    DC DIRECT OFFERS MASTER CASE ORDERING ON POSTERS

    Starting with the July Previews, DC Direct will solicit posters in a new way. Retailers now may choose between ordering single copies of a poster or ordering a master case containing six copies of a poster for the price of five.

    "The pricing on the master case offers a substantial savings to retailers," says Jeff Trojan, VP - Business Development, DC Direct. "We recommend using the sixth poster for display, as customers will be more likely to make a purchase when they can see the art at full size."

    Master case ordering begins with the BATMAN: ALL STAR POSTER, featuring art by Jim Lee and Scott Williams, and the NIGHTWING: REFLECTIONS POSTER, featuring art by Ryan Sook. Both will be solicited in the July Previews.

    REMINDER: SALES INCENTIVES FOR THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #14

    As a reminder, THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #14 (MAY070162), the second issue of the special 3-part FLASH event, is solicited in the May Previews with a special sales incentive.

    This issue is written by Marc Guggenheim, with art by Tony Daniel & Art Thibert, as well as two covers by Joshua Middleton and Bill Sienkiewicz that will arrive in stores in a split of approximately 50/50.

    Retailers may qualify to make full returns on THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #14 by placing final orders equal to or greater than 200% of their orders for THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #10 (JAN070287). This offer is valid only on orders placed by the Final Order Cutoff date of June 28.

    Qualifying retailers will be required to return stripped covers from this issue with an affidavit of destruction to Diamond Comic Distributors at a date to be named later.

    THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #14 (APR070194) is scheduled to arrive in stores on July 18.

    REMINDER: SPECIAL SALES INCENTIVE ON GOOD AS LILY

    As a reminder, GOOD AS LILY, the fourth title from Minx, is solicited in May Previews with a special sales incentive. Qualifying retailers may make full returns on this title at a date to be named later.
