reported sightings  

Pádraig reports copies of Chance at Forbidden Planet in Dublin. My friend Spidey is apparently going around buying up all the copies in Boston. My aunt in Santa Clara, CA called the local comic shop to see if they had it in so she could get a copy, and it was already sold out.

If the weather weren’t so miserable, I might go see if I could get a visual on one in Dublin. :)

(there is, btw, an actual discussion forum at the Dabel Bros’ site if people care to use it….)

I hope he's letting people read issue one so they'll want to go buy issue two for themselves! :)

I bought a copy yesterday in Travelling Man in Newcastle. And read it. And really enjoyed it. And it's on my Standing Order. Now I just need to get it signed.

Did your Aunt in Santa Clara call Lee's Comics, or a smaller vendor? Enquiring minds from Campbell (adjacent to San Jose) want to know.

Turns out my aunt's in Santa Rosa. I know Lee's had it, but (probably Palo Alto one, since that's where most of the people I know get their comics) has sold out now.

Call anyway. It creates buzz. Order another copy, if they're sold out. Even if you don't pick it up yourself it'll go on the shelves, and in order for this thing to succeed we need to get it on the shelves as much as possible! :)

Have picked up my copy from Bosco's. Only one copy left on shelf.

Have pictures on my phone, but don't know how to make them be somewhere other than my phone, yet.

Bosco's employees v. excited.

*laugh* I've never figured out how to send pictures from my phone to anywhere else either. Good luck with it. :)

Is there anybody left at Bosco's who *remembers* me?

I tried to snag one at our local shop, and they'd already sold them. Bugger!

Did you encourage them to re-order?
Lauraskeagsidhe on December 22nd, 2008 05:07 pm (UTC)
Yup. We'll see if they listen to me. Everyone should, but some just don't realize that. ;-)
kitmizkit on December 22nd, 2008 05:08 pm (UTC)
In this case, they especially should! :)
