The Gosh! Authority 04.01.18
Happy New Year, all!
The January Sale is upon us! Yes, from the 2nd - 31st January we'll be running our usual price-busting extravaganza, with 1000's of reduced graphic novels and childrens books going on sale throughout the month on our sale table, as well as a whopping 50% off all of our back issues. Stupid bargains to be had, people!
So remember how we did things last week, what with us running a bit of a skeleton staff and being manically busy? Well, same story this week, so we'll be doing another abbreviated number. As before, I'll pop a link on each title to take you to Previewsworld for more information. Normal service will be resumed next week!
