November DC Books to contain special preview inserts

Press Release

Four upcoming DC Universe projects will be featured in advance preview
pages in select DCU titles as part of a special advertising insert in November.

These projects – AQUAMAN, GOTHAM CENTRAL, SUPERMAN: METROPOLIS, and H-E-R-O – are already generating buzz among fans who are sure to greet these preview pages with enthusiasm. Each preview will include a cover and five story pages in full color on glossy paper and will be featured for one week during November. These eight-pages inserts will be bound into the center of all participating books.

“It’s a cost-effective tool to promote four new titles with the kind of
innovative advertising that continues to keep the cost of our books as low as possible,” says Bob Wayne, DC’s Vice President – Sales & Marketing. “I applaud our ad sales department for instigating this tool and the DC editorial group for its efforts to make it happen.”

“Retailers are advised to take this promotion into consideration when they place their orders for each of these four titles,” adds Wayne. “Once readers sample them, they’re sure to want to pick up the debut issues.”
