In its continuing move away from Diamond Comic Distributors and into a new era of distribution to comic stores, DC Comics has announced the roster of four distributors it will use for its DC Direct statue, figure, and collectible line.  In addition to Lunar Distribution and UCS Comic Distributors, Inc., the distributors DC is using for comics (see "DC Cutting Off Diamond"), DC Direct products will also be available to retailers in North America from EE Distribution, the wholesale division of Entertainment Earth, Inc., and Sideshow.  Sideshow will also handle all territories outside of North America.

The new distribution system will begin immediately; Diamond Comics Distributors and Diamond Select Toys will not be distributing any products scheduled to be in market after May 1, 2020, and any orders placed through Diamond companies for those products have been canceled.  DCD and DST will continue to fill reorders for previously released product.

DC Direct showed off its 2020 line at Toy Fair (see "Preview: DC Direct Reveals at NY Toy Fair").
