If Dave is only going to read a list of people who have donated and the donation amounts in the next weekly update I think he should stop doing these videos.



This was incredibly boring.

Has anyone managed to actually get hold of a copy of the remastered Minds volume yet? I've had a copy on order from my LCS in London for about six weeks and the shop's been chasing it for me, but still with no luck from Diamond.

I checked with Page 45 in Nottingham a couple of weeks ago too and, as of that date, they were in the same boat. Is it just the UK that's having this problem, or are copies yet to reach shops in the US too? Maybe it's not so much a Diamond problem as specifically a Diamond UK problem?

As far as the Weekly Updates go, I think it's time to put them out of their misery. It's been obvious for a while now that Dave very rarely has enough interesting material to make it worth doing them on a weekly deadline, and I think it's pretty clear his heart's not in them any longer either. Personally, I'd rather see him just post one when he's got something substantial to say and then use the time saved on TSDOAR. That way, when he did post a new video it's have the feel of a bit of an event about it, and we'd all know it would actually be worth watching.

Same here (also UK) for Minds. No sign of it yet. As per Paul's question, is this just a Diamond UK problem?

Or, Paul, go to the Cerebus Archive auction and bid on the signed copy of the REMASTERED MINDS, signed by the master.

Just sayin'.

Travis Pelkie said...

I stopped by my comic shop (in the US) and Minds was there for me (but I had other stuff I was buying). I'm not sure when it came out, because I haven't been there in a few weeks, and it wasn't on the Previews list whichever week it came out (I don't think, although I may not have seen last week's list).

So it's out there, anyway.

The answer for how to donate 0.77 was published last week. Go to PayPal.com and send money to a friend, plug in cerebustech@gmail.com and donate whatever amount you wish.

Little disappointed that nobody has coined "The 77-Cent Solution" yet...

Hi Eric!
Followed your instructions exactly and guess what? It worked! So thank you. No more $1.00 donations done 7 times. Lol.

Page 45 told me It will be out by the end of June. Apparently there’s been a sticker problem on the back of the books and that had to be rectified so they could be released in the Uk.I was told this about three weeks ago.

That's news to me!

I stopped by at Gosh! in London today for my usual Wednesday visit and found the remastered Minds there waiting for me. Thanks to the staff there for persisting with my order.

No problems or amendments to the back cover's price box that I can see. It didn't have any kind of special UK-only sticker covering it or anything like that, but simply gives the US price and the ISBN number/bar code in the usual way. This information's printed directly on the book's rear cover, and presumably identical to the info carried by US copies.

Hey Anonymous!

Thanks for the confirmation. As I said, I would have heard if there was an error with the barcode (which, hey, is expensive to print cover-ups for! And also, was approved by Diamond beforehand. Trust me, they let me know if I've done something wrong :) )

So yeah, there are probably the "normal" Diamond UK supply issues...but please do persist :) There ARE copies out there!

Tim P said...

Thanks. Page 45 had my copy delivered in the UK this week.
