Valiant's Warped Tour Partnership to Offer Comic Shops Free Exhibition Space


Valiant has a newly announced partnership with the 2017 Vans Warped Tour, but they won't be going on the road alone… They're planning to bring comic book retailers with them.

Teased at the publisher's ComicsPRO presentation this afternoon with the promise of final details to follow in coming weeks, Valiant reps Hunter Gorinson and Atom Freeman told attending retailers that not only is the US's longest running touring music festival integrating comics into its line-up for the first time in a substantial way, the festival is going one step further…and offering local comic shops the opportunity to get free booth space at Warped Tour dates all summer long in front of tens of thousands of potential new customers.

Expect details and application criteria to follow before the 2017 Warped Tour kicks off this June.
