PRHPS to Distribute Dark Horse Comics to Direct Market

Penguin Random House Publishers Services will sell and distribute Dark Horse Comics’s new and backlist comic book periodicals, graphic novels, and manga to direct market comic shops. The agreement, which begins June 1, expands on the current partnership between PRHPS and Dark Horse, in which PRHPS sells and distributes Dark Horse’s trade-book frontlist and backlist to bookstores. It is the latest agreement in PRHPS's continued effort to expand into the direct market, where retailers can choose to order Dark Horse products direct from PRH, or through Diamond Comic Distributors.
