Two days ago (October 29), ComiXpress posted this notice on their home page:
We’re not sure if everyone is aware of the situation, but being based in Northern NJ, ComiXpress is in the path of Hurricane Sandy. This is a 900-mile wide storm dubbed ‘Frankenstorm’ and is expected to bring 85mph winds and impact more than 50 to 60 million people. A State of Emergency has been declared in several states – including NJ – and power outages are all-but guaranteed in large areas.
We had a small crew come in this morning in the hopes of getting some work out ahead of the storm, only to find that nothing can ship today as there won’t be any pickups by the post office or UPS.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this is going to cause, and we will work with everyone to the best of our ability to catch up on orders and emails as quickly and efficiently as possible once the worst is over.To anyone in the path of the storm, stay safe, and we’ll see you on the other side!
There has been no further updates from ComiXpress. Much of Northern New Jersey has no power or Internet services and there had been flooding in the region. Power lines are down in the Dumont area and people have been told to remain indoors for their safety.
Last week, I re-ordered a new supply of The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan for the Christmas season and for the Mad Monster Party Convention that will be held March 22-24, 2013 from ComiXpress. No doubt, the damage from Hurricane Sandy will delay ComiXpress's orders a bit. Fortunately, I have enough copies of the travel guide on hand that should be adequate for any Christmas orders.
