The council comes as the publisher reveals that it will kick off its publishing program by launching four titles in March 2020. The plan for AWA is to build to six to eight releases per month and then hold at that level for the foreseeable future, Co-Founder Jemas told ICv2.
Two months prior to the Diamond date, AWA will send members of the AWA Retail Council reader copies of five to ten first issues. Council members will vote for their favorite book, and the winner will become a Big Book, which will be available to council members at 75% off cover price.
Charter members of the Retail Council will also receive a $250 credit that can be used toward the purchase of any AWA book for one year.
The four titles planned for launch in March (all at $3.99) are:
AWA Launches Shared Superhero Universe with ‘The Resistance’").
AWA Announces First Comic Titles, by Cho, Milligan, Faust, Moreci, More").
We've got preview art for all four of the titles (see "Preview: AWA's Four Launch Ttiles").
