“BOOM! Studios prides itself on being the best partner in the industry to comic retailers– and that success begins with putting ourselves in their shoes so we can learn directly from the same people who’ve driven comic books to such incredible success,” said Filip Sablik, President of Publishing and Marketing, BOOM! Studios. “Morgan is uniquely qualified to work with retailers on the ground, given her years of success in one of the most competitive comics retail markets in the country. We’re excited to hear what she learns from these visits to such a diverse array of stores in 2018 and beyond so we can continue putting comic shops first.”
If you were able to attend the first three, let us know what your reactions to the talking tour were like. For those who seem to have a real beef with the industry, this could be a great time to let a publisher know what you like and don’t like about their products.
