Matthew Shepherd, Michael Shoyket and David Hedgecock rework a few pages from Captain Blood to address the problems independent comics have with distribution, ultimately asking readers to “demand more from comics.” And, in one panel, not to download comics … which seemed very unpirate-like.
In an effort to get their new Disney/Pixar titles “into the hands of every child out there,” BOOM! has teamed with Kable Distribution Services for a national newsstand distribution agreement for their BOOM! Kids imprint (which got a new website this week as well).
The deal includes newsstand distribution for their Incredibles, Cars and Muppet Show comics.
“We want to get our line of Pixar/Disney comics into the hands of every child out there,” said Ross Richie, publisher of BOOM! Studios, in a very short press release. “Working with KDS, who has a strong record with handling kids comics in the newsstand market, I am confident that we will meet that goal.”
