Tuesday’s Twitter #comicmarket discussion was pretty fast a furious with lots of new participants and some lurkers coming out of the woods.  A lot of the discussion was interesting but my main question of what stores are doing to encourage their customers to spread the word remains unanswered.  Guess, I’ll keep pressing for that question.

Today is also new comic day, what are you picking up?  While you contemplated what you’re going to purchase this week, here’s the news you might have missed.
