  • You Brits will just have to read the electronic version. Some people prefer that anyway.

      Or they could get them as back issues overseas. I would not put up with having to get the electronic version, myself.

        I'm a collector as well as a reader. I have no interest in digital comics and would never buy one; you're not actually ending up with a physical product you can own. Why should we be unable to buy the books? It's bad enough that most of us here in the UK can't buy IDW's Doctor Who titles, books actually based on a British TV property, due to licensing restrictions!

          The only problem with that is the huge shipping cost when buying books direct from the US. It costs about four times what it would if buying from a European country.

          • Who is your favorite cover artist of Dynamite's Warlord magazines?

            Kaor,

            With all the artists and variant covers...which is your favorite? This is an opinion question, there is no right answer.

            Mine is Joe Jusko. I love the way he draws Dejah Thoris! They remind me of the old "Creepy" and "Eerie" covers. Love the artwork.

            My next favorite is Ale Garza. I find his arwork to be more comic book style, but I really enjoy his facial expressions...almost playful.

            • Tony, you need to make international friends. Find someone willing to trade US books (and other stuff) you can't get in England (or wherever) for UK titles that are hard to find over here. This system works well enough for fans of American comics/TV shows living in Japan to trade with manga/anime/tokusatsu fans in the US. Sometimes the biggest problem for someone an ocean away is not knowing about all the cool stuff that is available over there (same with you not knowing about stuff we may consider common as dirt), but since you already know what you want, you just need to find someone who needs something from you. So, step one, identify stuff available to you that may not be available (at least easily) to Americans -- hint, this works even better when it comes to currently out-of-print stuff. Then try to figure out what Americans might want. You might be surprised. You don't export as much entertainment stuff as we Americans do, so you probably have the home field advantage, as it were. The exchange rate is a hurdle you'll have to overcome, but it can be done.

              Like, I'd be willing to work out a deal to mail stuff to someone in the UK in exchange for getting some crazy Gerry Anderson gear that's hard to get here. Just an example. One thing that kinda sucks is that we don't use the same video standards (NTSC in the US vs. PAL in UK), even if you have a region-free DVD player. Not a problem with printed material though, since we both read English. Doesn't have to be a straight trade, or same-for-same deal either. Just find something someone an ocean away wants and can't get easily.

              • That's actually not a bad idea! Though I'm still hoping the ERB problem can be resolved without UK based fans losing out...

                      • I guess I'll answer, since Comichero did not start this thread. Joe Jusko is my favorite.

                          I have noticed that Hollywood tends to steal many good British television ideas, then rebroadcast them as US inventions. Blu-ray is not subject to the old NTSC/PAL limitations, by the way, since the resolution exceeds both of the old formats. Region codes still apply, however.

                            I quite understand! Clearly you haven't had to lug several thousand of those things from duty station to duty station. I eventually gave most of mine away.
