400 episodes of this? Damn.
We “acquired” 2 new back issue cabinets. After days of work, they’re not what we expected.
November was not a great sales month and it ended on a really bad week. Construction + snow = a less than $100 day (for the first time in many years).
Patrick’s car need over $1900 of work done in November.
Subscriber visits over the Holiday season and the GoFundMe for Cave Comics.
Speaking if subscribers, it’s time to drop more of them out of our pull and hold service.
The Mutiny, a Chicago icon dive bar, is closing after 30 years.
The new Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic looks pretty good.
Publisher output the week of Christmas is not that great this year.
