The goals of ComicsPRO are for direct market specialty retailers to speak with a single, strong voice on important industry issues, to provide educational and mentoring support to current and future retailers, and to offer opportunities to reduce some of the fixed costs that all comics’ specialty retailers incur.
I’m sure organizing the group is like herding cats, but kudos to these folks for attempting to provide something comics as a professional industry needs.
Graeme McMillan at the Newsarama blog sums up some recent net drama in a post titled “Note to reviewers: Stay away from Tokyopop” (link no longer available). Which is overreaction, but that’s part of his point, that lots of people seem to overreact when it comes to Tpop’s OEL books. Joshua Elder shows up in the comments to offer free review copies of Mail Order Ninja in order to prove his point that I’m the only person who disliked it.
