Besides launching a new magazine on Kickstarter today, FairSquare Comics has signed a multi-year agreement with Diamond Book Distributors (DBD) and Diamond Comics for all comics, graphic novels and magazines.
“At this stage of our development, and with the numerous changes our industry has been experiencing during the past year, finding the right distribution partner has been quite an arduous process. We had conversations different distributors but in the end, it became clear that the DBD team was the right partner for us. Yes, we’re aware that recently, Diamond has been going through changes. But FairSquare Comics is walking to the beat of its own drums and we believe that Diamond’s expertise and amazing experience in comics and graphic novels makes them the natural choice to help our company rise to new heights. We’re thrilled to bring all our current and future projects to every retailer in the United States and the world thanks to Diamond.” States Fabrice Sapolsky, founder and CEO of FairSquare Comics.
“I’m very happy to welcome Fabrice to the Diamond Book Distributors roster. When we started talking a few months ago, I gravitated toward his concepts and his plan for FairSquare Comics. It’s exciting to partner with someone as passionate and dedicated to bringing comic stories to people and to the page – from all voices. I can’t wait to get started working with these books.” Adds Josh Hayes, Executive Vice President, Diamond Book Distributors.
Starting this Fall, graphic novels like NOIR IS THE NEW BLACK, INTERTWINED and ONE-HIT WONDER will be made available to retailers, as well as MUTINY Magazine.
