Very interesting to see that a whole bunch of countries new to CBO have been checking us out! It was very interesting to find that CBO is getting a couple hundred views per day from Japan!
Sad that our two regulars from Antarctica no longer turn upon stats! I do so worry about them...I wonder whether they found a flying saucer buried in the- no. Let's not go there. Where's Kenneth Tobey when you need him?
And it has taken about 11 months but I have restarted work on The Green Skies. A bit of a struggle but I am determined to finish the book before Summer. Three pages yesterday so I'm getting there.
Despite the fact that certain events rejected my request for a table to sell books from 2011 to last year (and 2016 I got immediate "nos") they -the organisers- the moronic asses "in charge" have started asking me to publicise their events for this year. I started out firmly but politely explaining why I was not promoting UK events and even included the link to CBOs longer post on this matter.
Then one responds that if I was "really into comics" I "should" publicise because people might miss attending the event and that was money they needed. Yeah, you want to make money "playing" at comics as a hobby (after all they are not making tax declarations -you can find out a lot online these days) but the persons who need to make a real living from comics -myself as a publisher and the back issue dealers who kept these events alive for decades- really do no matter? I told them to "feck off" -but I used the REALLY bad "F" word not "feck".
Do not pester me with your UK events. Do NOT care one jot -same amount as you care for people who try to make a living from comics. Take your hobby away -sooner we have an implosion and all these "conventions" are cut back to a bare minimum the better -just like comic shops.
Don't like that? Fuck off.
