  THE WEEK IN DEPTH
Suffering Sciatica...

COMICBOOKMAN SEZ: I'm finally getting the 070115 shipping up and posted half way through 070115-in other words this is getting out the door almost a week late. The reason for the delay and the lack of a newsletter this week is I was struck with a case of sciatica shortly after the last newsletter went out (062415 edition) and dealing with it has absorbed almost all of my time. Believe me it's no fun and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Updating the website has been the collateral damage from this bout, and Bo's News, JR's Reviews and the July Advanced Ordering are among the casualties. So until it works it's way out of my back please have some patience. The books are still coming out on time (as you've seen over the last few weeks at the store) it's just that everything else has taken a back seat.

And before I forget, let me remind you that we will be running with our normal store hours during the Independence Day weekend. Additionally, New Comics will be up and ready to rock at 7:00am on Wednesday 070815. No delays-don't miss out!
