ARE THERE CREEPERS IN MY LOCAL POST OFFICE?

Recent election-related chaos and the holiday season have led to substantial delays in mail delivery through the United States Postal Service as well as other carriers. And some of you charming readers have warmly reached out to raise issues about your issues not arriving in a timely fashion. (If you have experienced this issue and you ordered multiple issues, please check the bag before making an issue of your issues as they may have been mailed together.)
We trust the overall ethos of the USPS, but let’s just say it – agents of repression and enemies of free speech are everywhere these days it seems, and they LIVE to deprive you of thoughts and ideas that they don’t like. And many, if not most, of them aren’t lurking around the fringes but operating at the heart of our institutions. Which would rightly make you ask yourself,

ARE THERE CREEPERS IN MY LOCAL POST OFFICE?

These types of people may even consider it their moral imperative to stop you from getting your mitts on “problematic” materials like Flip City, LARPing as guardians of the postal routes and doing society a solid by disposing of your property. (They may even go so far as to call this magazine mean names and claim that its website sucks.)
This comes as no surprise to anyone with an eye on current election hijinks.
And while we’d like to think that said delays are due to delighted postal employees unable to resist opening your envelopes to read the latest Flip CIty, we have to admit that it’s unlikely.

So, is shipping FLIP CITY in a clear plastic mailer a liability? Should we consider shipping in paper
envelopes instead to eliminate the chance of Postal Kareners disappearing or black-holing your every precious issue? Would this cut down on missing issues and save us money?!

Alternately, is there anyone out there who would prefer we ship in paper for their own personal privacy?
Really? Are we that embarassing? Is this some kind of guilty pleasure you don’t want your friends knowing about? If so, have you considered that you might need new friends?!

Folks, we don’t think we’re some HOT TO TROT operation who’s so rebellious and edgy that THEY’ve just got to come after us. We’re just a normal, mainstream American comics rag. And that’s the problem. So why should we hide our cool covers in shame? We created it and we sell it quite shamelessly. So all things considered,
we’d rather replace your errant issue than hide our work behind a white, or manila, barricade. For now anyways.
