Interesting. Too bad they're not selling it. I would love to have this, but I'm not an SJA subscriber and I'm not going to NYCC. I would pay money for it though, if I could.

Too bad these companies are dumb for not exploiting such opportunities to the fullest. It's not like they want my money.

one-shot means they are trying to sell the magazine. They are selling it.

Hey, looks like I'll get something from those guys at SJA. I mean who's bright idea was it to go digital. I miss my printed copy, in fact thats actually my account name for SJA. I was also supposed to be getting an Egyptian God Card....never got it. I hate how everything is going digital

Well, it should show up on eBay. If it doesn't, then things could get quite complex.

As much as I want to defend Viz's decision... yeah. This seems awfully silly. I'm personally not a fan of "limited editions," "con exclusives," etc.
Why screw over so many potential customers who can't travel the distance or who aren't subscribers/members/whathaveyou? As a business model, isn't it rather obvious you're willfully limiting your profit pool? Rolling Eyes

It's not just this, it's the whole industry as a whole.

I hate to say it, but yeah, I'm gonna have to side against Viz on this one too. I would love to get this, just for Sachie-chan, because Toriyama and Katsura are both in my Top 3 favorite manga authors list. So any collaboration between the two is awesome in my book.

That said though, is it actually 'Sachie-chan Good!' like they're calling it apparently? I always saw it referred to as 'Sachie-chan Guu' or the like. Not that I ever had any idea what 'Guu' meant.
