"Amazon occasionally tells me (via email or when I order) that they may not get me what I ordered as fast as usual -- that orders of essentials (baby formula, diapers, toilet paper ... uh, more stuff, I guess) gets priority. But the last book I…"
"I think Amazon has always gotten books directly from the publishers, not Diamond.
I have books scheduled for April, May, June and August that are still shown as on schedule. Of course, that may change. I'm concerned that some of the printers…"
"I recently bought the eight "Master Series" Vampirella TPBs. I'm halfway, though, and enjoying them.
That's not a given; I generally think Vampirella is a truly stupid character and it takes a top-notch writer to make her work.…"
"My beard didn't itch at all in my youth. I had a great beard, luxuriant and multi-colored: black, brown, red, blond and all colors in between. Very soft. Even girls, most of whom hate beards, didn't mind mine. (Or at least that's what…"
