Mad Cave Launches New Retailer Programme, and Stargazer #1 in May 2020 Solicits

ComicsPRO was this weekend at Portland, Oregon, was rather overshadowed by the firing of DC Publisher Dan DiDio. So we are rather playing catch up with some of the news announced, apologies for our tardiness. But that included Mad Cave Studios launching Mad Cave Champions, a new rewards initiative to provide retailers exclusive offers on all Mad Cave comics. The program will offer plenty of benefits to any store that becomes a part of the program. Some of those benefits include:

● 50% off any order when they visit www.madcavestudios.com online store.
● Exclusive Bi-monthly deals.
● Each store will also be receiving a "Mad Care Package" which will include an assortment of Mad Cave Products as a small token of appreciation for joining.
● Free Shipping on Orders of $50 or more.
● Champion stores will also receive Exclusive First Looks for each new series.
● Most importantly, the first two issues of every new Mad Cave series, beginning with Stargazer in May, will be returnable within 60 days of release.

Here's a look at all of Mad Cave's solicitations for May 2020. And you can catch up with all our ComicPRO coverage right here.
