The Febuary edition of Collector Times has and interview by Jamie Coville with Doug Simpson, manager of Paradise Comics “about the state of the industry, including the changes recently announced by Diamond Distributors.”

“I understand that Diamond is having to deal with a harsh economic reality and I know they are doing what they have to do to survive. Our shop has a very dedicated group of buyers and we know what will sell for us and what will sit on the shelf. I realize that some retailers are happy that they will not have as much work but some real quality books will be lost. I’ll just have to order directly from the publisher in those cases. “
