ComicsPRO is a trade association for comic book retailers. The goal of ComicsPRO is:

BCW supports the ComicsPRO organization, and its member comic shops, through several methods.

ComicsPRO retailers are pre-approved for a BCW wholesale account. All you have to do is complete a simple registration form and you can begin enjoying the benefits provided by BCW as a ComicsPRO member.

BCW offers a Comic Book Supplies Sample Kit for new ComicsPRO members, when the shop places a $200 BCW wholesale order. This sample kit includes comic bags, backing boards, boxes, and more. If your shop is a new ComicsPRO member, please contact Nancy or Ted at BCW to request this new member perk. Contact BCW

As an ongoing ComicsPRO benefit, members can save 5% off their BCW wholesale online order of $200 or more. To get this savings, members can request the coupon code after their wholesale account is established. Again, contact Nancy or Ted for details.

BCW offers Free Shipping on wholesale orders of $1,000 or more, when the order is delivered to a single commercial destination in the 48 contiguous United States. Complete details

Nancy Booksh, BCW’s Wholesale Account Manager, is available to assist ComicsPRO members with any questions related to BCW products, shipping, and the status of an order. Nancy is normally available from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm EST, Monday through Friday. Contact BCW
