Comic Market Solicits Questions
Many retailers are concerned that the “DC Explanation Tour 2011” has too few stops to satisfy all of us. It’s a big change, happening very quickly, being met with lots of uncertainty. Happening even quicker is the “DC Explanation Tour 2011.” With many prime comic book retail regions being left out and only a few weeks to make proper plans many of us just won’t be able to attend.
This Tuesday, June 14, 2011, all retailers are urged to chime in to the #comicmarket Twitterstorm to share the questions they want to ask DC Comics.
“#comicmarket is the perfect place for everyone to be heard,” said Larry Doherty of Larry’s Comics and #comicmarket founder. “With so many retailers participating in #comicmarket, we will prompt important questions that have been over looked. It is certain that a number of #comicmarket participants will make the DC Tour meetings and ask those questions.”
Larry Marder posed some great questions early Sunday morning (search @larrymarder or #comicmarket to review his questions), focusing on the business aspect of the change, as opposed to the fan aspect. He said, “DC retail tour can’t be about content & teams. Sharp focus on marketing & biz detail needed. Not Superman’s lost panties.”
Please be a part of #comicmarket this Tuesday, June 14, 2011 and tell the Comic Market all the important questions you have for DC, and then join #comicmarket every Tuesday and help support #comicmarket!
“In fairness, I don’t believe the DC Tour was initially planned so they’ve had to scramble and have done the best they could to include as many retail regions as possible, covering as much ground as they can in a short period of time, while still being a part of the Summer convention circuit. While I regret that New England is not on the tour I understand that time is working against all of us and many areas could not be visited – just a side note that I think is important.” -Ralph DiBernando, owner of Jetpack Comics and #comicmarket founder.
