  • irishmoxie: I think they just want you to use comiXology. I prefer the kindle app to comiXology. Much easier to swipe through pages.
    March 06, 2018, 01:49:17 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Maybe there's some slight modification to the PDF files they use in the ComiXology app to adapt it to feature-specific things in Amazon's Kindle reader app, and that takes a little while for them to convert the files? Just a wild guess.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Yeah, it's the digital version.
    March 03, 2018, 08:34:18 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Oh, and if you're talking about the digital version, then it might have a different release date, too. Amazon's digital comics are really ComiXology's digital comics. Amazon owns ComiXology. Most publishers have a same-day-and-date print & digital release policy, but ACP's might be different, or it could just be an odd fluke.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Comic book shops gor VIXENS #4 on February 28th. Sometimes Amazon may get products on a different date, because the bookseller market is serviced by a different distribution system. Could be later, or sometimes, earlier, but usually only by a few days or a week.

...The Sears at the Capitola Mall in Santa Cruz County is in decent shape, actually! The S-K thing was discussed on another (non-comics) board of mine. Although an outside of the building " Sears " sign was missing color in one of its As, when I went inside, the Capitola Sears was decent'looking, tidy & well-stocked - Not the run-down ghost town I was anticipating! (Someone at that other board works there.)

The mall itself isn't super crowded, I suppose - their food court consisted of three stands! The had a " pay a fee to play video games on a big screen " place, and a comicsgames store, with Magic tables set up in the back - I don't think I'd seen a comics shop in a mall since the boom comics shop years ended in a crash in 1994 or so - Frankly, though I like them, I thought that malls tended to snobbiness about " teenager-attracting businesses " like comics and vg places. Perhaps they can't be so snobbish anymore? ???

I think it's more like... what they don't want to attract is teenagers loitering around, just looking for a place to hang out and meet their friends. What they do want to attract is teenagers who have money to spend in their stores. As long as your money is green (or your credit/bank card is valid), they just want customers and aren't particular as to whom they are.

...It was one of the " S "s
in the Sears sign that was missing color. I got there about 6:30 tonite (Sunday). They have 4 anchor stores, Sears, Target, Kohl's, and Macy's. Their closing time was 8 PM. The Sears was already closed :-* ! As was a Lenscrafters by it. I suppose a Lenscrafters would need a liscenced glasses-grinder/exam-giver on site at all times, and I recall the speculation made here earlier about pharmacies, etcetera...And, did the " Black Friday " weekend have any effect on this? The Kohl's was open. By the time I got to the readon I came, Target (past 7), they seemed 100% closed. As I left (to go into the open-till-10 Chili's actually) about 9:45/50 the comics shop was still open and Kohl's was. I never got a look at Macy's.

Just...close...both....please. The slow suffering of two iconic retailers is too awful to witness for me... 😔😎

...And the suffering continues:

Yeah, I saw this yesterday on my phone. I was kinda surprised when they closed the Kmart that I used to work at, since it was supposedly one of the better stores, but it looks like the company would rather close Kmart stores over Sears stores.

By the way, from the third-quarter results posted on November 30, they had a net loss of $558,000,000.

Makes one wonder what their motivation to keep going is. One cannot keep going after losing so much money, they just can't--unless I'm missing something.... ???

...I took my first trip to the K-Mart in Watsonville, 1 hr away by bus since I've been back here, to see if they still sell Archie digests. They do! ;D :D
  B&V Jumbo Nos. 161 and 163, IIRC. I bought the former ~ from what seemed to be their only magazine rack. The digests occupied three of the four digest-sized spaces, but that's probably because someone left them spread out. I didn't see any Archie trademark on the digest-sized  racks, I saw something else. They were stocked right next to the Black Panther official tie-in, BTW! Only one Spanish-language magazine, Hola! I thought there'd be more. They had TV Guide, I hadn't seen that in a while/was wondering if they were still in business. Intreprid Boy Comics Reporter, signing out! :) :smitten: ;)
