    DC COMICS AND WARNER BROS. PROVIDE RETAILERS WITH SEVENTH WATCHMEN MOVIE POSTER

    On March 4, just two days before WATCHMEN makes its highly anticipated debut in theaters nationwide, retailers will receive a free, seventh WATCHMEN movie poster, courtesy of DC Comics and Warner Bros.

    Like the previous six WATCHMEN character posters sent to retailers, this seventh poster will be provided one per Diamond retailer. This poster, intended for instore display, features a group shot from the movie, will arrive in stores folded to 8.5" x 11", and will appear on retailer invoices as zero cost items under the item code NOV088119.

    DC COMICS REPRINTS SOLICITATION SECTION FROM MARCH PREVIEWS

    Due to a printing error, several DC Comics pages from the March issue of PREVIEWS - which arrives in stores on February 25 - were incorrectly printed with information from the February PREVIEWS.

    To provide retailers and their customers with complete and correct March solicitations, DC is creating a special, separate 72-page DC COMICS PREVIEWS catalogue reprinting the Direct Currents section from the March PREVIEWS.

    Each retailer will receive one free copy of DC Comics Previews (under item code JAN098098), along with free additional copies (under item code JAN098099) in quantities equaling their orders for the March PREVIEWS. The catalogue is scheduled to reach stores on March 4.

    Also, the reprinted DC solicitations section is available for download now at https://retailer.diamondcomics.com/...prevDCSalesTools&pf=dc.htm&pt=#correctedPages

    Please note that the March Previews Retailer and Customer Order Forms list all DC items correctly. You may use these as you normally would when placing orders.
