Comics fans! Are you ready for the best of both worlds? Are you ready for the thrills of monthly installments AND the joys of a clean shelf of books? Are you ready for the most recent of releases AND the long-term viability of collections? Are you ready to get your "single comics" chocolate in your "trade paperbacks" peanut butter?
Are you ready for COMICS + COLLECTIONS?
Challengers is pleased to announce (assuming you don't count the sleepy-time episode #114 of Contest of Challengers as an announcement) a brand-new addition to our subscription service, Comics + Collections. Simply, if you subscribe to a comic series (at 10% off), you are eligible to pre-order any collection of that series at 40% off. That means that if you regularly subscribe to the monthly issues of Saga and buy #7-12, you can pre-order the second softcover at 40% off. It's all the fun of monthly cliffhangers, with a bonus book to read forever.
To make this service work, there's only a few rules to follow:
-You must be a member of our subscription service. It's a free service, you'll get 10% off anything to which you subscribe, and it's really the only way we can keep track of what issues you've bought so you can get your collections at 40% off.
-You must buy every issue in a collection to get it at 40% off. For example, if Saga vol 2 contains issues 7 through 12, you must have bought all those issues from us to get a 40% discount off the book.
-You must preorder a collection to get the 40% discount. Each Wednesday, in our list of next week's releases (like this page here), we'll post a list of what books are hitting a Sunday deadline for orders. Any orders placed after that date will not be eligible for a 40% discount. If you ever have any questions over release dates and deadlines, we're happy to answer them via phone or e-mail.
-This offer is good for any format of collection. You can apply an earned discount towards a softcover, hardcover, slipcase, omnibus, or all of the above. If you've bought every issue from us, you can get the collection at 40% off in perpetuity. Should a publisher offer a deluxe version of a collection you already got at 40% off, you can get the new one at 40% off as well.
This deal starts right this very second. If you're in our subscription service and want to start getting collections for your series, let us know which ones! If you aren't in our subscription service but want to get started, sign up in-store with this form, or connect with us on ComiXology here. If you've got any questions or any ways we can make this service better, let us know!
