Marvel Blows Out Its Soleil Stock

Marvel Blows Out Its Soleil StockIn 2008, Marvel Comics entered into a deal with the French publisher Soleil to republish a number of French titles to the American market. Then they seemed to… stop.

Recently Axel Alonso told Comic Book Resources that "At this time, there are no plans to publish additional Soleil titles. We love Soleil, their comics and their creators, and will continue to work with them when we can, but we won't be localizing any of their content right now."

Well, Marvel seem to love them so much that they are trying to get everyone to read them. By blowing out remaining copies of the trades and hardcovers to comic book retailers for 90% off the cover price.

So if you see a stack of the likes of Daffodil, Husk, Kookaburra, Samurai, Scourge Of Gods, Sky Doll, Spin Angels, Tales Of Dragon Guard, Universal War and Ythaq… well, maybe you might be able to do a bit of a deal as well.

It does look like the Soleil has set at Marvel…
