DC’s going back to press on their Fallen Angel collection… but the price has gone from $12.95 to $14.99. I hope there’s enough demand for them to consider collecting some additional issues.
Prism Comics is seeking volunteer help for their 2007 Prism Guide to LGBT Comics. They’re looking for an Editor and a Designer. I couldn’t find the release at their site, but here’s a very similar request from last year.
Archie Comics is putting out Sonic the Hedgehog Archives. Don’t get too excited, though — they’re using “archives” as another word for “reprint digest”. The first one will ship in November, collecting four recolored issues for $7.49 US.
ICV2 says Tower Records is in trouble.
Although the 89-store Tower chain was nowhere near as large as Musicland, it’s still another nail in the coffin of the music store channel, which over the last ten years has been an important source of sales on graphic novels, home video, toys, and other licensed goods.
I guess Tower no longer has the cachet it once did. Now, there’s the internet for overseas purchases or downloads, but I remember when a Tower was the place for those interested in more obscure bands or imports.
