Bleeding Cool has learnt that there is a document from Diamond Comics Distributors being sent to comics publishers. It addresses a new digital distribution service for comic books from this long standing print comics distribution company.
The proposal is still in the early stages, and Diamond have a lot of people to talk to, from publishers to comic stores. But it looks like it is really happening. However, I knew little else, and I didnâ€™t know if Diamond were going to cut out the comics store, as so many other digital delivery systems have.
Not a chance. When contacted, Diamond representatives told me;
Diamond Comic Distributors has been working on a digital program which will be entirely focused on driving sales of Digital comic related content through brick and mortar comic book specialty retailers.
We anticipate making an announcement in the near future. Diamond doesnâ€™t sell direct to consumers â€“ as weâ€™ve always preferred to drive sales through the comic book specialty retailer, who so loyally supports our suppliers, publishers and Diamond.
Rich goes on to get some excellent feedback from various comic book retailers for their opinion.
