September 30, Mt. Laurel, NJ: As the challenges affecting the comic industry and world at large continue, Dynamite is extending the timeline for returnable titles into the holiday season. The new window now stretches to comics with a November 25 in stores date, and those on November 2 Final Order Cutoff.
Preorders on Dynamite's catalog have been rising in recent months, with the cycle for October releasing products marking the strongest month of the year for the publisher. Though Dynamite acknowledges that all of their deeply valued retailer partners are in different individual situations, based on local laws, health and safety, and business environments. To support all those on the "front lines" selling comics week in and out, and continue the vibrant recovery efforts, Dynamite is stretching returnability options once more.
Titles falling into this extended window include the hotly anticipated kickoff to year two of Christopher Priest's acclaimed run on Vampirella, the blood and guts-flowing second issue of DIE!NAMITE, both with awesome covers by superstars Peach Momoko and Lucio Parrillo, plus all the great Dynamite classics fans look forward to each and every month!
