TKO Studios, the non-Diamond specialty comic book publisher has issued the following edict, for comic store patrons during the coronavirus epidemic shutdowns.
Comic Book Shops are the lifeblood of our industry, and Coronavirus is threatening their existence.
Over the last week, we've seen empty comic book shops, mandatory shut-downs, and shop owners worried they will not be able to keep their stores afloat during this pandemic.
TKO Studios wants to fight back.
Until the end of the Coronavirus threat, when any customer chooses a store during checkout at TKOpresents.com, TKO will send that store 50% of the purchase price, the exact same amount the store would have made selling the book via their brick-and-mortar store.
Comics will persevere. Our culture will persevere. We will persevere.
As always, much love from the TKO team. Stay safe everyone
And if your chosen comic store is not on the list…
