The Daily Waffle: Episode Ninety Five


CONNECT WITH DC TO SEE WHAT THEY'RE BRINGING OUT IN JULY AND AUGUST

As you may know, DC comics are no longer being distributed by Diamond in the US, and although Diamond UK will be handling DC until at least the end of the year, they will no longer be listed in Previews.

DC (which, like Marvel has had its product listed in a separate catalogue distributed alongside Previews for some time) is now taking it's catalogue entirely in house with the launch of DC Connect.

We have no physical copies, (as yet...) but it is available online for free.

Download DC Connect #1 HERE.

THE COMICS COMMUNITY CONTINUES TO FACE ITS SEXUALLY EXPLOITATIVE PAST

We're not going into details on this - you can read more HERE - but we note that Scott Allie, the former Editor in Chief at Dark Horse Comics has been accused of "prolonged sexual abuse" by former Dark Horse Editor Shawna Gore.

Mike Mignola, who has worked very closely with Allie for many years released a statement on Twitter stating that he believed Gore, and as a result will be cutting all ties with Allie. Dark Horse is yet to comment, save for tweeting its support for Mignola's decision.

WE MISSED A VIDEO ON THE "WHAT'S ON THE RACK?" PAGE YESTERDAY

The link to the "Non Image Indie" video was corrupted. Fixed now, but if you don't want the hassle of going back to that page, here it is:

WE STILL DON'T KNOW WHEN WE'RE RE-OPENING, BUT EXPECT NEWS SOON

Nothing it add to that really - we'll let you know.

This is clearly a far from exhausting list - and it's writer heavy because I tend to follow writers not artists. We'll be adding to it.

Go follow them, and find more women to follow, and listen. You don't have to agree, but it's high time that we listened to what women have to say.
