Trajectory, a digital distributor and developer, and Diamond Comics Distributors announced an initiative at New York Comic Con to provide an expanded catalogue of digital comics and graphic novels to schools and libraries.
Trajectory entered a multi-year agreement with Diamond Comics Distributors earlier this year to provide conversion and global digital distribution for Diamond’s distribution clients. The new library/school initiative will include collaboration with such distributors as the Ingram Content Group and Follett School Solutions.
Trajectory publisher Scott Beatty said, “Currently we have over 10,000 digital titles in production” from Diamond publishers that will be available to schools and libraries.
Diamond Comic Distributors v-p of purchasing John Wurzer said, “Schools and libraries can be incubators for the future appreciation of comic books and graphic novels and we are happy to be working with Trajectory to foster that.”
Kelly Gallagher, v-p content acquisition, Ingram Content Group, said, “Comic and graphic novel content is in demand by readers.” He added that “Ingram is excited about our collaborative work with Trajectory to be providing comics and graphic novel content to the library market through our leading MyiLibrary e-book platform.”
