About Comics Chooses Diamond
By Brian Jacks
About Comics has selected Diamond Book Distributors as the exclusive U.S. and non-exclusive worldwide distributor of English-language editions of its graphic novels and books to the bookstore, library, warehouse, and mass merchandise markets.
Founded in 1998, About Comics is a publishing imprint created by Nat Gertler, who has written comics for dozens of publishers big and small. The About Comics line has evolved from publishing just Eisner-nominated Gertler’s own fiction – such as the critically acclaimed The Factor – to including a range of work by some of the most respected names in comics. Most notable in the About Comics catalog are Panel One and Panel Two, volumes of annotated comic book scripts from professionals, both of which are renowned throughout the industry for their insight into the process of writing comics.
