Comics’ Katrina Support Ramps Up

Diamond has joined DC in a pledge of general support for retailers affected by Hurricane Katrina, without going to deeply into what that means and who is eligible. There is an interesting list of area codes with UPS service interrupted that should give you an idea that Diamond will be paying close attention to which stores will qualify for some help. Also, the article names a pair of stores that are considered complete loses, neither of which is the store in New Orleans I swear has to have been under several feet of water at one point, if not still -- that just goes to show how early things still are in terms of finding out what happened. Newsarama has a list of various benefits and the like being planned. I didn't see this one in my quick scan, plus there's Warren Craghead's pledge to create art that we ran here on Sunday.
