It's been a few weeks since the Criminal announcement went public, and a few days since the October solicit for issue 1 hit, and I'm still finding tons of people who haven't seen the 5 page teaser Sean and I specially crafted to sell readers and retailers on this book, even though it was widely broadcast on newsarama and other places. So, I'm taking it to the people!
And then, email it to everyone you know who likes good comics, and post the link on every message board you can find. ;)
And, if you're a true friend, print out a copy and bring it in to your local store to show your comics retailer, too. I'm going out big to retailers in the next few weeks, but having customers come in with the preview for them will make a HUGE difference. It's a tough market right now for anything outside superheroes, and while I think we'll do okay, better safe than sorry.
Anyone who does either of these things, though, please email me at email@example.com and let me know, and I'll see that you get something cool for helping us out.
