Chicago, IL – May 9, 2006 – In May, Devil's Due Publishing kicks off a FREE comic book promotion - the Devil's Due's RIPPED-OFFer! With so many comics coming out every month from "The Big Two" these days, they can't all be that great. We know, we read them too. If you bought a "Big Two" book you don't like, vent your frustration and RIP THE COVER OFF! Send the cover to DDP, and we'll send you a FREE BOOK. That's right, a free book! It's finally your turn to rip them off!
"I came up with this idea a few months ago when stores were beginning to get inundated with a deluge of crossover comics." said DDP President Josh Blaylock, "This isn't going to topple any 'empires', but it can be a fun way to discover a new comic and vent one's frustrations at the same time."
"I just dropped 2 books published by "The Big Two" from my pull box recently. I just wasn't interested in the stories any more," began DDP VP of Marketing Susan Bishop. "It's nice that there's a place for readers to send these unwanted books and get another title for free!"
