  • Bullet Points

    There's a preview of the first issue of the 5-part mini "Bullet Points" that's due in stores next Wednesday.

    I've heard JMS describe it a couple of times and wasn't really sure that I'd be interested. I don't really know much about Capt. America or some of the other characters it'll be touching on. After seeing the preview, though, I'm definitely going to be checking it out.

    If your local comic shop participates in Diamond's preview program they should have a copy of the whole issue in their store today.

        Oh my: "It's a great change-up, and I'm starting to wonder if this sort of thing might be more my bag than an ongoing series, though I have to say I'm massively enjoying writing Thor at the moment."

        I realllly hope he doesn't drop Spidey or Thor.

          rang 3rdplace (one of my fave local comic-book stores) and they have it although they do want 4 euro for it .
          As a point of interest, how much is it over there?

It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

            Nice that they got it over there so quickly. It's $2.99 here.

              It's going for the standard $2.99 that Marvel charges for most books. However, there's freaking 26 pages of ads versus the 22 pages of story!!!! F you, Marvel!

                I see that.
                Why am I paying 4 euro (effectively about $6 or twice the price) for a comic that costs $2.99? I'm going to ring around the (3) comic-book stores and find out how much they are chargimg for it. If it's 4 euro all round then I'll wait for the trade.

                replying to oneself is bad nettequitte so I'm editing this message. Yep it seems I got it cheap, the otehr tow stores wanted 4.15 and 4.25.
                I'm sufficiently miffed by this that I'll post soemthing in the newsgroup. In addition, rabid fan though I am of JMS's work, I'll be waiting for the trade.

                  If you actually want to make a difference, let the stores or the suppliers know and ask what importation or Customs fees they have to pay. Marvel, or especially JMS can't do a thing. From what I've read, Marvel is just as happy whichever you buy.

                    Interesting ... I am in the UK rather than Ireland, and get my comics sent to me by Forbidden Planet in Glasgow. The $2.99 Marvel titles all cost me ú1.75, which includes a small discount (25p I believe) for having them on Standing Order.

                    Of course, I have postage to pay on top, but it is still a pretty good deal all around.

                      I feel your pain, my friend is heading over to London tomorrow for a week, culminating with attending the world premier of Casino Royale the lucky bastard, and he was grumbling about the exchange rate...

                          Anyone read it yet? I'm not going to get a chance to until maybe this weekend. I'm curious.

                            hmm, 1.75 is almost 3 euros (general rate is 1 euro 50 to the pound). I rang all 3 shops and complained, they say they import them from the UK and this reflects what the UK supplier is charging them, plus a profit.
                            <sigh>
                            I'll wait for the trade, at 5 comics in the mini it'll cost me 20 euro for the whole set, and the trade won't run me much over 12. I've not read it yet either, still have lots of other stuff to read.
