Default **** Dreamwave

That is astericks in my title but I am well peed off.

An e-mail from my supplier

Quote:
I'm afraid Dreamwave has decided it no longer wants to release the War Within preview book in the UK. I heard a rumour about it and rang Diamond Comics (my supplier) this morning who sadly confirmed it. They told me they had no idea why UK fans are getting shafted as no reason was given. All they knew was that they were told last month that they could sell the book, and now they are being told they can't.
what the ****!!!!!!

Question

Wasn't the Dreamwave license exclusive to the US/Canada only? If true, perhaps they were forced to cease future products from being exported...

or

They are ****heads.

No, I believe the UK and Europe are cool to get the TFWW series, and Armada. They're just being c**ts about the Preview. They should be ****ing stopped.

It would appear that the auto-censor is experiencing technical difficulties...

Does that mean I have to use civil language, now?

I probably should have re-read that one... I wouldn't have edited it, but it would have been nice to know... besides, is the c-word covered?

Yes, actually, I am. I just wasn't up at 9 in the morning, and I don't think any of the others were either. It's a Sunday. I'd rather have the TFWW preview than some extra material on Armada.

So Dreamwave lets people outside US understand that they can get the preview through Previews, which in my case meant that I could have got from my comic book shop. Then it´s not available Preview, and I get to know it through TF fansites, there is no explanation or apology from Dreamwave and about the only way to get it is Ebay or friends in US.
Now a UK company has got rights to make their own comic version of Armada. And I shouldn´t be teed off at Dreamwave? And the reason would be what?

Unhappy No WW for the UK?

Well thats what happens to those who have power over such a
large number of fans... they make you beg and beg and beg until
you die from it. These people make me bloody sick to my bloody
bones! (* See [link="www.robmeerman.co.uk"]devoted.to/oratoryhell[/link] for details on that remark *).

You understood a bit wrong. They´re not offering the WWI preview outside US/Canada. You can get the six normal issues though.

Don't worry about it, I think the reason we are more excited about WWI is because us Uk'ers have been subjected to more Furman and thus hold him iin high regards - That and the fact WWI will give him total freedom and not force him to sell certain toys, I mean include certain characters means the story should be the best thing to hit the tf universe for a long time

You insulted us (over-vengeful fanboys), made me think that you meant it wasn´t Dreamwave´s fault I couldn´t get the preview, seemed to suggest we ha no reason to be angry, didn´t mention anything about wanting the UK Armada imported to US and had no idea how to do it. Any miracle you got a verbal beating? No hard feelings after this though, just choose your words better.

I can sympathize your situation, not being from UK. And I don´t think every UK fan hates Armada. Many are actually excited.
