Humor Publisher @Sitcomics Announces Brand New Distribution Model

Look alive, comic book fans! There’s still one more gift tucked under your trees.

Introducing “Sell-Through Distribution,” a new national comic book distribution system from Santa Monica-based publishing startup Sitcomics that will ring in the new year by putting the buying power back in the hands of readers.

Sitcomics publisher and TV sitcom writer Darin Henry had this to say:

“The last few years have seen a seismic shift towards binge entertainment,” “Audiences now expect their entertainment to be complete, immediate, affordable and very, very good. Sell-Through Distribution is a 21st century approach that gives comic book readers across the United States the accessibility and format that’s perfectly suited for this new Binge Age.”

Sell-Through Distribution will usher in The Binge Age of Comics on Wednesday January
3rd when over 100 comic shops in all 50 states, including Comix Experience in San
Francisco, Mile High Comics in Denver, Fat Jack’s Comicrypt in Philadelphia and all
eleven locations of Graham Crackers Comics, begin handing out free copies of The
2018 Binge Book Catalog to their pull list subscribers. The glossy, 8-page catalog
contains complete solicitations for Sitcomics’ 2018 wave of Binge Books, the all-new,
exclusive comic book format that gives readers a complete, 64-page, full-color, story arc
for only $3.99. Customers have until January 25th to place orders at participating
shops, but instead of the usual three-month gap between solicitations and release date,
Sell-Through Distribution allows readers to pick up their brand-new Sitcomics less than
a week later, on Wednesday January 31st, 2018!

The creation of Sell-Through Distribution was inspired by Sitcomics’ unique 64-page
Binge Book format which guarantees readers three times the usual amount of story
and art for only $3.99.

“Comics aren’t necessities. They’re entertainment and people
now have infinite choices for how to spend their limited time and money,”

explains Henry, whose TV credits include writing for Seinfeld and Futurama as well as
executive producing the hit Disney sitcom KC Undercover.  Henery goes on to explain:

“Comic book publishers’ outdated approach of charging four dollars for an unsatisfying chunk of a story is no longer viable when that same amount of money can buy two weeks of online streaming. My new Binge Book format gives every reader, new and old, a satisfying, self-contained entertainment experience.”

Sitcomics is inviting every comic book store in the US to take part in its Sell-Through
Distribution System but retailers won’t be asked to stock any Binge Books unless and
until their customers use the catalog to order them. Readers who want more for their
four-dollar entertainment investment should ask their local comic book shop to order the totally free 2018 Binge Book Catalog by emailing the publisher at editor@sitcomics.net. Shops that do decide to stock Sitcomics for their shelves will be eligible for the company’s new returnability policy.

Sitcomics will announce its complete solicitations, including plot summaries and creative
teams on January 2nd, 2018. Additional announcements will follow, including locations
of appearances by Sitcomics creators in comic shops across the USA on January 31st, 2018.
