Alterna Comics Brings Comics Back to the Newsstand in Distribution Deal With PDG
On the heels of successfully bringing back newsprint comics to comic shops across the world, creator-owned comic book and graphic novel publisher Alterna Comics has signed a deal with PDG to distribute their comic books to newsstands as well.
Over 300 stores will be part of the initial test market for titles, which rolls out in full on August 1st but has already begun at larger chain retailers like Barnes & Noble and Books-A-Million.
Alterna is also currently considering expansion into Five Below and Toys “R” Us stores and has begun talks with both retailers.
The Alterna Comics newsprint line features titles priced between $1.00 to $1.50 and includes all ages titles as well as titles for teens and adults.
