The Daily Waffle: Episode One Hundred!!!!

June 30, 2020

  

OUR DELIVERY IS LATE THIS WEEK

 

Diamond sent it to the Cinema. I should have everything tomorrow. 

 

 

DREDD-FULLY IMMERSIVE

 

Drokk! You will soon be able to visit the Big Meg! Well, sort of.

 

Opening next spring, Judge Dredd: Uprising! The Live Experience will feature five separate zones of physical and mental challenges, a lazer tag arena and everything else you need to immerse yourself in the world of Mega-City One. Check out the trailer!

 

CBLDF BOARD MEMBERS STEP DOWN

 

Following the resignation of its director in the wake of sexual assault allegations, three members of the board have announced that they are stepping down.

 

Full details HERE.

 

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!
