Hope you had a safe and happy holiday season, welcome to the new year! This will be our fourth year of operation.
Back in October 2016 I returned to working for Fan Expo again after a 3 year break from shows. Things have changed quite a bit since then as Fan Expo is now owned by Informa, PLC and has a lot more shows on the schedule — in Orlando (Megacon, Megacon Fan Days), Dallas (Fan Expo Dallas, Dallas Fan Days), Regina (Fan Expo Regina), Vancouver (Fan Expo Vancouver) and Toronto (Toronto ComiCON, Fan Expo Canada). As the comics coordinator that’s a busy annual schedule!
In order to free up my schedule – as of January 1, 2016 I’ve downsized the services that the Comic Book Lounge provides.
We have decided to stop carrying new comic book issues, instead we have worked out an arrangement with online subscription service All New Comics and a few local shops to transfer our comic subscriptions to these services and will work with these new providers to ensure our customers continue to get the service they have grown accustomed to. This transfer took place with comics that arrived this week, January 6th.
We are continuing to order books, magazines and specialty items for our customers and we will be a presence at local shows in 2016 – including the Toronto ComiCON in March and at Fan Expo Canada in September. We still have an extensive inventory of books and novelty items available for special order.
