The Daily Waffle: Episode Sixty Three

CORRECTED NEWSLETTER GOING OUT TOMORROW

 

I forgot to mention this in the video, but just so you know, I predictably failed to get issue one of our email newsletter The Venusian Times absolutely right.

 

Not everyone who signed up got it, and there were some internal errors in the newsletter itself. I'm sorting all of that out today and issue 1b will be out tomorrow.

 

RAY PORTER REVEALED AS DARKSEID IN THE SNYDER CUT

 

Read all about it over at Screen Rant. This has not particularly increased my personal interest in watching the movie - although I'm a very big fan of Porter's voice work - but it does make the theatrical release even more incomprehensible.

 

I mean, one of the issues with Justice League  was the villain. I said at the time that I couldn't understand why, from the whole of the League's vast rogues gallery the chose, all people, Steppenwulf?! Darkseid makes much more sense

 

 

DIAMOND DELIVERY SCHEDULE TO END OF JUNE

 

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...)
