Pushing Up Purgatori With Three New Covers

Dynamite launched the Chaos Comics mini-series and from that spun out Chastity, Evil Ernie and of course Purgatori. With the Final Order Cutoff (FOC) coming up, Dynamite is putting out 3 new covers for Purgatori #1 to try and get retailers to increase their orders. Now retailer don't have to increase their orders on the regular titles as the eligibility is based on total orders not total new orders… retailers can get these special covers based on ratio of 1:5, 1:10 and 1:15.

So, bottom line… if there is one of these covers you really want. You better go buddy up to your local retailer now. Maybe take him a soda.

Here is how the retailer incentives work according to Diamond:

  • FOC Incentive A: For those retailers who maintain or increase existing orders for PURGATORI #1 (JUL141064 – JUL141070) during the FOC cycle, they will be eligible to purchase one (1) copy of PURGATORI #1 RARE STRAHM B&W INCV at $2.00 Net for every five (5) PURGATORI #1 (JUL141064 – JUL141070) copies ordered.
  • FOC Incentive B: For those retailers who maintain or increase existing orders for PURGATORI #1 (JUL141064 – JUL141070) during the FOC cycle, they will be eligible to purchase one (1) copy of PURGATORI #1 RARE RUFFINO BLOOD RED INCV at $2.00 Net for every ten (10) PURGATORI #1 (JUL141064 – JUL141070) copies ordered.
  • FOC Incentive C: For those retailers who maintain or increase existing orders for PURGATORI #1 (JUL141064 – JUL141070) during the FOC cycle, they will be eligible to purchase one (1) copy of PURGATORI #1 RARE SEELEY BLOOD RED INCV at $2.00 Net for every fifteen (15) PURGATORI #1 (JUL141064 – JUL141070) copies ordered.
