Devil’s Due Publishing will no longer be distributed by Diamond Comic Distributors and Diamond Book Distributors, according to an announcement from the publisher released Tuesday. Devil’s Due products will be sold to the comic channel directly from the publisher and through Haven Comic Distributors, and to the book channel through a new distributor to be named soon.
“I am hopeful that we will be able to work something out with Diamond in the future,” Devil’s Due President Josh Blaylock said. “Until we verify a number of questions regarding sales from late 2008 through the present, DDP will be utilizing other avenues of distribution to move back stock, as well as limited releases of select new material.”
The dispute apparently stems from offsets against new Devils Due sales by Diamond for returns and fees.
