DC Comics Signs A New Distribution Deal With Universal Distribution

by Olly MacNamee

I love comics, but the business side of it leaves me somewhat cold. So, forgive me if I dial this own in and inform you that DC Comics are to be distributed by Universal Distribution and leave you with a cut and paste press release from DC Comics:

“DC and Universal Distribution have signed a new global agreement under which Universal Distribution will become a direct distributor of DC’s comics. Beginning in October 2022, retailers will have the ability to place orders with Universal Distribution on DC’s periodicals, graphic novels, and collected editions releasing in January 2023 and beyond.

DC will continue their Direct Market distribution relationship with Lunar Distribution and Diamond UK for distribution of periodicals and graphic novels, and Penguin Random House for distribution of graphic novels and collected editions, worldwide.”

Got it? Good.
