Things to do with comics you don’t want…
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.
