FEEDBACK TO THE ANNUAL
Feedback to the Annual here at home has been very positive: sales have been very brisk. We’ve sold 23 copies in Forbidden Planet in 10 days and 18 copies in about a week. We’ve even had some reorders through from Diamond including for our Barnes & Noble orders, which is exceptionally encouraging. So it means one thing: it looks pretty definite that they’ll be another one next year. We did make some mistakes in this one, mistakes that we shall rectify next year…
On the freelance front, I’ve been very busy. I have written four news pieces for Death Ray (Iron Man, Star Trek, Beowulf and Watchmen) which will appear in #5 of that magazine, out on August 23rd, and I have two features running in Comics International 204, one on Chris Golden and Mike Mignola’s gothic illustrated novel Baltimore and the other looking at the path Watchmen took to get to the big screen. I should be doing more for both Death Ray and Comics International in the coming months…
I went to Caption last weekend, which although it’s a tiny show, it was nice to get out of London for the day – it’s in Oxford – and it was nice to see Dave Baillie, Douglas Noble and Daniel Goodbrey again…
