When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down comic shops across the country, BOOM! Studios announced a retailer support services program that included special variant covers, support, and more. Today, the publisher expanded the program with full returnability through December. All items shipping from September 2nd, 2020 through December 30th, 2020 will be fully returnable via affidavit so retailers can order with confidence.
BOOM! Studios will also provide at least two new previously unannounced “Thank You” variants every month through December free to qualifying Diamond accounts. These will appear on two different series each month and will ship one-per-store.
Filip Sablik, President of Publishing & Marketing, BOOM! Studios says:
Comic shops are the lifeblood of the industry and this artform, so this is the next step in offering even more support to our retail partners during this time. These new benefits in the BOOM! Retailer Support Services Program allow retailers to grow sales on their best-selling series – like Something is Killing The Children, Once & Future, and Seven Secrets – while also ordering without risk on their next guaranteed hits, including We Only Find Them When They’re Dead, BRZRKR, Mighty Morphin, Power Rangers and Dune: House Atreides, with even more tools to engage their customers.
In order to gain these benefits, retailers must enroll in the BOOM! Guarantee program here.
