Support and Promote Indie Skip Week #indieskipweek
On Wednesday, December 26th, Diamond Comics will be working with a a few of their Premiere Publishers to bring just a handful of comics to market. Comic Shops will be receiving only a little over a dozen titles (including Amazing Spider-Man 700) instead of the normal 60+ books.
Please note that in Canada, most stores will be closed on the 26th for Boxing Day, so look for new books on Thursday, December 27th.
Instead of encouraging customers to skip shopping in the store for an entire week – which I’m not sure they will do if new comics are coming out combined with end of the year sales and promotions — but many comic shop owners across North America will be using this as an opportunity to fill the gap and promote Self-Published Comics, Creator Owned Comics and Micro-Publisher Comics at the forefront of their comic shops. For an entire week all walk-in traffic can hopefully be introduced to a wonderful side of comics that many customers don’t get to see with the emphasis on mainstream publishers.
Hopefully customers will then discover new talents and new titles! This is a great way to support the smallest and most innovative creators working in the comics industry.
There are a lot of great comics out there that qualify from publishers such as: Top Shelf, Archaia Press, Image Comics, Koyama Press, Drawn & Quarterly, Conundrum Press, Oni Press, Retrofit Comics, Secret Acres, Oily Comics and more!
Help turn this into an opportunity to support independent creators and self-publishers.
