Designed to help PREVIEWSworld users better locate comic books, graphic novels, collectibles and other specialty merchandise, Diamond Comic Distributors has added a robust item search engine to its consumer website, www.PREVIEWSworld.com. The new PREVIEWSworld item search features several search criteria and can present data on items as far back as 1992. Search can be accessed from the main page of the website, or directly at www.previewsworld.com/search.

Advanced search options allow for users to filter their searches by publisher, creator, release date, catalog issue, and item category – such as comics, graphic novels, toys and models, apparel, etc.

When searching by creator and publisher, PREVIEWSworld provides a dropdown box of search suggestions to autocomplete the user’s search.

After the user has entered their search criteria, PREVIEWSworld will display the results in four distinct categories:

  • Preorder Items. Items in the current PREVIEWS catalog, available for preorder from comic shops.
  • New Releases & Upcoming Items. Items just released or items available within the next few weeks in comic shops.
  • Available Now Items. Items that may be currently available at comic shops or can be ordered by retailers from Diamond if they are not in stock at the local comic shop. These are items that are in-stock in Diamond’s inventory.
  • Other Items. Mainly older and other items that are not currently available from Diamond but may still be available at local comic shops. Users are advised to check with their comic shop regarding the availability of these items.

“Go ahead, search it up!” exclaimed Andy Mueller, Diamond’s Consumer Marketing Manager. “Our new item search makes it much easier for customers to find information on new comics and products coming to comic book shops. Searching by creator is a great tool, that will not only allow customers to find books by their favorite creators, but also allow creators to send their fans a link to their full list of new and upcoming projects."

“The New Item Search is a key first step towards our upcoming PREVIEWSworld PULLBOX service,” continued Mueller. “In the future, you will be able to search for what you’re looking for, and then place an order with your local comic shop right from the search results page.”
