Diamond Comic Distributors loses second major client in a year

March 26, 2021

The Avengers won’t be assembling through Diamond Comic Distributors Inc. anymore. Marvel Comics announced Thursday it has entered into an exclusive, multi-year sales and distribution agreement with a division of New York-based Penguin Random House to deliver newly published and backlist comic books, trade collections and graphic novels to comic shops across the world. For Cockeysville-based Diamond, the deal marks the loss of a second major client in less than a year after more than two decades as the dominant distributor in the comic book industry. DC Comics ended a 25-year relationship with Diamond last year.
