August 13, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite announces an extensive slate of sales for retailer partners on graphic novels and more this coming season in October and November, right before the holidays.
Across nearly the entire line, graphic novels, statues, trading cards and other items will be discounted significantly for retailers to get prepared for the holiday season. Titles included will feature fan-favorite stories from acclaimed creators on Vampirella, Red Sonja, The Boys, John Wick, Elvira and much more. Fans can expect to see some of these exciting goodies at their local comic shops to grab themselves or for a loved one. More details will be shared with retailers soon.
"Retailers are the lifeblood of this industry and 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone," said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. "During the shutdown early into the pandemic and continuing, we offered several sales across all our product categories and properties. Retailers were able to order our perennial graphic novels at incredible discounts, and our marketing team assisted them with the hooks and stories attached to the product to result in sales while most stories had to experiment with curbside pickup and mail-order options. As the crucial holiday season approaches, still with some uncertainty in some areas, we're re-upping our efforts in this area."
