ONI PRESS MOVES TO SIMON & SCHUSTER From Diamond Book Distributors Posted by Nicole Bunge on October 4, 2017 @ 2:19 pm CT
Oni Press is moving its book distribution to Simon & Schuster, from Diamond Book Distributors (DBD). The sales and distribution agreement will take effect on March 1, 2018.
Oni Press’s comic book and graphic novel catalog includes the Scott Pilgrim series, Courtney Crumrin, The Sixth Gun, The Coldest City, Wet Moon and Letter 44; as well as titles based on Nickelodeon’s Invader ZIM and Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty.
“We are delighted to welcome Oni Press to our family of distribution clients,” said Michael Perlman, Vice President of Client Sales and Marketing, Simon & Schuster. “They have clearly found an audience of enthusiastic readers for their licensed and original titles, and we look forward to helping expand that audience worldwide.”
Oni had a long run with Diamond Book Distributors handling its book channel distribution, reaching back to 2002 (see “Oni and AiT/Planet Lar Sign with Diamond” and “Oni Renews with DBD”). Oni Press recently announced it was launching a new games imprint for the publisher’s creator-owned library of titles.
