Happy Star Wars Day fellow travellers of the four colour margins. This month at Manage Comics, we added 104 new comics, TPB’s and Graphic Novels to the Network.
As usual, we’ve added the items we think that your customers will most want to see, we curate that list, and cull it frequently so that your customers don’t need to drink from the firehose every time they want to add a comic, and they will see the most important things that they want to subscribe to.
July will put us knee deep in what again promises to be a blockbuster movie season, but we’ll also see a ton of great comics coming out, and we’re here to shine a spotlight on those comics.
The May 2018 Highlights:
