The Daily Waffle: Episode Ninety Nine

WE HAVE NEWS ABOUT THE RE-OPENING OF DESTINATION VENUS!

We can't tell you much, because we aren't announcing the date yet - but here's the road map we have so far:

We're not re-opening on 4th July, because the cinema isn't - so you will have to wait for us a little longer. We have a date for the re-opening of the Everyman Harrogate, but they haven't announced it yet and we don't want to scoop them.

When we do re-open, initially at least, hours will be limited and as a result we will most likely be in-store only on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

In the meantime deliveries will continue as they have since comics went back into distribution back in May.

The end of all this may not be entirely in sight yet - it'll be a long time before we get back to the way things used to be, if indeed we ever do. But I can see the beginning of the end from here. For the first time in a long time I can say "We'll see you soon!" and mean it literally, not figuratively.

See you soon!

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.
