Image Comics Ends Line-Wide Returnability Programme

As shutdowns and lockdowns came in last year, as the pandemic began to become a real threat, Image Comics – as well as a number of other publishers – launched a mass returnability programme so that retailers could order comics in confidence and return them if they got stuck with too many as another lockdown came in. Then those returnability programmes were extended further as the pandemic continued to shut down society.

But as of now, Image Comics has told comic book retailers that it is ending its line-wide returnability programme. Image Comics will still continue its "No Risk #1 Program" offering full returnability on launch titles, including the following books.
