I got an interesting email the other day from Katherine Thoresen, of, a new online comic book store which is going live this Fall, quote unquote. She asked if I'd be willing to pass the news on to all of you, and I thought "Why the heck not" here's the significant text of her message, copied and pasted so's I don't lose something in translation:

We hope to deliver a user interface full of innovative features, good customer reviews to help folks find material they like, and great prices. The initial version of our service will carry the full inventory of comic books from Diamond, but within a year, we intend to start doing outreach to smaller/independent publishers that aren't carried by Diamond or most existing stores.

As we develop the website, we want to get feedback from comic enthusiasts to help us shape the business and website, so we put a short survey online.


To encourage participation, one lucky respondent will receive 5 graphic novels valued at about $100. Also, everyone who participates in the short survey will receive one year of *any* comic book title, for free, when you subscribe to another comic book at our regularly discounted prices.

So go, take the survey. It will be quick and painless, and you might score some free GNs!
