So you want to have your comic, book, zine etc. in a comic shop? Well look no further because Heroes & Villains will give you a chance to do that!
Basically, here’s how H&V rolls: Heroes and Villains will pretty much stock anything (unless it’s “rated x”. If you’re not sure if your book is “rated x” or not, then it probably is).
We believe that every book should be given the opportunity to find its audience. So that means you’re all in. Whoo! Easy, right?
Send copies of your book(s) to:
Heroes and Villains c/o Eric M. Esquivel
4533 East Broadway
And I’ll sling you and email as soon as we receive them, enter them into our database, and rack ‘em on the shelf.
Include an invoice which includes your contact information, the quantity of each book you sent (please, no more than 3), Heroes and Villains’ cost per book, and the suggested retail price.
Heroes and Villains monitors books sales based on a 6 week cycle. It’s up to you to contact us (via email) after 6 weeks, to see how your book performed. If you sold any copies during those 6 weeks, we’ll issue a check for the amount sold. If we haven’t sold any books in that initial 6 week period, contact us in another 6 weeks and we’ll repeat the process.
After you’ve sold some books at Heroes and Villains, we’ll use that data to order from you in the future–paying flat-out, this time. No more 6 weeks malarkey.
Heroes and Villains doesn’t have a set rate, as far as our cut goes. It’s up to you. 50/50 is pretty standard (for example: if your book’s msrp is $12, it’d be common to charge the store $6 for their copies), but feel free to set your own kickback percentage.
Promotional freebies are welcome! We’re accustomed to stuffing bags with free goodies (fliers, mini comics, buttons) to get folks interested in new products.
Heroes and Villains doesn’t pay shipping (but you can write it off on your taxes–so that’s pretty cool).
If you have any questions at all, feel free to get in contact with me at either [email protected] or at 520-321-HERO.
