Diamond Becomes the Exclusive Distributor for Aftershock
Diamond Comic Distributors has been named the exclusive worldwide distributor for comic book publisher AfterShock Comics in English-speaking countries. The agreement includes distribution rights to comic book specialty stores and in book publishing through its sister company, Diamond Book Distributors.
Helmed by industry veterans, Eisner Award-winning publisher and editor Joe Pruett and Mike Marts, AfterShock Comics launched in April 2015 and quickly became a rising star of comic book publishers. With major talent from Marguerite Bennett (InSeXts and Animosity), Garth Ennis (Dreaming Eagles and Jimmy’s Bastards), Warren Ellis (Shipwreck), Brian Azzarello (American Monster), Paul Jenkins (Replica and Alters) and powerhouse creative team Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti (SuperZero), AfterShock continues to generate industry buzz with news making titles from the most celebrated creators in the business.
In the March PREVIEWS catalog, retailers and fans can pre-order AfterShock Comics’ newest titles: Pestilence #1 by Frank Tieri and Disney illustrator Oleg Okunev, which sees ex-Crusaders fighting against the first non-recorded Zombie Infestation during the Dark Ages; and The Normals #1 by Adam Glass and Dennis Calero, a new rush-of-blood-to-the-head series that’ll make fans question reality itself.
