DC Leaves Diamond – What happens next?

What retailers need to do to make sure they can serve their customers uninterrupted.

We have put together a brief “step-by-step” process for making sure that your transition to UCS or Lunar can go smoothly, and that you continue getting the comics your customers want.

We are working to ensure that Manage Comics continues to work with DC’s new distribution partners, and we’re here to help you.

Step by Step instructions for replacing Diamond with UCS and Lunar.

Comic Pull Lists for Comic Stores

Subscription Software Made Easy!

Whether you’ve been using Excel, paper, or something else and you’re trying to figure out a better way to manage your comic subscriptions, Manage Comics can help your customers subscribe to more comics, improve your ordering, and help you get paid faster!

What is a Comic Pull List?

The term “comics pull list” gets thrown around interchangeably with “comic pull box”, “comic file”, or even “comic subscriptions”. What is it exactly, who is it right for, what are the pros and cons of a pull list? How do comic pull lists make selling comics easier for retailers? We’ll tell you everything about comic pull lists.

You Sell Comics

Subscriptions are at the heart of every comic shop’s business model. They guarantee return trips from your customers, and it makes it easier for you to predict what you need, and when you need it. The problem is subscriptions are hard to manage.

Customers Want Control

Your customers want to know what they are getting, and when they are getting it. They want to be able to order new things, and they want to see what they have waiting for them. If you give them control, they feel more loyal to you.

Keeping Up is Hard

Most people don’t even know what’s available! Previews is a huge catalogue filled with things that may or may not interest them. Store shelves give you an idea of what’s out, but not what’s coming up, and nobody can follow all of the news on all of the websites.
Pull Comics Easily And Efficiently

Pull Comics Easily And Efficiently

Pulling comics has never been this easy. You select what has come in, update prices or exchange rates, click a button, and get a beautifully formatted list ready for you to read. You can choose to view it as a “per customer” list, or by title. You can even let your customers know what has been set aside for them every single week.

Comics in The Palm of Your Hand

Management on the go! The Manage Comics website is fully mobile, that means you can manage the admin interface from your phone or tablet, and your customers can add or modify their lists right from their mobile devices! Best of all, your comic shop is open 24/7, they don’t need to call or email you to make a change, and you get notified about list changes every day.

Give Customers Control

Let your customers manage their subscriptions. The Manage Comics interface lets customers pick from thousands of titles that are available for subscription. You set the terms between adding or deleting a title and when it is pulled, and they see what they will be getting. You can send out updates to them by email letting them know that new products are available to subscribe.

Manage Comics and the Future of Comics Retail

Manage Comics and the Future of Comics Retail

Recently Milton Griepp of ICV2 has been posting a series of articles on the future of retailing. COVID-19 has given everyone a chance to examine their businesses, look at what works, what doesn’t and figure out ways forward. On Tuesday June 16th at 11pm ET, I’ll be talking with Dan Shahain, Milton Griepp, and Stu Colson about what Dan is calling “Comic Shop 2.0”, but before that meeting, I wanted to really analyze Milton’s post.
