    DC COMICS BEGINS WATCHMEN CONSIGNMENT SALE PART TWO

    The second part of consignment sale of the WATCHMEN TP is about to begin, allowing retailers to order copies of this classic title at no up-front cost.

    From September 17 through December 1, Diamond retailers whose accounts are in good standing may reorder the WATCHMEN TP (FEB058406) via phone, fax or email only with no up-front charge. Please reference code PROMO 832 to ensure that your copies appear on your invoice at $0.00 cost.

    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.

    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 December 1. After December 1, retailers will have until December 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. Please note that U.K. consignment orders will be filled with the WATCHMEN INTERNATIONAL EDITION TP.

    For further information on this special consignment offer, please see the July 2 Diamond Dateline.

    Watch for an announcement on the WATCHMEN TP 12-COPY FLOOR DISPLAY, coming soon. (This item is not a part of the consignment sale.)

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