Again, thanks to Widgett from http://www.lastcomicsite.com/ for the news:
DC is throwing huge weight on the SANDMAN: P&N trade. A CD that has their entire backlog of trades on it, with art, samples, info, the whole bit was given to retailers at San Diego. The next version will be available to the general public.
“Once all retailer comments and suggestions are taken into account, an
updated version 1.1 of the disc is intended to be distributed free to the public this fall in a special edition of THE SANDMAN: PRELUDES & NOCTURNES TP. At that time, DC will also distribute one copy of Version 1.1 to each retailer who places qualifying orders for DC backlist books in 2001.”
