Upcoming Furry Comics for March
Doodles wrote in with the following: "For the past few years, I've been posting a list of upcoming comics that would be of furry interest on alt.fan.furry. The list has been based off the Diamond Comics Previews catalog, which lists titles two months in advance of their ship date. Included in the listing is publisher, title, where in the catalog it's listed, listed price and order number from Diamond. In addition, I like to include one or two comments (not always favorable, to be honest) about most of the books. The idea being that if I can get a few more copies of a book sold, it can make the difference between sink or swim, especially for the more obscure titles out there. I'm attaching the list for this month so you can see a sample.
But a.f.f. has a limited reach. Usenet is becoming ever more marginalized and unobserved, and it would be good to have more than one place to post the list. What I'd like to propose is that future listings be submitted to Flayrah for publishing on the website, in hopes that a few more folks can see it and maybe a few more copies can be sold. Would this be possible?"
It certainly is possible! I do have to apologize for taking so long to get the listing up, however. Next month, I'll be more timely about it. New listings for the new year. Along with the books, Diamond has announced that Free Comic Day for 2003 will be Saturday, May 3rd. A good chance to introduce new readers to reading comics, furry or not.
