Diamond Comic Distributors to Carry UK Publisher, TPub
(BALTIMORE, Maryland) — (April 8, 2015) —Diamond is pleased to announce a new distribution agreement with British comic book and graphic novel publisher TPub, expanding Diamond’s abilities to distribute TPub’s titles worldwide into comic book specialty markets, gaming and hobby markets, as well as book markets through Diamond Book Distributors. TPub’s publications will be solicited in Diamond’s monthly PREVIEWS catalog where comic book and thriller fans can pre-order TPub graphic novels.
TPub caters to the thrill seeking crowd. Their stories are filled with suspense, terror, mystery and a hint of humor to keep readers on the edge of their seats. Since their beginnings in 2011, TPub’s collections of graphic novels were only available to purchase in the UK or online. The agreement with Diamond will allow comic book shops and book stores to have the opportunity to carry TPub’s titles, expanding reach and audience engagement.
“We are pleased to build on our original agreement with TPub and have the opportunity to offer their titles into new outlets through Diamond Book Distributors,” said Diamond’s Vice President of Purchasing, John Wurzer. “Through our combined efforts, Diamond hopes to bring TPub new success within the industry, increasing audience awareness and continued demand for their printed works.”
"We're very excited to be expanding our agreement with Diamond to include the bookstore market,” said Head of TPub Operations Ryan O’Sullivan. “As creators of graphic novels exclusively, selling our books to bookstores, libraries, and schools was an obvious next step for us as a publishing house. Our goal at TPub has always been to get even more people reading comics, and with the increased reach we now have through Diamond, we're ready to do just that."
The top titles TPub produces includes the Twisted Dark series and the graphic novels, Tortured Life and Tabatha. In 2016, TPub will be breaking into new genres to include titles containing super heroes, dramatic titles and autobiography works for younger readers.
Customers looking to pre-order TPub Publisher titles should contact their local retailer, or find a comic shop near them at www.comicshoplocator.com. New retailers interested in purchasing TPub’s titles are encouraged to contact Diamond’s New Accounts Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 443-318-8001.
