Scout Comics Signs New Deal With Lunar Distribution
by James Ferguson
Scout Comics is expanding its footprint for comics, trade paperback and merchandise programs by signing a non-exclusive distribution deal with Luna Distribution. Scout Comics and all of its subsidiaries (Black Caravan, Scoot!, Outsider Comics, and Tracker Collectibles) will be available on Lunar’s platform with products scheduled for a June release.
“Since the launch of Scout in 2015, I have watched the company grow exponentially over the years and it’s been exciting to see more and more comic stores and fans discover our A-list titles and talent. We are thrilled for Lunar to help get our books into readers’ hands, and for more people than ever to discover the unique brand of Scout excellence.” — Brendan Deneen, CEO of Scout Comics
“We are excited to partner with Scout and provide distribution for their products to retailers. Their continued growth and commitment to diverse comics will make a great addition to the Lunar family. All new Scout products will be offered on FOC each week along with all DC Comic titles.”–Christina Merkler, co-owner, Lunar Distribution
Lunar Distribution is currently a distributor of DC Comics so Scout is in good company. This is a big move for the small publisher and it increases the amount of eyeballs it can get its products in front of.
