What Manga Publishers Are Doing During the Pandemic

During the pandemic quarantine, book publishing is mostly continuing and comic book publishing has mostly ceased. Which lead to me wondering what the manga publishers are doing. They have very little dependence on the comic market stores, so that shutdown doesn’t matter to them. But many bookstores are also closed, reducing the ability to reach customers, and manga series are serialized, making it important to keep readers hooked. The publishers, in general, are slowing down their release schedu...

A Bit of Comic Direct Market History

Milton Griepp, who runs icv2.com, used to own Capital City Distribution, which was headquartered here in Madison, Wisconsin.

Operating Notes: COVID-19 edition

As it has almost all areas of our lives, COVID-19 has affected ham radio. Here are a few observations: It seems to me that the bands have been more active over the past couple of weeks.

This is just anecdotal, but this situation is bringing out some guys who may not have operated CW for a while. What le...

Hugo Awards 2020: Initial Thoughts

The 2020 Hugo Award Finalists were announced earlier this week, so it's time for the requisite whinging: Best Novel has some interesting meta-characteristics. In terms of genre, we've got half science fiction, half fantasy (though at least one of the ones I'm counting as SF appears to be more of a mixture of SF and fantasy, and in looking further, one of the fantasy seems to have SF elements). Only two novels are part of a series, and they're both the first in the series (and, one hopes, could...
