Avatar Press HQ Hit By Lightning

Forsythlightning20

Illinois is no stranger to regular lightning storms and occasional extreme weather.  Early this morning, a bolt of lightning struck the Avatar home office causing the destruction of some equipment, loss of phone and internet connectivity, and a significant disruption in workflow.  There were no injuries and the team at the location are working to get everything back up and running.

Creators, associates, and partners should expect a delay in communication while resources are being rebuilt.  Infrastructure and hard-line damage have yet to be assessed by local power crews, making it impossible to estimate a timetable for resolution.  The Avatar team appreciates the concern and patience of everyone during the reconstruction.

Avatar Press has often been billed as a “lightning rod” when it comes to controversial publishing, but today that reputation turned out to be a little too literal for everyone’s tastes.
