Vault Comics is offering extensive return-to-market support for retailers as part of the Vault Bound initiative.
The updated Vault Bound initiative extends returnability line-wide across all of our new comics shipping in June and July, while also significantly reducing the price per copy that retailers pay for both our new #1s and new collected editions.
The Vault Bound initiative includes the following:
• $1.00/COPY NET PRICING for all new #1s shipping in June and July.
• $6.50/COPY NET PRICING for all new trade paperback collected editions shipping in June and July.
• FULL RETURNABILITY for all new #1s shipping in June and July.
• FULL RETURNABILITY for all subsequent issues (#2+) shipping in June and July.
The Vault Bound initiative extends to all retailers with a Diamond account, no matter their discount group, and the terms apply to all covers, without restrictions, minimum orders, or qualifiers of any kind.
“We succeed together with comic shops, or not at all,” said Vault’s CEO, Damian Wassel. “If we can help comic shops reduce risk, improve margins, and stabilize cash flow, that’s good for them, it’s good for us, and it’s good for everyone who loves comics.”
Under the Vault Bound initiative, new #1s from Vault will be high-margin and low-risk. For a first issue with a retail price of $3.99, retailers will pay only $1.00, netting $2.99 on every issue sold. These issues are also fully returnable, which means retailer risk is reduced as much possible.
