TKO Studios, the non-diamond comic book publisher issued the following edict, for comic book store shoppers during coronavirus outbreak closures.
Comic book stores are the lifeblood of our industry and the coronavirus threatens their existence.
Over the past week, we’ve seen empty comic book stores, mandatory closings, and store owners fearing they won’t be able to keep their stores afloat during this pandemic.
TKO Studios wants to retaliate.
Until the coronavirus threat is over, when a customer chooses a store when checking out on TKOpresents.com, TKO will send that store 50% of the purchase price, exactly the same amount the store would have made by selling the book through their brick and mortar store.
The comics will persevere. Our culture will persevere. We will persevere.
As always, a lot of love from the TKO team. Stay safe everyone
