DC DIRECT OFFERS MASTER CASE ORDERING ON POSTERS

Starting with the July Previews, DC Direct will solicit posters in a new way. Retailers now may choose between ordering single copies of a poster or ordering a master case containing six copies of a poster for the price of five.

“The pricing on the master case offers a substantial savings to retailers,” says Jeff Trojan, VP — Business Development, DC Direct. “We recommend using the sixth poster for display, as customers will be more likely to make a purchase when they can see the art at full size.”

Master case ordering begins with the BATMAN: ALL STAR POSTER, featuring art by Jim Lee and Scott Williams, and the NIGHTWING: REFLECTIONS POSTER, featuring art by Ryan Sook. Both will be solicited in the July Previews.

REMINDER: SALES INCENTIVES FOR THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #14

As a reminder, THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #14 (MAY070162), the second issue of the special 3-part FLASH event, is solicited in the May Previews with a special sales incentive.

Retailers may qualify to make full returns on THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #14 by placing final orders equal to or greater than 200% of their orders for THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #10 (JAN070287). This offer is valid only on orders placed by the Final Order Cutoff date of June 28.

REMINDER: SPECIAL SALES INCENTIVE ON GOOD AS LILY
