geek Speak podcast. I show up around the 51 minute mark, blabbing about sales and how retailers order things like 52 and COUNTDOWN. You can find that at http://www.comicgeekspeak.com/episodedetail.asp?episodeid=319 -- if you pay attention, you can hear the start of my cold, and maybe even me cooking dinner, or Ben in his bath. I really really want us to eventually do at least one test podcast ourselves here at Savage Critic, because I think that would rock.
This early daylight savings time is weird. I *think* I like it, but that's only because it gives me a decent chance of a second park trip with Ben in the afternoon for a couple of weeks here. We had a GLORIOUSLY beautiful day here in San Francisco for the changeover which was nice, except that I'm on tail-end of sickness, and desperate to catch up on paperwork and stuff, and Tzipora has gone into full-bore sickness -- 2 days behind me. Of course, she's fifty times healthier than I am, so she's not sleeping for 16 hours a day, just being low energy. Still, sucks to have a LOVELY day, and to be not at 100%.
Right, that's me catching up. Here's what's shipping this week:
