ALTERNA COMICS FULLY EMBRACES DIRECT DISTRIBUTION AND LEAVES DIAMOND COMICS DISTRIBUTORS

Peter Simeti Publisher of Alterna Comics announces that they will split from Diamond Comics Distributors.

At Alterna, taking care of our readers has always been our main priority. Getting them books in a fun, easy, and accessible way; making sure we’re putting out great content at an affordable price; reaching the widest possible audience — these things are important to us, but unfortunately, have been very difficult to do effectively while working within the current distribution system.

@ALTERNACOMICS is EXPANDING!

Thanks to our readers and supportive retailers, 2018 was the biggest year in Alterna Comics history. We have some BIG plans for the years ahead and the first part of those plans includes moving to a state of the art storage center and increasing the size of our space to a 10×10 area so we can safely and easily warehouse more books and shipping materials — and have the room we need to continue to grow.
