- Lots of stores can sell things furries are interested in. Delete unless some sort of reciprocal interaction with furries. (ie. Do they go to furry conventions?) --Rat 09:45, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
- Delete. They seem to be coming from the SF&F angle even in regards to FurBid-SF. http://mikescomics.livejournal.com/tag/andromeda -- Sine 16:18, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
- Working with Shanda Fantasy Arts to distribute Shanda The Panda and expand distribution of their other titles, especially in light of the latest comics distribution situations. Also re: those situations, we're looking at potential of other furry titles for distribution and retail, including things like new Tall Tails, and will gladly try to special order items where many others do not. All in-stock issues of Shanda we have listed on FurBid when we list...not our fault they aren't all in stock anymore, or we've sold out of some by using FurBid-SF, or that some sci-fi titles have more issues/releases and more backlist availability, or that other items go exclusive with a distributor that hasn't worked for us, but we do what we can. Also, look at most recent Shanda (#48) and see us mentioned inside front cover, as we have always actively supported this community, moreso than many. Actively looking to buy and trade collections of furry comics, and have selected prints. Many things have simply sold from stock, so aren't listed on our site anymore...so why should they still be there?...we're being penalized here for our success in the furry community?! Trying to make an opportunity to attend appropriate furry conventnions as dealers (and potential distributors), but timing and issues of costs haven't allowed this recently, and, again, not lack of interest, but of appropriate opportunities especially within our area of the world. Had seen the previous listing you felt was ad copy, and it wasn't added by us. Surprised you'd see fit to take it down. Our comics business pre-dates our sci-fi lines by about three years, back to 1976, but we have to make allowance for proportion of sales. There's a bit more "under the hood" here, and sorry to see zealous eyes not giving their own "reciprocal" support, but think an objective view might not be one that writes us off...unless you feel the community benefits from less information and a smaller community, which seems a bit demanding and contrary to a Wiki in the first place. 18.104.22.168 21:47, 3 May 2009 (UTC)Michael Salvo, Mike's Comics
