PressWatch: Hundreds of newspapers dive in to give more and more and more and more coverage to Free Comic Book Day including  Time Magazine, USA Today, LA Times, Bloomberg, and the Washington Post

Flight Plan: Or, What’s This About Pre-Ordering? « Kelly Sue DeConnick

So now we know why.  Let’s talk how.  For the purpose of this instruction set, I’m going to assume you’re brand new to this whole process. In fact, I’m kind of writing this for my mom and her friends.  (Hi, mom.  Hi, mom’s friends.)  I’m also going to assume that you want to pre-order my book.  This process is the same across the board, but, hey, this is my site, I’ve got two kids and let’s not fool anyone here, this activism is borne entirely from a desire to keep Captain Marvel (and Ghost and whatever else I’m writing) coming out every month.
