September 18, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite announces an upgrade to the paper quality for all comic book periodical covers moving forward. This all kicks off with the anticipated launch of DIE!NAMITE #1 on Final Order Cutoff this weekend, followed by a full rollout for titles on sale November 4.
Based on retailer and fan feedback, and the continuing rising sales, Dynamite is excited to make this change and reward all our partners and customers for supporting all the great stories and creators in the Dynamite family. All Dynamite covers will now be printed on 100-pound paper stock, resulting in a much sturdier product. This will result in a better reading experience for fans, and more resistance to damage in shipping to retailers and eventually getting into collectors’ long boxes or even slabbed.
The cost of this upgrade is well worth it considering the recent support shown for Dynamite across the industry. From the August-for-October solicitations resulting in the best sales of the year, series increasing in overall orders even 15 issues into their run, to double-digit order increases at Final Order Cutoff.
