    MINX SALES ORDERING INCENTIVE CONTINUES WITH JANES IN LOVE AND EMIKO SUPERSTAR

    DC Comics continues its special sales incentive offers on 2008 Minx titles with JANES IN LOVE and EMIKO SUPERSTAR, both advance-solicited in the June Previews.

    The art attacks continue in JANES IN LOVE, the sequel to the acclaimed graphic novel THE PLAIN JANES. In this new tale, written by Cecil Castellucci and illustrated by Jim Rugg, the coolest clique of misfits ever plays Cupid and becomes entangled in affairs of the heart. P.L.A.I.N. - People Loving Art In Neighborhoods - goes global when the art gang procures a spot in the Metro City Museum of Modern Art Contest. And the Janes will discover that in art and love, the normal rules don't always apply.

    In EMIKO SUPERSTAR, a borrowed diary, a double life and identity issues fuel a teenager's quest to find herself before she cracks and commits social suicide. Watch Emi go from dull, suburban babysitter to eclectic urban art star compliments of one crazy summer. EMIKO SUPERSTAR is written by Mariko Tamako and illustrated by Steve Rolston.

    Qualifying Diamond retailers may make full returns on both JANES IN LOVE and EMIKO SUPERSTAR. Retailers may qualify for this offer as follows:

    DC Comics Retailer Discount Minimum Qualifying order on each title:

    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 EMIKO SUPERSTAR to qualify for full returnability on that title.

    JANES IN LOVE (JUN080288) is advance-solicited in the June Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores on September 10.

    EMIKO SUPERSTAR (JUN080287) is advance-solicited in the June Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores on October 1.
