BIG BROADCAST’s Stories Behind The Stories
Nine is the magic number here at ComicMix – nine days until the giant ENTER key is pressed and ComicMix Phase Two launches (sounds like a prop from the old BatCave, huh?). If I said things are busy, that would be an understatement, but we DO have the time to share a few things with you, following up on news heard this week on The Big ComicMix Broadcast:
• If you want to get a copy of that (one time only) Steve Canyon revival, here is the information direct from the folks at the USAF: "People outside the newsstand radius can buy single copies by calling our customer service department (800.368.5718) or sending e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Each issue will cost $3 (plus $1.50 shipping) the week the paper is on the newsstand. Thereafter, it’ll cost $5 plus shipping."
• Feel an inner flair for clothing design? The place to go might be here, It’s the home for Viper Comics and their new Sketch 86 line of t-shirts, plus it ‘s where you can submit your own designs for cash and prizes.
• Shades of the original “soap" operas! Mobile and broadband content provider GoTV Networks introduced the initial chapter of a 10-episode made-for-broadband series with Tide laundry detergent called Crescent Heights (as in the West LA neighborhood). Available on here among other places. Ther series features the work of writer Mike Martineau from Rescue Me.
This week, look for more previews of the features debuting here free on ComicMix on 10/2. Meanwhile on The Big Broadcast, we’ll let those creators tell you about their projects in their own worlds! And do we have to tell you it’s going to be a BIG week: Halo 3, the return of Family Guy, Heroes and Smallville and more – and, wait until you see what’s coming to comic stores in justa few days!
