  1. If the merger does go through, it’s ATT’s influence that we should be on the lookout for. As well, corporate leverage when making deals with other companies. Personally, I do my best to cut the tether from the likes of Bell and Rogers here locally. There’s enough media out there that the failed Shomi from Rogers was never a tempting offer. The average phone plan price here in North America is about $80 per month, while in most other places it’s $40 or less. I suspect the added value of content wont be a “value” at all, but just another revenue stream. So you guys are right… this changes nothing for people like me. At $85.4B, ATT would be paying a 35% premium (as of last Thursdays closing price) for TW so TW stakeholders are happy. But, ATT will be looking to make up that premium from the pockets of their customers, assuming they can execute, Question is, when or can a company become too big?

  2. Where to begin? Diamond is still actively running the Halloween ComicFest, which has been at the front of Previews for the last six months. You can get 25 mini comics for $5, or $0.20 each to hand out at your door instead of candy. Any retailer ordering comics through Diamond knows this…

    How would having a Halloween party at a comic shop encourage people to buy comics and give them out instead of candy, or promote the comic book industry? Superhero costumes have been part of the zeitgeist since Superman first appeared, and while many people want to dress up as Deadpool or Wonder Woman it has nothing to do with them reading comics.
