Column fodder: introduces a weekly column by Steven Bates, manager of Bookery Fantasy in Fairborn, Ohio:

"Future columns will deal with specifics of comic, games, toy, and licensed product retailing, some geared around the job, others around the products; many about the current events, trends, controversies, and movers and shakers making the news within the industry. We'll talk about comics, toys, trading cards, movies, and games. A lot of it will be opinion. You might read an interview one week, a review the next, a rant the following week, and a reminiscence after that. Hopefully, you'll not read an apology and cancellation notice from [ICv2 Owner] Milton Griepp anytime in the near future."
