Cinema Purgatorio Comic Book Retailer Level Added!

Posted by Avatar Press (Creator)
3 likes

Cinema Purgatorio has been generating so much excitement with fans that we wanted to help local comic shops be a part of the movement.  This exclusive hardcover edition is being offered to comic book shops through Kickstarter now.  We wanted to let our valued partners at the comic shops have a chance to engage their customers with this initial deluxe version of the groundbreaking new series.  And having access to the Kickstarter hardcover edition with the extra content is vital for them to be able to give their patrons every option for their collecting and reading needs.

This new level includes 20 Deluxe Hardcover editions of Cinema Purgatorio #1 and shipping to the stores. It is our way of reaching out and sharing in the success of the Cinema Purgatorio Kickstarter with our comic book retail partners.  Thanks for supporting the project and Avatar Press properties in your stores every week!

      @Spence - the number of retailers that are going to participate is maybe low double digits. @John is correct that the offer is a volume discount for the few that want to make sure they have a handful of copies of the exclusive edition for their shops. The chance that a supporting shop will be in any particular consumer's area is really slim. This is still an exclusive product. The Kickstarter Hardcover will not be offered in mass anywhere - not in Previews or online. We're making sure that the fans that supported this project are the top priority for these books. Thanks for supporting the project!

      This is essentially a volume discount. There was never going to be a way to stop comic shops from stocking the latest Alan Moore book, even if they had to source it through Kickstarter.

      So it's not really a Kickstarter exclusive anymore is it?

      @Richard - your pledge helped to make this project possible and we greatly appreciate it. Everyone who has supported this new comic series has made a huge difference in bringing this book to fruition.

      Only a handful of comic book shops are going to be a part of the outreach level if they decide to carry this edition. There are only 60 spots available and there's no guarantee that any stores big or small will have the books local to our supporters. We really appreciate each and every one of our supporters here and we're trying to give everyone as much value as we can at each level. We hope you stick with us as we're sure you'll really enjoy the book and items when you receive them. Thanks!
