So, what do you think of the new format? Do you like the weekly release date blog rather than the monthly? Should I stick to the #1's I did in the monthly blog, or go all-in with all the books from all the publishers? Did you stop reading halfway through? If so, how did you find this message? Write to me ginny@fenixcomix.com and let me know what you think. This blog is for you, but without feedback I won't know what exactly you want to read. I hope to be informative and possibly a little entertaining once in a while. Maybe I will keep adding a short editorial here, just for fun. Help me find a format that works for YOU!
