All Star vs Challengers: Beta Ray Bill #1 Sales Battle (or “International Sales Battle Beta”)
Listen, can you hear it? That distant sound of rolling thunder. The air crackles with electricity as it creeps in closer over the horizon. It's the sound of a coming storm, one that has been building for two years…
It's come time for Challengers Comics + Conversation in Chicago and All Star Comics in Melbourne to do away with the mundane day-to-day distractions of running a comic book store and step back into the ring to be counted! HAVE AT THEE!
That's right, the International Sales Battle makes a return to your two favourite stores and this time the comic in question is bringing the thunder!
BETA RAY BILL #1 WRITTEN AND DRAWN BY SUPERSTAR COMIC CREATOR DANIEL WARREN JOHNSON!
Beta Ray Bill. The second-most famous wielder of Mjolnir. The right-hand man (horse?) to the God of Thunder. And now, a warrior without his best weapon. Beta Ray Bill is tired of playing second fiddle to Thor - and with Bill's famous hammer, Stormbreaker, recently destroyed at the new All-Father's hands, tensions are higher than ever. The Korbinite must strike out in search of a new weapon...and a new destiny.
Not familiar with Beta Ray Bill? Don't worry about it! All that you need to know is that with this series Daniel Warren Johnson (Wonder Woman Dead Earth; Murder Falcon; Extremity) will be providing comic book lightning so intense it's liable to melt your eyes when you see the insane action and adventure!
Both stores love the work of DWJ, so Beta Ray Bill #1 is the perfect book to go to battle over, as they are both certain their respective customers have incredible taste in comics and will love it too.
But who’s customers will love it more? And which store will move more copies? Will Challengers remain the International Sales Champions? Or will this epic rematch see the All Star underdogs rise up to ultimate comic retail glory for their moment in the sun? YOU will decide!
Do you love your local store? PROVE IT! Add this awesome new series to your standing order/pull box, or special order #1 for the chance to read the next amazing release from DJW, but more importantly to show your store pride!
This Store-vs-Store/City-vs-City contest runs from March 31st, 2021 (the release date of BETA RAY BILL #1) to April 28th, 2021 (the release date of BETA RAY BILL #2).
The store that sells fewer copies will post a video conceding defeat while heralding the greatness of their opponent.
May the best store win. And so long as you pick up BETA RAY BILL #1 from either store, you are already a winner!
