Comic Market Solicits Questions

Press Release:

Many retailers are concerned that the “DC Explanation Tour 2011″ has too few stops to satisfy all of us.  It’s a big change, happening very quickly, being met with lots of uncertainty.  Happening even quicker is the “DC Explanation Tour 2011.”  With many prime comic book retail regions being left out and only a few weeks to make proper plans many of us just won’t be able to attend.

This Tuesday, June 14, 2011, all retailers are urged to chime in to the #comicmarket Twitterstorm to share the questions they want to ask DC Comics.

“#comicmarket is the perfect place for everyone to be heard,” said Larry Doherty of Larry’s Comics and #comicmarket founder. “With so many retailers participating in #comicmarket, we will prompt important questions that have been over looked. It is certain that a number of #comicmarket participants will make the DC Tour meetings and ask those questions.”

Larry Marder posed some great questions early Sunday morning (search @larrymarder or #comicmarket to review his questions), focusing on the business aspect of the change, as opposed to the fan aspect. He said, “DC retail tour can’t be about content & teams. Sharp focus on marketing & biz detail needed. Not Superman’s lost panties.”

Please be a part of #comicmarket this Tuesday, June 14, 2011 and tell the Comic Market all the important questions you have for DC, and then join #comicmarket every Tuesday and help support #comicmarket!

“In fairness, I don’t believe the DC Tour was initially planned so they’ve had to scramble and have done the best they could to include as many retail regions as possible, covering as much ground as they can in a short period of time, while still being a part of the Summer convention circuit.  While I regret that New England is not on the tour I understand that time is working against all of us and many areas could not be visited – just a side note that I think is important.” -Ralph DiBernando, owner of Jetpack Comics and #comicmarket founder.

MA – The Cape Drink n’ Draw

Writer Jason Ciaramella appears on June 15th at Larry’s Wonderful World of Comics from 5:00 – 8:00pm.

Jason posted on his blog:

THE CAPE LEGACY EDITION hits shelves on June 15th, and to celebrate the release, Larry’s Wonderful World of Comics in Lowell, MA,  is hosting me for the evening. This isn’t going to be a regular, boring old signing with some jerk sitting behind a table while you wait in line. No. Screw that. We’ve got plans, and they’re fucking huge.

Larry’s hosts a local Drink & Draw on Wednesday nights with a different theme each week. The theme for June 15th is going to be THE CAPE, and I’m going to write an original, one-page CAPE script that will be kept secret until the event. Everyone in attendance will have the opportunity to draw my script, and here’s where it gets awesome:

THE DRAWINGS WILL BE COLLECTED, AND THE BEST ONE WILL BE PRINTED IN A FUTURE ISSUE OF THE CAPE.

That’s right. A chance to see your work published in a real-life comic book for people all over the world to see. Not too shabby, eh? You wont get that kind of love from Marvel or DC, I can assure you of that.

Also, for the writers in the group, I’ll be giving a little script writing seminar while the artists are doing their thing. It’s an open forum where I talk about some of the lesser known aspects of script writing, and then take questions. I like it to be more of a discussion, where everyone contributes and offers advice. I know nobody wants to sit and listen to me talk about panel counts for a half-hour, myself included.
