Frank Miller Presents Inks Exclusive Distribution Deal with Diamond
Diamond Comic Distributors has announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Frank Miller Presents (FMP) to exclusively distribute their products to comic book specialty markets worldwide. Diamond was also awarded the rights to exclusively distribute FMP’s new releases to the book market worldwide under the banner of Diamond Book Distributors.
FMP was announced at the end of April and features Dan DiDio as publisher while Silenn Thomas, the CEO of Frank Miller Ink, serving as COO of FMP.
Frank Miller Presents is an independent publishing company founded by Frank Miller, an American comic book writer, penciller and inker, novelist, screenwriter, film director, and producer known for his comic book stories and graphic novels such as his run on Daredevil and subsequent Daredevil: Born Again, The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One, Sin City, and 300. Miller will act as editor-in-chief and is joined by Dan Didio, former co-publisher of DC, who will serve as publisher.
Frank Miller Presents focuses creating and curating a line of comics to capture Miller’s distinct visual style while also working with a range of talent, from comics veterans to rising artists. FMP’s inaugural slate will include a new Sin City comic and a return to Ronin, the sci-fi samurai creation Miller wrote and drew prior to finding mainstream crossover success with Dark Knight.
FMP will aim to produce two to four titles a year, which will be a mix of Miller’s creations and new works. Miller is returning to the world of his acclaimed noir series Sin City with a Western tale set in the city’s past, titled Sin City 1858. Ronin Book Two is a follow-up to the six-issue miniseries originally published by DC in 1983 and 1984 and focused on a ronin reincarnated in a bleak future.
The titles for the new, original works are Pandora and Ancient Enemies.
