    Hey Whitechapel, Paul Sizer here, with a request for some assistance from the good people of these forums.

    My LITTLE WHITE MOUSE series was the first comic series I created solo, and in 2006 I gathered all the issues into a 448 page Omnibus Edition under my own Cafe Digital imprint. I was lucky enough to get it carried by Diamond Distribution, and it's been available for sale ever since.

    Last month, my service rep at Diamond offered to re-solicit the LITTLE WHITE MOUSE Omnibus Edition to the direct market, to try and generate some more interest in the book and get it back in the eyes of new fans that have discovered my work in the last few years. Understandably, Diamond wants to see the book do some decent order numbers, and based on that, they will agree to also re-solicit my other books (MOPED ARMY and B.P.M.) in upcoming months.

    So, here's the favor I'm asking; if it's within your means, and you like my work, it would be an incredible help for my self-publishing venture to have you place an order for my LITTLE WHITE MOUSE Omnibus Edition through your local comic shop. Ordering through your local store ensures that Diamond sees the numbers come directly from the Direct Market, as opposed to coming through Amazon, etc.

    The Diamond Order Code for the re-solicit of the LWM OMNIBUS EDITION is DEC100959 LITTLE WHITE MOUSE OMNIBUS EDITION
    If you bring these numbers into your local store, they can use those codes to order the book immediately. It's an all ages book, so with the holidays coming up, its a great gift for the young (or older) comic reader on your lists!

    I'm not asking you to order sight unseen either; you can actually sample the book in its entirety online at WebComics Nation.

    Here's a brief synopsis of the series from my website:
    “In deep space, a young girl’s survival will depend upon the strength of her heart.”
    Ten years ago, comic readers met Loo, a 16-year-old girl stranded on an automated satellite in deep space. Her story of coming-of-age in a harsh and unyielding environment became a fan-favorite book around the world. Now, the entire critically-acclaimed LITTLE WHITE MOUSE series is collected into this 448 page “Omnibus Edition”, including a new 4 page framing story "prequel" by series creator PAUL SIZER, and artistic contributions from artistic legends such as GEOF DARROW (Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot), DAVE JOHNSON (100 Bullets), LADRONN (Hip Flask), CHRIS SPROUSE (Tom Strong), JEFF MOY AND W.C. CARANI (Legion of Super Heroes), MARK CRILLEY (Akiko), MARK PAULIK (Chumba webcomic), MATT FEAZELL (Cynicalman), KARL ALTSTAETTER (Deity), JANE IRWIN (Vogelein), PAM BLISS (Paradise Valley Comics), and many others, this is the definitve collection for long-time fans and first time readers.


    The LITTLE WHITE MOUSE OMNIBUS EDITION is $24.95 for 448 pages. Comes to $0.05 a page, if that makes it seem more like a bargain.

    Thanks much for your help in advance. I know the economy is hard for everyone, but the community and support that exists on WHITECHAPEL has emboldened me to make this request to you all.
    Much appreciated,
    Paul

    I can vouch for the worthwhileness of Little White Mouse - it's a great read, and a bargain. Over 400 pages of good comics...

    I really enjoyed it!

    I'll give it a try! Sadly, my local comic shop is one of those ones that don't do individual orders and CERTAINLY no holds because they are "too big for that". They're pretty lazy even when I have teh Diamon code for them. But I'll go to the other side of town and order if I have to. :)

    How much is it?

    @Faux! No burning; just ordering. And thanks!

    Happily ordered because it means that I can stop trying to find them all in backissue bins.

    Thank you for posting this, Paul.

    Oda; the Diamond codes SHOULD be good all over the world, anywhere that gets comics via Diamond. Thanks for giving it a shot!

    Correct; it is for the upcoming next PREVIEWS, but I wanted to get the word out ahead of time so people could plan ahead.
    Better early than late, eh?
    And thanks!

    I shamed my store in to accepting a specific order! I've never known them to do this before! I'll be heading over there tomorrow with the code in hand to order my copy of the Omnibus. :)

    SHAME: When every other option is exhausted, the one solution that ALWAYS works!
    Thanks Robin!
