This method can also applies to the indipendent comic cartoonists who can group together and start accepting orders. (I think Nate had done this before - recieving orders by e-mails. - Nate, was it a success?). This will increase their marketting ability and by this term, they can takes order from outside US. They can use credit card facilities or taking checque - oversea or US based.
Anyway, this is just my idea.

Hi, Groop. Here's the latest from the Sergio-Mark World...
The next mini-series from Dark Horse will be Sergio's sequel to LOUDER
THAN WORDS -- black-and-white, no dialogue, no Mark. I forget the
name at the moment. This will be followed by another four-issue GROO
extravaganza. We don't have a sub-title for it yet but it's about the
Dark Horse is about to clear a lot of older comics out of its
warehouse and will be offering them to dealers via the big
distributor, Diamond. Ordinarily, stores get their comics at a 55%
discount but they'll now have a chance to get a lot of back issues for
a slightly larger discount. This will include issues (not paperbacks)
of BOOGEYMAN, BLAIR WHICH and the first few GROO mini-series, among
other Dark Horse books. This means that your local shop may be
getting a fresh supply of them at "new comic" prices.
Sergio and Stan Sakai will be attending the Mid-Ohio Con in November.
M.E. will not. As a matter of fact, I have no convention plans at
all, save for next year's San Diego affair.
That's all for now.
