What is it about? Well, it is a Multi-Phased Campaign that is focused on supporting local Comic Book and Game Stores as they rebuild, reopen, and restart. It was centered around the rallying cry “Our Comeback will be bigger than our setback!” Diamond and Alliance created the campaign in partnership with Industry Influencers and Publishers to shine a spotlight on the unique relationship that consumers have with their local comic and game shops, while raising funds to help support restart efforts; Steve Geppi, the CEO and Chairman of the Geppi Family Enterprises had this to say about describing the new Campaign.

“To say these last few months have been challenging would be an understatement,” said Steve Geppi, Chairman and CEO, Geppi Family Enterprises. “I have heard from many retailers and everyone is excited about safely reopening, restarting and rebuilding. I truly believe that our comeback will be bigger than our setback and am excited to kick off this campaign in support   of our industry and our retailers.”

Marvel Select Classic Green Goblin vs. Spider Man Figures Straight from the cover of Amazing Spider-Man #39 comes the next Marvel Select action figure, The 5 1/2-inch Green Goblin! Toy Biz and Diamond Select bring to life one of the biggest moments in Spider-Man lore – the unmasking of the web-slinger at the hands of his greatest foe! Featuring 12 points of articulation, the Green Goblin includes a detachable pumpkin bomb and bomb satchel, Goblin Glider with stand, and a Peter Parker/Spider-Man victim accessory figure. Packaged in a deluxe blister card package. A maniacal manifestation of Norman Osborn’s chemical -induced insanity, the Green Goblin has done more than any other villain to wreck the web-slinger’s world. An accident involving an untested, experimental formula granted Norman Osborn superhuman strength, a heightened intellect and an accelerated healing factor – at the cost of his sanity. The Green Goblin rides a high-flying Goblin Glider and carries a power-packed arsenal including incendiary and concussion grenades, theatrically cast in the form of miniature jack o’ lanterns and gloves capable of discharging electrical pulses of up to 10,000 volts. He is Spider-Man’s greatest enemy; he has been, almost from the beginning.
