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).
