    DC COMICS ANNOUNCES SALES INCENTIVE FOR CLUBBING, THE LATEST TITLE FROM MINX

    CLUBBING, the third title from DC Comics' new Minx imprint, will be solicited in April Previews (Volume XVII #4) to arrive in stores on July 11. With that solicitation, DC announces a special sales incentive for this title, continuing the sales incentives on Minx titles announced earlier this year.

    Retailers may qualify for this offer as follows:

    DC Comics Retailer Discount Minimum Qualifying order

    35% 2 copies
    40% 2 copies
    50% 4 copies
    52.50% 4 copies
    55% 6 copies
    56% 10 copies
    57% 15 copies

    For example, a retailer with a 50% DC Comics discount must order a minimum of 4 copies of CLUBBING to qualify for full returnability.

    The offer is valid through the Final Order Cutoff date of June 7, and only in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. DC will announce the return window for this title at a later date.

    CLUBBING is solicited in the April Previews (Volume XVII #4) and is scheduled to arrive in stores on July 11.

    The remaining Minx titles for 2007 include:

    * GOOD AS LILY (August)
    * CONFESSIONS OF A BLABBERMOUTH (September)
    * WATER BABY (October)
    * KIMMIE66 (November)

    THE PLAIN JANES FEATURED IN VANITY FAIR AND PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

    THE PLAIN JANES, the first title from Minx, is featured in the current issues of Vanity Fair and Publishers Weekly.

    The May Vanity Fair includes an item on Minx and THE PLAIN JANES that reads, "You don't have to be a comic book geek to dig DC Comics' kicky new imprint, Minx."

    The April 9 Publishers Weekly includes a review that reads, "Minx . . . starts off with a bang with this elegant story of art in the suburbs. [Cecil] Castellucci and [Jim] Rugg nimbly make their larger point - that fear is an indulgence we must give ourselves permission to overcome - without ever preaching, and without neglecting the dynamics of a page-turning coming-of-age story."

    THE PLAIN JANES (FEB070235) is available for advance reorder and is scheduled to arrive in stores on May 16.
