There's a few things I wanted to bring folks' attention to, but not a whole lot I can add as commentary...
In answering reader questions, Tom Brevoort calls upon Marvel Sales VP, David Gabriel, to answer what exactly Marvel provides to retailers. Not being a retailer myself, I was actually quite surprised to see just how long the list is! Worth a read-through to see how Marvel helps promote its books to retailers. (Although some of the last few items are a bit on the overly gratuitous side.)
On his own blog, Colin Panetta talks about the development process for the cover to Comic Book Fanthropology. He also says some nice things about me.
Nominations for the 2009 Comics Buyer's Guide's annual Fan Awards are now open. My buddy Dave says, "This year David Gallaher (writer), Steve Ellis (penciller, inker, colorist, cover artist), Scott O. Brown (letterer), Kwanza Johnson (editor) and our comics High Moon, Box 13, and Hulk: Winter Guard are eligible for the prestigious CBG awards." Oddly, he didn't include any suggestions for WHAT he was hoping people would nominate!
