Things to do with comics you don’t want…

Donate them to Juvenille Detention Centers in New Orleans.

Seemingly growing out of the hullaballoo about review copies over on Johanna's Comics Worth Reading comes a suggestion with some real forethought and, daggummit, heart. Colleen Mondor. Click that top link to see why you should do it.

And for the record, once you send a reviewer a review copy, it's theirs to do with as they like. The real interesting part for me is back in the original post the guy says:

I know you’ve never been a fan of my work…but despite that…I took my marketing guy’s advice and added you to our review copy list.

Just a word of advice. Fire your marketing guy. There's absolutely no benefit in getting ANOTHER bad review from someone who you know doesn't like your stuff. There's a reason movies predicted to be critical bombs don't have press screenings. It's self-destructive.

It's not a game wherein the goal is to make someone change their mind, and then you win.

Maybe that's just me though.
