    For the listener whose name eludes me (I’m still in the throes of yesterday’s migraine, sorry!), the name of the (hopefully) soon-to-be-launched on-line marketplace for comics, graphic novels, DVD/BR, games,etc, is I spoke to these folks at last year’s NYCC, and it did seem that they had a pretty spiffy idea, but their site is not yet operational, but is still trumpeted for a Fall launch!

    Thanks guys, been um-ing and ah-ing about Journey for a while so I’ll definitely pick it up. And I’d never even heard of that Mighty Avenger collection, with Chris Samnee on art I will definitely check it out and let you know what I thought! Thanks heaps!
