DC Comics To Make 141 Of Their Rebirth Titles Returnable

Posted by April 14, 2016 Comment

dc-rebirth-new-850x560I believe this is the biggest returnable programme made to the direct market by one publisher in its entire history. 141 separate DC Comics titles and that’s not including the variant covers.

That’s the first 6 issues (including Rebirth specials) of all the bi-weekly titles.

And the first 3 issues (including Rebirth specials) of all the monthly titles.

Which means that retailers can order as many as they like, safe in the knowledge that those they cannot sell, they can rip the covers off and return to DC Comics for a refund.

A similar returnable programme was arranged by DC for the New 52 launch and for the recent Vertigo new title launch, though not as generous or extensive as this.

It will also give retailers a lot more data regarding what does and doesn’t sell in their store, if they can test the limits with this exercise.

Although for some it will just be too much like hard work. Here are the returnable titles.

Twice monthly titles preceded by a REBIRTH #1 special:

  • AQUAMAN: REBIRTH #1 and AQUAMAN #1-5
  • BATMAN: REBIRTH #1 and BATMAN #1-5
  • THE FLASH: REBIRTH #1 and THE FLASH #1-5
  • GREEN ARROW: REBIRTH #1 and GREEN ARROW #1-5

  • JUSTICE LEAGUE: REBIRTH #1 and JUSTICE LEAGUE #1-5
  • SUICIDE SQUAD: REBIRTH #1 and SUICIDE SQUAD #1-5
