Missoula MT (2/19/2019): Vault is excited to announce its new Bound: Comics and Community initiative. Under this initiative, Vault will provide comic shops with up to $25,000.00 (retail value) worth of product to support a variety of community engagement events throughout 2019.
Vault is especially interested in supporting events that promote literacy, create safe spaces for community interaction, engage younger readers, or help local business communities thrive. Any comic shop with a Diamond account is eligible to apply.
“Perhaps the most important step we can take to ensure the ongoing success of comics is to create and support a healthy, diverse community of fans,” said Damian Wassel, Vault Publisher & CEO. “Vault celebrates and applauds comic shops who work to foster deep ties with their community, through events that engage fans, promote literacy and inclusion, and support local businesses. So we’re launching our Bound: Comics & Community initiative, because we want to put our money where our heart is: With the fans, comic shops, and retailers who make comics what they are.”
