Diamond Book Distributors is pleased to announce that it has signed a worldwide distribution agreement with new publisher DSTLRY to exclusively distribute their products to North American and international book markets. This agreement also sees DSTLRY being distributed to the comic book specialty market through Diamond Comic Distributors.
DSTLRY is a next-generation comics publisher and collectibles company that redefines creator-owned comic books for consumers worldwide. Founded by comiXology veterans David Steinberger and Chip Mosher, DSTLRY aims to revolutionize the creator-publisher relationship by giving their founding creators an equity stake in the company, in addition to retaining ownership of their characters and concepts.
“Diamond has a 41-year history of expertise specializing in bringing comics and graphic novels to booksellers, local comic shops, and every nook and cranny around the globe. Diamond has been an integral foundation to the comic ecosystem, and I couldn’t imagine launching DSTLRY without Diamond’s aid,” said DSTLRY co-founder and CCO Chip Mosher.
DSTLRY’s debut title, The Devil’s Cut, compiles unfiltered stories from the most fearless creators, offering a distinct taste of the quality to come. The title offers 72 oversized pages printed on premium paper, featuring a flight of high-proof work from Founding Creators Mirka Andolfo, Brian Azzarello, Marc Bernardin, Elsa Charretier, Becky Cloonan, Lee Garbett, Jock, Joëlle Jones, Tula Lotay, Jamie McKelvie, Junko Mizuno, Stephanie Phillips, Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, and Ram V; edited by Founding Editor Will Dennis. DSTLRY’s first collected editions will hit shelves in 2024.
"We're thrilled to be working with David and Chip as they launch DSTLRY!” said Tim Lenaghan, Chief Purchasing Officer for Geppi Family Enterprises. “Both have always worked toward growing our industry in new and exciting ways and we can't wait to see what they and their entire team have in store for DSTLRY and Diamond looks forward to helping them bring this product to the market."
