NEWSLETTER COMING SOON
We'll be launching The Venusian Times next week (if we can make everything work properly) as a supplement to the Daily Waffle. The intention is that once lockdown is over The Waffle will end (or at least become the semi-regular Wednesday Waffle again) and The Venusian Times will be how we keep you all up to date with shipping dates and new comics. Click HERE to send us an email to let us know you'd like to get The Venusian Times direct to your inbox once a week.
It's a slow news day, so we're going to mention the forthcoming DC Universe/CW show Stargirl. You can read more about it over at Bleeding Cool, who have a fairly detailed article about it HERE.
I mention it now because I was listening to a recent Word Balloon podcast the brilliant John Siuntres interviewed Geoff Johns, and as part of the preparation for that interview Johns had allowed Siuntres to watch the first couple of episodes of the show. To say Siuntres liked it would be an understatement.
If you're unfamiliar with Word Balloon (and if you are, you really should give it a listen) you'll know that Siuntres isn't a shrinking violet when it comes to saying he doesn't like things, so that's a genuinely good endorsement. It's kinda nice to have something to look forward to...
DIAMOND CONFIRM NEW SCHEDULE FOR DELIVERIES
We have previously announced that Diamond would be recommencing weekly deliveries from 20th May. As a result of various factors (their own warehouse capacity if they are to maintain social distancing and protect their staff, availability and cost of air freight and the need to be consistent) they have now revised and reduced this schedule. Deliveries will now re-start on Wednesday 27th May, and be fortnightly until the end of June, at which point they will reassess the situation.
The new schedule is as follows.
Wednesday May 27th (Regular timed deliveries to be made on Wed 27th due to Bank Holiday Mon 25th May)
Wednesday June 10th
Wednesday June 24th
What will actually be shipping on those dates is unclear at present. We'll keep you informed.
GRAPHIC NOVELS ON DEMAND SERVICE NOW ACTIVE
For various logistical reasons we don't list our range of graphic novels and trade paperbacks online. However, we are now able to offer an ordering service - just tell us what you want, either by e-mail, through our social media or using the form on our website (click HERE to go to the appropriate page), we'll send you an invoice and have your book (or books) shipped directly to your door. We can even have them gift-wrapped if you're sending them to somebody else. (Or if you just like unwrapping things...)

Slightly cheesy, overly macho eighties Cop show. But hey - "It works for me..."
