    WATCHMEN TP OFFERED ON CONSIGNMENT FROM DC COMICS AND DIAMOND

    Starting June 18, DC Comics and Diamond Comic Distributors kick off a three-part series of special consignment offers for the WATCHMEN TP (FEB058406), allowing retailers to meet demand for this classic collected edition as interest in the upcoming movie builds.

    Written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons, WATCHMEN is the most acclaimed and bestselling graphic novel of all time, and was named one of Time Magazine's 100 Best English-language novels from 1923 to today.

    Details on the first part of this consignment offer are below. Watch for details on the second and third parts of the consignment offer in late August.

    From June 18 through September 1, Diamond retailers whose accounts are in good standing may reorder the WATCHMEN TP (FEB058406) via phone, fax, or email only with no upfront charge. Please reference code PROMO 838 to ensure that your copies appear on your invoice at $0.00 cost.

    As with all reorders, retailers may elect to have their consignments direct-shipped to their stores, or have them reshipped via their Diamond Distribution Centers with their shipments the following week.

    Consignment titles must be kept on sale until September 1. After September 1, retailers will have until September 30 to return unsold quantities of their consignment reorder.

    This offer is good in the U.S., the U.K. and Canada only, and applies only to the WATCHMEN TP. For further information on this special consignment offer, please see the July 2 Diamond Dateline.

    ALL STAR BATMAN AND ROBIN, THE BOY WONDER #11 AND 12 TO BE RESOLICITED

    Please note that ALL STAR BATMAN AND ROBIN, THE BOY WONDER #11 (APR080186) and 12 (JUN080198) both will be resolicited at a date to be determined later. All orders on these issues are canceled.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    CHANGE IN ARTISTS FOR HOUSE OF MYSTERY #3

    Please note that the short story scheduled to appear in HOUSE OF MYSTERY #3 (MAY080268) with art by Bernie Wrightson now will appear in a future issue of HOUSE OF MYSTERY to be determined later.

    Instead, issue #3 will feature a short story featuring art by Sean Murphy (BATMAN/SCARECROW: YEAR ONE).

    Because of this change, this issue will be made returnable at a later date.
