LOS ANGELES, CA (May 13, 2019) – BOOM! Studios announced today the company’s return to the 2019 Diamond Retailer Summit as a Premier sponsor and revealed the retailer exclusive merchandise debuting at the show.
Retailers who attend the Diamond Retailer Summit will receive exclusive Faithless and Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers variant covers for free that will only be available at this conference. The retailer-exclusive merchandise available from BOOM! Studios’ includes:
Faithless #1 Diamond Retailer Summit Edition Variant Cover featuring a black and white version of Paul Pope’s cover for the sold-out Faithless #1.
Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers #20 Diamond Retailer Summit Edition Variant Cover featuring an Alpha-One character design by Dan Mora (Once and Future, Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
Throughout the weekend, attendees will also have an opportunity to speak directly with Filip Sablik, President, Publishing & Marketing, Spencer Simpson, Manager, Sales, and Morgan Perry, Retail Sales Coordinator, about exciting new and upcoming titles from acclaimed imprints BOOM! Studios, BOOM! Box, KaBOOM!, and Archaia, as well as the revolutionary BOOM! Guarantee program, a free opt-in program for direct market retailers.
The BOOM! Guarantee program allows retailers an unparalleled free returnability on select new release single issues each month via Diamond affidavit. To provide these retailers with a chance to invest in every new series without any risk, BOOM! Studios offers this returnability through at least the second issue of these select series, without any order minimums, order matching, or stripped cover returns..
Earlier this year, BOOM! Studios introduced a groundbreaking new benefit exclusive to the BOOM! Guarantee program – which remains 100% free to any participating retailers – a minimum of (2) graphic novel releases each month will be fully returnable, an opportunity previously only available to the bookstore market. This is the first time that any North American comic book publisher has offered full returnability via affidavit on graphic novels to the Direct Market and, like the current single issue returnability offered through the BOOM! Guarantee program, will not require any minimum orders or returning of physical product. You can find more information on the BOOM! Guarantee program at http://www.boom-studios.com/boom-guarantee/.
