    DC COMICS OFFERS RETAILERS THE WATCHMEN TP 12-COPY FLOOR DISPLAY

    As interest in the upcoming WATCHMEN movie continues to grow, DC Comics offers the WATCHMEN TP 12-COPY FLOOR DISPLAY, limited to one Display per retail location.

    Standing approximately 61.5" tall by 12" wide by 10.25" deep when assembled, the WATCHMEN TP 12-COPY FLOOR DISPLAY comes packed with twelve copies of the classic WATCHMEN TP. Ideal for focusing attention on your stock of the WATCHMEN and related items, retailers may restock the display continually as the movie's opening date of March 6, 2009, draws closer.

    The WATCHMEN TP 12-COPY FLOOR DISPLAY (OCT080159) is advance-solicited in the October Previews Order Form with a price of $239.88 U.S. - the cost of the twelve copies of the WATCHMEN TP, with no charge for the display itself.

    This item is scheduled to arrive in stores January 7, is available in the U.S. and Canada only and requires some assembly. Orders must be placed by the final order cutoff date of November 6 and are limited to one Display per retail location.

    Also solicited in Previews this month are the following items:

    . The WATCHMEN #1 New Printing (OCT080158), a facscimile edition of the historic issue that began the WATCHMEN phenomenon in 1986, offered for the first time in years at its original cover price of $1.50 U.S. and scheduled to arrive in stores on December 3.

    . The WATCHMEN INTERNATIONAL EDITION TP (JUL088045), featuring recolored cover art by artist extraordinaire Dave Gibbons. Created especially for the international market, this edition is also available to retailers in the U.S. and Canada exclusively through Diamond, and is scheduled to arrive in stores on December 3 with a cover price of $19.99 U.S.
