Choices, choices

July 30, 2007

You’re standing in the lobby of the cineplex. Do you choose the wildly improbable action-fest or the quirky chick flick? I couldn’t decide, so this week’s Flipped looks at both Samurai Commando (CMX) and Translucent (Dark Horse).

Survey says

July 30, 2007

I got an interesting e-mail from someone involved in the development of an on-line comic shop, looking for feedback from potential customers and willing to pony up the swag to get it. According to Katherine Thoresen, Heavy Ink will feature…

“…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 with in a year, we intend to start doing outreach to smaller/independent publishers that aren’t carried by Diamond or most existing stores.”

Sounds like a good idea to me, and they’ll be giving about $100 bucks worth of graphic novels to one survey participant and a buy-one-get-one-free subscription offer to everyone else who fills it out.
