We mentioned this was coming for the ComicsPRO event in Portland last week. Instead it seemed that DC Comics delayed announcing this particular measure until the retailer event in New York on Friday.
Because, yes, DC Comics are closing their Sales Call team, where sales reps call hundreds of individual comic book retailers to talk about their numbers, highlight anything a retailer might have missed and help retailers with information they might require.
DC Comics did however assure representatives that will still be on hand to field inquiries and concerns from retailers.
All they have to do is pick up the Batphone.
