I'm giving away some first volumes of manga, see my blog for details.
You can see a few pages where some content is being added to the Comics4Libraries Wiki.
I've set up a Wiki designed to collect lists and reviews of comics recommended for libraries. Check it out, let me know if you have any suggestions, and feel free to register for an account and start adding your own reviews!
I think everyone knows that lisnews' Shoe is having some problems with her health. I was thinking it would be nice if a bunch of us got together and sent her a little something. I have a couple ideas, but we could collectively get together over e-mail and come up with a final plan. I think that if several of us chipped in around 3-5 dollars (which hopefully we would be able to manage even on librarian salaries) we could get her something Very Cool.

I can't moderate! I have a gajillion moderator points and no comments out there to mod...it doesn't really matter to me but I think that this is one area where the Slashcode doesn't scale as well to a smaller number of users. With fewer people using the site, there are less flamewars/comments, hence less work for those who would be happy to moderate if they were so inclined.
