Official Press Release
Following a successful initial 6-month period for the trailblazing Share the Risk program, DC Comics announces the program will be extended for an additional three months.
"Overall, the response to Share the Risk from retailers has been extremely positive," says Bob Wayne, DC's VP - Sales & Marketing. "We've decided to give the program three more months."
As previously announced, retailers ordering at or above their earned discount tiers' minimum quantities will be eligible to return up to 20% of their initial orders at a later date.
These titles will be announced as returnable at a later date in Diamond Dateline and will be eligible for returns for a limited time only. Retailers will be billed for the titles as usual and then credited for the returns at a later date. Information regarding returnable titles has begun appearing in retailers' Order Status Reports.
The following Share the Risk titles are solicited in the August issue of Previews (Volume XIII #8):
