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
Keeping Up is Hard
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.
The Manage Comics Blog
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.
DC Comics is now doing their solicitations a little different than other companies. They have a magazine called “DC Connect” which will be available only digitally, and which will have different information.
There was a bit of a comics setback as the world adjusted to “The New Normal”, but with the world slowly opening back up, comics are once again being previewed, this month with comics shipping in August 2020 and beyond. This month’s lineup is smaller than usual, but there’s still something for everyone!
