The Diamond Retailer Best Pratice Awards are given out by the comic book distributor to comic stores to reward "best practice" – and other stores get to vote on who is their favourite.
The nominations for the Spring 2014 are out and there are lots of them to choose from!
So for today, let's just look at the nominations for Best Store Logo. Retailers who vote by Juy 11th can also be entered to win hundreds of dollars worth of stock for the store.
But you have to be in it to win it… here are the nominated stores… but who else should have sent in an entry form? I've always had a soft spot for Rian Hughes' logo for Forbidden Planet… it's a classic.
But here are the stores up for voting. More nominations tomorrow.
