BOOM! Reveals their BOOM! Guarantee Retailer Rewards Program

BOOM! Studios

BOOM! Studios has revealed details of their groundbreaking upgrades to their BOOM! Guarantee retailer rewards program, first announced last month at the ComicsPRO Annual Meeting (where the publisher received the prestigious Industry Award).

With the introduction of this new benefit to the BOOM! Guarantee program – which remains 100% free to any participating retailers – a minimum of (2) graphic novel releases each month will be fully returnable, an opportunity previously only available to the book store market. This is the first time that any North American comic book publisher has offered full returnability via affidavit on graphic novels and, like the current single issue returnability offered through the BOOM! Guarantee program, will not require any minimum orders or returning of physical product.

This unprecedented opportunity for comic shop retailers joins the already unparalleled returnability offered through the BOOM! Guarantee program which allows participants free returnability on a minimum of (6) select new release single issues each month. To provide these retailers with a chance to invest in every new series without any risk, BOOM! Studios offers this returnability through at least the second issue of these select series, without any order minimums or cover stripping. 

The new graphic novel returnability via the BOOM! Guarantee program will begin with June-shipping titles including Hotel Dare, a world-hopping fantasy for young readers from Terry Blas (Dead Weight) and illustrated by rising talent Claudia Aguirre (Kim & Kim); and Plate Tectonics, a riveting look at a modern approach to life, romance, and motherhood after divorce from the popular French cartoonist and illustrator Margaux Motin (But I Really Wanted to Be an Anthropologist).

Plate Tectonics: An Illustrated Memoir is an Original Graphic Novel from Margaux Motin and BOOM! Studios in June 2019

BOOM! Studios has announced Plate Tectonics: An Illustrated Memoir, an original graphic novel meditation on being a single mother in the modern world from cartoonist Margaux Motin. Life is full of little earthquakes. When the dust settles, how do you rebuild?

Plate Tectonics, arriving in stores June 2019, follows Margaux through one of the most transformative periods of her life as she navigates her own heartbreak and subsequent hope with unabashed wit and charm.

At age thirty-five, Margaux’s life is full of upheaval and unexpected twists and turns. She’s divorced, raising a child on her own, and trying to get back on her feet in today’s fast-paced world. When romance eventually returns it takes on the most unexpected shape . . . in that of her best friend! Could things possibly get more complicated?!
