Raijin Comics #1 to street on December 4th, price drops.

Gutsoon! has signed a distribution deal with Diamond Distributions, the world's largest distributor of English-language comic books and graphic novels, that will see copies of Gutsoon!'s Raijin Comics weekly anthology delivered to comic book stores throughout North America.

The new distribution deal has somewhat delayed their original target street date that was vaguely stated as "November." The first issue of Raijin Comics will be available on December 4th, 2002.

Gutsoon! has also announced that they will be lowering the cover price for the anthology. Originaly announced at $6.95 per issue ($361 a year if individually purchased), the price has been lowered to $4.95 an issue ($257 a year).

However, Fujin Magazine, the Anime & Manga news magazine that was originally to be bundled with Raijin Comics as an insert, will no longer be a free insert and will be available separately for $.99 a issue.

Subscribers on the other hand will still receive Fujin bundled with their weekly issue of Raijin comics. Subscription rates vary from $3.95 an issue to $4.95 an issue.
