EISNER AWARD NOMINATIONS ANNOUNCED
The Eisner Awards are, without question, the most prestigious awards in Anglophone comics. The nominees for 2020 have now been announced - it's a long list, so we won't reproduce it here, but you can go and take a look at the San Diego Comicon website.
As you'd expect, there is some great stuff on the list. We'd like to send a particular shout out to the people behind Crowded, a brilliantly funny action comedy set in a world where you can crowd fund assassination, nominated for Best Ongoing Series, alongside the equally excellent but completely different gritty crime thriller Criminal, and Snow, Glass, Apples, the stunning adaptation of Neil Gaiman's short story retelling the tale of Snow White from the point of view of the "wicked stepmonther", illustrated by the brilliant Coleen Doran.
Full details can be found HERE.

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 June 10th
Wednesday June 24th
What will actually be shipping on those dates is unclear at present. We'll keep you informed.
