Status Report for Wednesday, 1 April 2020 (No foolin’)

I need a more interesting phrase than “status report” but that’s what it is. We’re skipping April Fool’s day. I hope you don’t mind.

There are SEVEN different items in this report! I numbered ’em for clarity.

1. Tony will be IN THE SHOP three days this week: TODAY, Wednesday, from noon-4pm, as well as Friday (4/3), and Saturday (4/4) from noon to 5:30pm to take phone orders and answer questions. And, we are responding to email and voicemail 7 days a week! 617-492-6763 or millionyearpicnic@yahoo.com. Press inquiries WELCOME!

2. Jason Wiser will be running his Intro to Comix Creation ONLINE class for kids AGAIN next week, Monday, 6 April 2020 through Friday, 10 April 2020 from 1-2pm. He’s also considering a next level class! (Let us know via email to millionyearpicnic@yahoo.com if you and your kids might be interested in the next level!) More details on signing up for the basic class here: https://www.themillionyearpicnic.com/intro-to-comix-creation-online-class-for-kids-again/

3. In addition to the classes, Tony is still delivering comics to Cambridge, Somerville, Medford, Arlington, and Belmont with a minimum purchase of $15. He’s going farther afield for larger orders. We’re also packing comics to ship via USPS to remote locations! Unfortunately, we’ve had to discontinue curbside pickup for the time being.

4. If you want to support us, you can buy a gift certificate via our PayPal using blanton7772000@yahoo.com (again, DO NOT EMAIL that address; you will not get a response). Just put the details in the note section PayPal provides. You have THREE options: (1) we can mail out gift certificates via the United States Postal Service, (2) we can hold them at the shop until we’re open again, or (3) we can put them in with an order of comics/graphic novels and deliver them to your house… let us know your preference in the note.

5. If you’re looking for prose books, we may be able to order them as well since we have access to a couple of distributors that are still open who do both graphic novels and prose books.

6. GREAT NEWS! OUR VOICEMAIL IS FIXED! You can leave us voice messages! We’ll even listen to them!

EMAIL LIST UPDATE:

IF YOU HAVE __NOT__ SIGNED UP FOR OUR GOOGLE GROUPS LIST, YOU WILL NO LONGER RECEIVE OUR SHIPLISTS VIA EMAIL!!!

Yahoo is making it difficult enough to use Yahoo Groups that we have switched to Google Groups. I sent EVERYONE on the list an invitation to the MillionYearPicnic GoogleGroup on December 10th. Fewer than 50 people have responded, which is making us really sad. That invitation has EXPIRED!
