Action Lab Extends Partnership with Diamond Comics


Diamond Comic Distributors is the world's largest distributor of English-language comics. Every major publisher gets their books into readers' hands via the distributor, but it's not just major publishers who use them. Smaller publishers also distribute through them and Action Lab just so happens to be one of them. To that end, they've renewed their supply agreement with Diamond that gives them the rights to continue to exclusively distribute Action Lab’s new releases of comics and graphic novels to book markets worldwide, including comic shops, bookstores, libraries and other mass merchandise outlets.

“We look forward to a successful future as we continue our relationship with Action Lab Entertainment distributing their publications within our book and direct markets worldwide,” said Diamond’s Vice President of Purchasing, John Wurzer. “Action Lab publishes a variety of comics and graphic novels filled with stories for audiences of all ages to enjoy, and we look forward to bringing those publications to retailers and their customers.”

Customers looking to pre-order Action Lab titles should contact their local retailer, or find a comic shop near them at www.comicshoplocator.com. New retailers interested in purchasing Action Lab titles are encouraged to contact Diamond’s New Accounts Department at newaccounts@diamondcomics.com or via phone at 443-318-8001.

“Everyone at Action Lab would like to thank Diamond for their continued support to put our books in the hands of fans worldwide, and belief in the mission of Action Lab to publish new and outstanding quality titles in all genres of the comics industry,” said Action Lab’s CEO & Publisher Bryan Seaton.
