January 27, 2009 – DC Comics is happy to announce our involvement in the next ComicsPRO meeting with a full day of programming!
ComicsPRO will convene from March 19 through 21 in Memphis, Tennessee. DC’s day of programming will take place March 19 and feature several special guests along with DC, Vertigo and DC Direct presentations. Among those scheduled to attend and taking part in discussions on a number of topics will be Paul Levitz (DC President & Publisher), Dan DiDio (Senior Vice President — Executive Editor DCU), Georg Brewer (Vice President — Design and DC Direct Creative), Karen Berger (Senior Vice President — Executive Editor Vertigo), Steve Rotterdam (Senior Vice President — Sales & Marketing), John Cunningham (Vice President — Marketing), Bob Wayne (Vice President — Sales), Vince Letterio (Director — Direct Sales) and Fletcher Chu-Fong (Manager — Events & Retailer Services). We’re also excited to announce that DC talent and best-selling writer Geoff Johns (the upcoming FLASH: REBIRTH and BLACKEST NIGHT) will appear at the event.
For every retailer who registers by February 9, DC will ship them one Watchmen theatrical poster. In addition, all retailers registered by that date will be entered in a raffle for a theatrical Watchmen lobby standee.
DC Comics greatly looks forward to this opportunity to discuss ideas about the industry and further our relationship with the retailer community at this event and we hope to see you soon!
