    here is Golden Apple's 2c if it helps

    I'm sure at this point everyone in the Industry has heard about Amazon acquiring Comixology (happens later this year). If you were out of town and/or live in a cave with a 2-way radio...the end is neigh (not really).

    My honest reaction and commentary on this is positive..for now. For the longest time, Comixology has been able to keep retailers like Golden Apple at bay by providing a digital webstore that is both inconvenient for our customers to use as well as non-customizable for me. Basically, everyone's store is the exact same content and THEY pick what is featured, on sale, etc. which is lame.

    The fact is, Amazon is more retailer friendly (sort of). What I mean is that their whole platform is based on businesses and individuals to have hosted webstores that they take a cut from. We already have an Amazon Webstore and my hope is that they integrate our Comixology Digital store to it. And unlike Comixology, WE keep the purchased amount from the customer (minus the Amazon fee) not the other way around like Comixology does currently.

    Also, comic books are not like CD's and/or regular prose books, they are collectible. What I mean is that they have value and are meant to be collected, cherished and enjoyed for generations. i don't see comic shops falling over like bookstores without a geek fight...with lightsabers!

    In addition, this weekend we are launching our new Comic & Graphic Novel Imprint: Golden Apple Books at WonderCon in Anaheim. This is a partnership with Author House that is owned by Penguin-Random House and ALREADY HAS A DISTRIBUTION DEAL WITH AMAZON. So, we're grandfathered in, sort of speak. Come down to our booth and we'll fill you in on the details. Honestly, I think we are positioned very well for the future.

    However, if for some reason, I am wrong and Amazon conquers the Comic Industry by sending drones to your doorstep with Wednesday comics and most brick & mortar shops go out (like mainstream bookstores), I hope that after 35 years Golden Apple may be the Amoeba of LA for comics. We will do our best to hold true to LA and service our loyal customers.

    Lastly, but not leastly, our NEW WEBSITE is LIVE! Let us know what you think. We will be adding tons of pictures, videos and of course products to sell (Exclusives, autographed comics, etc.)

    Hope to see you this week at The Apple and/or WonderCon this weekend.

    Until next week, Be Excellent To Each Other,

    Garth Ennis And John McCrea's Dicks Return In June In 'End Of Time' - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    The first series was a lot of (immature, profane) fun. Hopefully this new one will be more of the same.

    Vertigo's Federal Bureau Of Physics Headed For Big Screen - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    The FBP is a fictional government bureau in a world that really, really needs one. One in which disturbances in the laws of physics, like sudden appearances of wormholes, changes in gravity, etc. are as common as weather changes. Adam Hardy is our protagonist here, as he deals with increasingly dangerous quantum disasters as well as departmental battles.
    This is a cool, weird little comic. Glad to see it getting an adaptation.

    Here Are The Eisner Awards Nominations For 2014 - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    Best Continuing Series

    East of West, by Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta (Image)
    Hawkeye, by Matt Fraction and David Aja (Marvel)
    Nowhere Men, by Eric Stephenson and Nate Bellegarde (Image)
    Saga, by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples (Image)
    Sex Criminals, by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky (Image)
    Nice one, Image, although Nowhere Men hasn't released an issue in... forever. Only 6 issues have come out period, and I haven't seen a new one in a long time.
