Dear friends -
I wanna say thank you on giving us all the support and input on the Street Fighter project! This is a rare time that I would actually need your help!
The initial order numbers of SF #1 just came in, and the amount the comic retailers has put in is UNREALISTICALLY LOWER than we expect… I have to say, if these are the final sale numbers, we might not be able to keep this alive for much too long…
The state of comic book retail nowadays is not healthy. I am pretty sure that with these numbers, this book will get sold out very soon. And a lot of people who wants the book will miss out on it. Yes, it will become an instant collectible like the SF#0 and become hot on EBAY, but that is not going to help in the long run. I want to make sure everyone who wanted a copy can get it a the cover price. The problem here seems that the Comic Book Shop Owners do not have confidence in this project.
We have to understand that the past track record of SF books has not been good. So the store owners are not willing to order more books on a SF title. So, we have to tell them this time, it is different. This time, we are doing a REAL book that fans (including ourselves at UDON!) would be proud of holding a copy in our hand. Here is where you guys comes in.
PLEASE call all you local stores and tell them you want to see the SF book. Tell your friends to do it! Tell every SF fan out there to go to their local store to reserve a copy. Retailers normally only get enough for their pull list nowadays and they won’t order too many extras. So we gotta tell them what we need to give them confidence in this title!
If you need the number for your local shop, call toll free 1-888-COMIC-BOOK (1-888-266-4226) to find one!
