Official Press Release

Due in part to the overwhelming response and input from retailers, DC Comics has modified the BLACKEST NIGHT PROMOTIONAL RINGS program solicited in the September Previews!

“We’ve made these changes after receiving great suggestions from some of our retailers,” notes Bob Wayne, DC Vice President Sales. “We’re confident these changes will make it easier for more of our retailers to participate in the promotion.”

Under the new revision, retailers who qualify on titles other than BLACKEST NIGHT #5 can now purchase two bags of promotional rings instead of only one.
