Desert Wind Comics business update.
Desert Wind Comics, as well as most everyone in the comic collectible industry, has felt the impact of the CoronaVirus. Everyone has been affected either directly or indirectly with comic and collectible stores being closed or conventions being cancelled. For some of us, this is our livelyhood and for others it is our passion. In the end, it is our wishes and prayers that when this disaster is over we can all return to what brought us joy in this world.
With that said, Sharon and I would like to give everyone an update of what we at Desert Wind Comics and Celestial Comics are doing to allow the fans to continue enjoying getting your comic books and memorabilia signed. Most importantly the signings with comic creators are STILL going on. While adjustments and changes have had to be made, the signings that Desert Wind has become famous for are still happening.
With the dangers of the COVID-19 Virus looming, the staff at DWC working with CGC and Medical professionals have developed a safe means for creators, while in the safety of their homes, to sign fans books and memorabilia. Once signed, the upmost care is taken to get the books safely to CGC or returned to each owner.
While making sure as to the safety of both the creators as well as the DWC staff are maintained, the time it takes to finish these signings could be extended. The safety of all of those involved is paramount and the rushing of a signing will NOT happen. For safety reasons, no books or memorabilia will be accepted after the posted deadline. We will be looking to add additional signings to take place in the near future and you should continually check our Facebook pages and websites for these updated schedules and signings. Signing Desert Wind currently have scheduled include: John Romita, John Romita Jr, Larry Lieber, Joe Sinnott, Roy Thomas, Chris Claremont, Gerry Conway, Jim Starlin, Walt & Louise Simonson, and Al Milgrom.
During this timorous time, I wish to ask each of you to know the upmost care is being extended to you, your collectibles, our staff, CGC’s staff, and the creators. Thank you.
