Diamond Comic Distributors announced an exclusive worldwide distribution agreement with Canadian publisher Chapterhouse Comics.

The deal will make Diamond exclusive worldwide distribution outlet for the comic book specialty market, as well for the book trade market through its sister company Diamond Book Distributors.

"Diamond has helped us grow from a fledgling company to the largest publisher of comics and graphic novels in Canada,” said Chapterhouse Comics Publisher, Fadi Hakim. “We're honored to be invited to join their thriving book division and can't wait to get started!"

Chapterhouse Comics was founded in 2015 in Toronto, Ontario. Chapterhouse is home to the iconic Canadian superhero Captain Canuck, for which the publisher offered a Free Comic Book Day title this spring (see “Silver FCBD Comics Announced”). Chapterhouse’s portfolio also includes golden age adventurer Freelance, Northguard, Pitiful Human Lizard, and creator-owned titles Die Kitty Die, Spirit Leave and The Fourth Planet.
