Kray Z Comics and Stories 54: Black Friday

It’s been a month since the last episode because Joe and Cory have weird schedules, but it’s time for a new episode! How do they start? Talking about Thanksgiving TV specials!

They DO get to comics, mostly comics that after Flashpoint are no longer in continuity. After we roll through the ads, they get back to comics. Cory talks about Old Man Logan, and the conversation goes to DC’s new 52, DC’s weekly series, Frumpy the Clown and Joe’s car problems. They also discuss the “Regeneisis” reboot of the X-Men books. This actually leads to a discussion of the Marvel Adventure line and how Comics are available outside of comic shops.

They then change the discussion to comics sales, and how DC dominated the sales charts for October. This leads to a long discussion about what is going on with Marvel canceling mini-series, laying people off and announcing they will not carry much backstock and inventory. This leads to “Tales from the Shop” (sponsored by Chris B) about how shops dealt with Marvel sending their distribution and merging into Diamond. There’s then an ad for, another new sponsor. Ad-a palooza!

We end the show talking about Black Friday sales and how Joe was one of the first shops in the Twin Cities to actually have sales…and how it made the other comic shops FURIOUS!!  They also discuss how they sold back issues, how they decided what prices to use on back issues and how the back issue market has changed from the 80’s to today.

All this, and the usual shenanigans, crickets and stories of silliness!
