“I’m looking forward to the 2011 ComicsPRO meeting. I’ve spent my entire professional career working in the direct market and the ComicsPRO event provides a unique opportunity for comics’ specialty retailers to come together to actively work with their key suppliers. I plan to discuss the changes I’ve seen over the last 20 years and I’m anxious to hear what our retail partners are seeing at their cash registers,” said Adams.
“The perspective Ted Adams will bring to the ComicsPRO meeting is one that has been forged by the growth and dynamism of the comics’ market over the last couple of decades, “ said Joe Field owner of Flying Colors Comics in Concord CA and the organization’s president. “Early response for the ComicsPRO event in Dallas is very encouraging.
