Kaare,
Before I go any further, I’d really like to see more samples of your work. I can tell from the web that you’re really talented. You have the technical ability to make it. I think that your biggest problem will be surviving the first year to 18 months of doing comics full-time. I’d love to [...]

I talked to Diamond yesterday. Had a great response. They are sending me a new  solicitation kit ASAP which I need for putting together a calendar.
I took copious notes, but the best thing I learned that I really didn’t already know is that  Diamond has a list of Top 500/Top 1000 indy-friendly retailers. For 15-cents [...]

I’m all for the Web page idea! Tupelo can handle the e-mail although I would rather it be over an ISP than through our friends at AOL.

My brother/business partner has convinced me that our future lies in not converting other  small business owners into design clients as much as it does doing webstores for products  that we can get distribution on, and then becoming a showcase client for you guys with  15-20 stores, and *THEN* go for the store design market.
Also, [...]

Did you demand overnight shipment from a Diamond employee? I have done  that on several occasions and it works wonders. JO always worked  miracles for me.

I agree. I was talking with my insurance agent today (upping my life insurance - scary stuff!) and he’s a baseball card nut. His daughters are into the beanies. I said pretty much the same thing to [...]

Truth be told, the 10 Full Color Wizard ads would be most effective.
Actually, the ashcan idea is perfect, so long as we receive a dozen or so.. i.e. enough to give out.  So often we receive a single ashcan, which helps me decide if “T think” i can sell it, but really doesn’t allow my [...]

$60,000 on Wizard ads or cut a check to each retailer for $20?

Thanks for your note. Your answer was exactly what I was fishing for. Instead of spending the $60,000 on Wizard ads (ha!) I would rather cut a check to each retailer for $20.
I was thinking in bundles of 10 or so so people could give them to the customers they thought might sub-up  [...]

Wow. Other than “Right on!, Daddy-O” I would only add that the 70% of our sales are COMIC pre-order  sales, not pre-order Magic, Anime, Warhammer, nor Beanie Baby, but I guess that could be inferred from the rest of your letter.
Why risk my capital on the thousand cuts when the window of opportunity is so [...]
