Monkey Mailing

I noticed yesterday that, while there are over 1400 people who visit this blog daily, there are only 100 people who are signed up for the Big Monkey Comics "What's Shipping" Service.

It's a free, non-invasive service that sends you an e-mail each week of what's shipping from the various companies. Naturally, this info is already available on-line for those who want to look for it.

But judging from the number of calls that comic book stores get asking questions like, "Did Vibe: Sword of Detroit come out this week?", the Big Monkey thought people might appreciate just getting an e-mail that lets them know what's new on the stands. So we made something that does that; that's how much the Monkey loves you.

The e-mail you'll get looks something like this:

Ooo. Pretty.

Anyway, as I said, it's free and we won't sell your e-mail address to the Scientologists or the Viagra Manufacturers Association. To sign up for the service, just go to the Big Monkey website and put your e-mail address in this box:

Then you'll no longer be in the dark at Recess when all the cool kids are talking about what comics are coming out that week.

So did Vibe:Sword of Detroit come out this week?

Good pitch. I'll sign up.

I think one could count JLA Classified this week as "Vibe: Sword of Detroit".

For people like me, who check email rarely but are on the web all the goddamn time, Diamond posts its shipping lists at: on Monday. They post it in this format:

replacing "MMDDYY" with the month, day, and year of that week's Wednesday. If you're really eager to know the shipping list (or bored at the office, like I usually am), you can use that format to see the shipping schedule a couple of hours before Diamond's webmonkeys get the links on the Shipping page.

I wish I could have recess... you don't know what you got until it's gone. *sigh*

I signed up because I'm too lazy lately to go to diamond's website. Thanks!

I signed up, but it's either not been coming or coming a week late. To give y'all the benefit of the doubt, what have I been doing wrong?

It's been what we've been doing wrong. It'll be fixed next week, Bully.
