For all you comic book fans who patronize your local comic shop, Tails: Book One is now available for pre-order via Diamond’s January Previews catalog. For all those who need a quick lesson on comic book distribution: local comic shops primarily order through one distributor, Diamond Comics Distributors. Every month, they put out a hefty catalog called Previews. The catalog released in a particular month (in this case, January) is previewing comics, books, graphic novels, and other items scheduled for release 2 months away (in this case, March). Got it? Tails: Book One is slated for mid-April, if you wanna get super-specific about it.
NOW — I want all of you Tails-Fans to run out to your local comic shop and ask your retailer to order it. The Order Number is STK457317. It’s Tails: Book One from Hermes Press (or Volume One) on page 307 of Previews. It’s a softcover, 7 x 10, 160 pages, and priced at $15.99.
I know it’s easier to just wait until it’s available online, but orders through comic shops will look a lot better to my publisher. I’m not asking for free money here, but I am asking for anyone who wishes to show their support to spread the word at your local comic shop. Come on, it can’t be that hard, can it?
Within the next month or so, I’ll post up a pre-order banner for online orders, but if you can order through your local comic shop, please consider it.
