Graphic novel publisher Locust Moon Press has signed a supply agreement with Diamond Comic Distributors to distribute their line of publications within the
comic book specialty market and book markets, including comic book specialty stores, book stores, mass-market merchandisers, libraries and other outlets worldwide.
The West Philadelphia-based publisher, dubbed by the AV Club as “a major new force in the comic industry,” is known for producing critically-acclaimed, unique collaborations between some of the greatest comic writers and artists of today. Locust Moon is perhaps best known for Little Nemo: Dream
Another Dream, an anthology tribute to revolutionary cartoonist Winsor McCay, which featured contributions by more than 100 comic creators. The anthology won both Best Anthology and Best Publication Design at the 2015 Eisner Awards. The book is offered again as a “Star of the Month” title for the October PREVIEWS catalog.
Also available as a spotlighted title in the October catalog is the publisher’s latest title, Prometheus Eternal. A collaboration between the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Locust Moon Press, the title features some of the biggest visionaries in modern comics as they join in the artistic tradition of exploring the timeless myth of Prometheus.
“We’re so pleased to be working with Diamond Books to get our comics in front of readers,” said Josh O’Neill, publisher of Locust Moon Press. “Locust Moon has been expanding its publishing slate very quickly, and there’s no one we’d rather be represented by than the greatest comic distributor in the country.”
“Diamond is thrilled to expand our relationship with Locust Moon Press into new distribution channels,” said Diamond’s Executive Director of Purchasing Tim Lenaghan. “We’re proud to add their award winning list of titles to our catalog and look forward to expanding their reach worldwide in all markets.” Customers looking to pre-order Locust Moon Press titles should contact their local retailer, or find a comic shop near them at www.comicshoplocator.com.
