IDW Publishing Hires Michael J. Martens as Director of Trade Sales

IDW Publishing has tapped Michael J. Martens as its new Director of Trade Sales, effective immediately. Starting in April, Penguin Random House will serve as IDW’s distribution partner for trade paperback and hardcover titles to the book and mass markets, and in his new role, Martens will act as the publisher’s direct liaison.

With more than three decades of industry experience to draw from, Martens’ invaluable knowledge of the inner workings of the comic and book category will greatly extend IDW’s reach in bookstores worldwide, getting the publisher’s massive library of backlist content in front of new readers and strengthening its foothold in that thriving marketplace.

Martens’ previous experience includes Dark Horse Comics where he held a variety of positions including VP of Marketing, VP of Business Development, and VP of Trade Sales before resigning in 2016. Prior to that, his storied comics career began at Capital City Distribution as one of their first employees in 1982 where he wore multiple hats including Transportation Manager, Sales Manager, and Vice President of Customer Service.
