Even the most seasoned comic reader can occasionally dread thumbing through the phonebook-sized catalog known as PREVIEWS. Order codes, page numbers, prices, titles, issue numbers, totals, etc. etc. -- it can be daunting to say the least.
For a completely new or casual customer, it might be seen as something that is totally unnecessary. But PREVIEWS is very necessary for the comic shop industry as it's your pre-orders that can help ensure the survival of your favorite comics. While it's not that hard to use, it does take time (that you can use reading comics instead of reading catalogs) and it has a bit of a learning curve to it to get the hang of the lingo.
We can't make the entire catalog easier to use, but we hope that our new order form will make it easier to order and pre-order our titles at your favorite comic shop.
For Alterna titles, we've taken the guesswork out things by incorporating Diamond's order form along with a handy guide that shows when our titles are being released, what kind of genre they are, an example of first issue cover art, price, and age rating.
We've also added in a spot for customers to fill out their information as well so everything should be quick and easy for shop owners and readers can spend more time reading comic books and less time filling out paperwork.
Our new order form can be downloaded as a PDF below or by saving the image below as a JPEG. Thanks for reading and for supporting creator-owned comics!
Diamond order codes too confusing or hard to remember?
