DSTLRY, the new comics publisher startup helmed by ComiXology co-founder David Steinberger and former comiXology Head of Content Chip Mosher, has signed on with Lunar Distribution for distribution to the comics specialty retail market.

The publisher also inked a non-exclusive distribution deal with Diamond Comic Distributors last week, as well as an exclusive contract with Diamond Book Distributors for distribution to the book channel (see “DSTLRY Announces Distribution Deal with Diamond”).

DSTLRY will publish single-issue comics as oversized, premium-quality print editions and limited-edition digital comics (see “Former ComiXology Execs to Mix Digital and Print with New Publisher”).  Their first publication, The Devil’s Cut,will be an anthology of work by DSTLRY’s founding creators, all of whom have an equity stake in the company.

“In a few brief years, Lunar has emerged as one of the most dependable and professional distributors in the industry,” Mosher said in a statement accompanying the announcement.

“Chip and David have a reputation for being innovative and exploring novel approaches to increase industry growth,” said Lunar co-founder Christina Merkler.  “The creators behind The Devil’s Cut are truly outstanding, hinting at the books to come.  We can’t wait to get this line into retailers' hands.”
