    I always want more stuff on the shelves, so I welcome their return, but I hope they can get past the horrible PR of the past: fighting over the ownership of Vampirella, the sudden closing of the company, and the unmentioned-in-this-article warehouse fire that destroyed most of the Fangoria-affiliated back stock. I trust Troy and his co-workers to try to put out quality product, but they have a steep hill to climb.

    Hey Alan,I appreciate the positive parts of your comments. :DYeah, it's been crazy at times, but the great thing about our guys is that we have always stuck together. I'd like to address a couple of points quickly:1) On Vampirella: Quick version here. Someone in the Fango structure was negotiating for the character, and we were told the deal was done when it wasn't. Scott was onstage at a Fango con, and someone literally said to him, "Hey, don't forget that we got Vampirella!", so it was announced. Reminder: Never announce anything anyone tells you onstage, except, perhaps, "Fire!" and "Don't take the brown acid." At any rate, that whole thing was quickly resolved. Scott and Bon (at Harris) were cool, and it was all good. More was made of that situation by a couple of bloggers than it was, honestly.2) The Shutdown was linked to company-wide problems. As you may know, Fangoria Entertainment entered bankruptcy. The new owner, Tom DeFeo of The Brooklyn Company, was actually the man who got Scott to launch the comics in the first place. As soon as the company was his, he called. Fangoria Graphix is an important piece to him, or else we wouldn't be doing this.3) Let me invoke the tagline of "The Killer" for this one: One wrong move by a forklift, one severed main, ten thousand burning issues of Fangoria publications. Yeah, that was a true disaster. But we actually have a plan to deal with that, too.As Bob pointed out in his article, the books that did come out received good notices, and we sold well in chain bookstores. We're optimistic about all of our new projects, and we only ask that you give 'em a look. And I will note that after the migration, the brand-new version of is now up. Enjoy. And thanks for the coverage!
