Yen Press Expands Distribution Deal with Diamond to Include International Markets
Diamond to Offer Yen Titles in the UK and Ireland Book Markets
Effective June 5, 2017, Diamond Comic Distributors will assume exclusive sales and distribution for Yen Press outside of the North American market in traditional and non-traditional book channels, a deal that was announced today at London Book Fair 2017. This is a significant expansion of Yen’s existing relationship with Diamond for the comic book specialty market, and, most importantly, gives Diamond exclusive rights to offer Yen Press titles in the UK and Ireland book markets.
“One of Yen’s long-term goals has been to increase the availability of our books internationally. As we work with our licensors and creators to break down the boundaries that too often prevent us from putting books in reader’s hands globally, Diamond’s particular expertise with the comics and manga market around the world made them the natural choice as our partner in this effort. We’re extremely excited by the horizon’s this new collaboration will open up,” said Kurt Hassler, Publisher and Managing Director of Yen Press.
“We’re extremely excited to work with Yen Press and look forward to helping them reach new international markets. We’ve talked with Kurt and the team at Yen Press for a long time on how our global presence in other markets can help them reach their full sales potential and we’re ready to go to work and deliver on that promise,” said Tim Lenaghan, Diamond’s VP-Purchasing.
Yen Press, LLC is a joint venture between Kadakowa Corporation and Hachette Book Group, dedicated to publishing manga and graphic novels for adults and young readers. Founded in 2006, Yen Press has quickly risen to become one of the largest and most prolific publishers of manga and original graphic novels in the North American marketplace and has become a driving force in the introduction of light novels to new readers through its Yen On imprint.
Customers and fans looking to pre-order Yen Press titles should contact their local retailer, or find a comic shop near them at www.comicshoplocator.com.
