London-based Titan Books has decided to go with CDS (Client Distribution Services) for distribution to the American bookstore market.  Headed by Nick Landau, one of the founders of the Forbidden Planet chain of pop culture stores, Titan Books specializes in media tie-in ('Making Of') books and magazines, and UK editions of American TV and movie-based comics.  Among other notable licenses, Titan Books has the reprint rights for the original Marvels Transformers comics (see 'More Transformers Trades From Titan').
