I hope to be able to let everyone know about the new job I’ve accepted early next week, so keep an eye on the site Monday morning. On the bright side, the new position will keep me active in the comics industry, while also allowing me some time to freelance here and there. It’s also a significant step up in a variety of ways, so I’m eagerly anticipating the chance to tell you about it.
However, the new job makes it a necessity for Jessica and I to move into the New York City metro area and back-burner our plans to head to Chicago (which had already semi-stalled when the ComicMix deal fell through). But the positives far outweigh the negatives… and I’m looking forward to telling you all about it.
In preparation for our move, though, my comics purge continues. I’ve been lucky to have a few great people around the industry mention the auction (I’m looking at you, Sean T. Collins and Tom Spurgeon), and that’s encouraged me to keep packaging everything up and posting it on eBay. I really don’t want to carry these boxes to the next apartment, folks. I’m posting another 8-10 auctions each day, so come back regularly for new stuff you can buy on the cheap.
