Marvel will host a select group of retailers at its offices next week (Thursday, March 23 and Friday, March 24) for a Retailer Summit, the company told ICv2.  The goal is “…to hear directly from them on what they are encountering within the industry and how Marvel can work with them to make sure they know that we hear them and that we plan on actively engaging with them moving forward through more effective communication and new technologies that will activate casual fans into stores,” a Marvel spokesperson said.

Attending from the Marvel side will be Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso, Senior Vice President - Publishing Tom Brevoort, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing David Gabriel, and members of the editorial and sales and marketing teams.
