Vault Comics Announces Extensive Return-to-Market Support for Retailers as Part of the Vault Bound Initiative

Vault Bound

Vault Comics is the latest publisher to offer an initiative to help stores get back on their feet after the impact of COVID-19. The new program, “Vault Bound” initiative, is offering “extensive return-to-market support for retailers.”

The updated Vault Bound initiative extends returnability line-wide across all of our new comics shipping in June and July, while also significantly reducing the price per copy that retailers pay for both our new #1s and new collected editions.

The Vault Bound initiative includes the following:

  • $1.00/COPY NET PRICING for all new #1s shipping in June and July.
  • $6.50/COPY NET PRICING for all new trade paperback collected editions shipping in June and July.
  • FULL RETURNABILITY for all new #1s shipping in June and July.
  • FULL RETURNABILITY for all subsequent issues (#2+) shipping in June and July.

The Vault Bound initiative extends to all retailers with a Diamond account, no matter their discount group, and the terms apply to all covers, without restrictions, minimum orders, or qualifiers of any kind.

Under the Vault Bound initiative, new #1s from Vault will be high-margin and low-risk. For the first issue with a retail price of $3.99, retailers will pay only $1.00, netting $2.99 on every issue sold. These issues are also fully returnable, which means retailer risk is reduced as much as possible.
