Now this is some interesting news — you’ve probably read in the past a lot of the debate that’s been going on regarding Diamond Comic Distribution, and the fact that you now have to have $2,500 in orders to use their service.
Well, this looks like the first larger-scale rebellion, straight from Asylum Press. Here’s what they had to say in a written statement:
“Although we received 1,200 orders for Fearless Dawn #1, we simply didn’t meet Diamond’s purchase order benchmark, “ explained Frank Forte Asylum Press CEO. “1200 is a significant order for us especially considering the state of the market place. Good customer service is the key to any successful business and we simply cannot deny demand for our products. Steve Mannion is a master at hilarious in your face fun and we expect this book to do quite well.”
Their terms are as follows:
Fearless Dawn #1 cover price $2.95,
60% discount: $1.18,
Asylum Press pays shipping
Net 30 days for payment(flexible)
