Marvel Retailer Resource Center Continues To Grow


From the press release:

Six months ago, the Marvel Retailer Resource Center ( was launched to help retailers, fans, and potential new customers across the country.  It was designed to provide retailers the most up-to-date info, maps, and previews so that every store across the country could have their own website.  In today’s digital world, it helps to have the most information possible at your fingertips, and now comic book fans can- thanks to the Marvel Retailer Resource Center!  Created to help retailers who either don’t have their own sites or spend time every single week updating their websites themselves, the MRRC now helps fans and stores alike by doing that work for them.  And just when it seemed it couldn’t get any better, it did!

The MRRC relaunch occurred three weeks ago and retailers and fans everywhere have noticed the difference.  In addition to offering Firsts Looks and the MRRC forums to retailers, the new design and the updated marketing tools are so easy to use that membership has nearly TRIPLED in the past three weeks!  Now, stores that never had websites before are able to offer more to their existing customers and many have even had new customers find them over the web.

Chris Powell of Lone Star Comics (, says, “The changes to the MRRC, particularly the integration of the Marvel Digital Comics reader, have been very positive.  The new reader makes the preview comics much easier to read, enabling our employees to be informed about the goings-on in the books when they open on Wednesday morning, so they’re ready to make intelligent recommendations to our customers.  The improvements to the mini-sites were welcome, too, and have addressed many of the requests we made.”

Does YOUR retailer have a website?  Be sure to ask your retailer if they have joined the MRRC and check out their websites for info on all your favorite comics, upcoming events, and more!
