I thought I'd check 'em out again, so I placed preorders for both with my Internet comics retailer, but several months have passed and they're listed as "not arrived."

Have they gone the way of Wizard and Toy Fare? :?

I read somewhere that they are no longer monthly and that they were being published 8 times a year. If I remember correctly.

Thanks. I've been pre-ordering them since February through Westfield Comics and have yet to receive an issue. They probably won't be around much longer.

I just bought a new issue of Lee's!

I had assumed that Lee's & Tomart's were on their way out.

I'm sure it's just a matter of time.

I just read somewhere that Lees is now quarterly. I don't remember where I read it.

I just got off the phone with Tomart and found out that the next issue (201) will be released at the end of summer. Following that the releases with be every other month. So, 6 issues per year.

Thanks for the valuable info, jediblood. It's great to know that they're still around in some form.

You're welcome. They said that they have been having advertising issues.

Yeah, I just received issue #201 through Westfield Comics.

Tomart's is aiming towards going back to doing eight issues a year, I believe. Quarterly sounds like a more realistic shoot at this stage. I'll support 'em through the end for nostalgia's sake. Those old mags were awesome.

Their website still lists some of the early issues for sale at $7 each. Wish I could remember the number of the one with all of the Hasbro employees who served as models for the various 3 3/4 inch G.I. Joe line head sculpts. I'm still trying to track that one down.

I hope Tomart is still in action since I just subscribed lol.

I wish Lees was still around. That was my favorite toy mag

Yeah, Lee's first appeared about a year before Tomart's. I began reading with the very first issue. Those early ones were cool to me because they had a nice fanzine feel to them.
