Oni Press partnering with Lunar for comic shop distribution (but isn't leaving Ruby)

On Press (as well as its sis imprints Lion Forge as well as Difference Press) has joined DC in partnering with the upstart new comics' distribution company Lunar to obtain its comics and comics to North American comic stores. Unlike DC nevertheless, On will be maintaining its long-standing comic store distribution handle Ruby Comics Distributors — however Ruby will now much longer be On's supplier to comic stores.

We're happy to move right into the future together with Lunar as part of our ongoing initiative to offer merchants of all sizes and shapes with their preferred On, Lion Forge, and also Difference titles, says On Press author James Lucas Jones. With the enhancement of Lunar as one of our circulation companions, we are delighted to offer brand-new alternatives and opportunities to the comic book specialty market. Lunar shares our dedication to proceed to expand this essential market with each other.

On is still working out when the initial week of new On Press comics will be distributed through Lunar.

On Press' vice president of sales and marketing Alex Segura describes the new partnership as additive, which the goal isn't to change Ruby. Segura also stated that On didn't have any kind of talks with Penguin Random House, who recently started dispersing to comic shops many thanks to an offer with Wonder Comics.

Diamond has been fantastic partners to us and remains to advocate for our books to stores, states Segura. This is truly just concerning giving comic stores much more choices when it pertains to ordering On publications and also products.

Lunar Circulation was released in 2020 by the mail-order comics large Price cut Comic Publication Service (DUBS) after DC chose to stop its 25-year relationship with Diamond. Lunar originally shared comic store distribution obligations for DC Comics with one more retailer-turned-distributor, yet that 2nd startup terminated operations leaving Lunar as DC's main pipe to comic stores.

On will certainly currently be Lunar's fourth publishing client, after DC, Precursor Comics, and also Ahoy Comic books; the last two authorized with Lunar in March and also July 2021, respectively.

Lunar is thrilled to be partnering with On Press, Lunar co-owner Christina Merger says. On is known in the market as the independent publisher that stores can rely on to bring them excellent quality and also inclusive items. With titles from Tea Dragon Society to Scott Explorer, they are an excellent enhancement to the Lunar family.

Currently, Lunar only distributes to North American comic stores, so worldwide comic store circulation of On tasks will certainly still be de facto unique to Diamond. Outside of comics shops, On's other distribution platforms continue to be the very same — Simon & Schuster take care of the Portland-based publisher's book trade company, as well as all significant digital comics systems lug On Press titles.

The Oni-Lunar collaboration felt like a no-brainer to us. When Henry Barajas came aboard the Advertising and marketing group just a few months after I joined On, most of us took an extensive appearance at our direct market side of the business, says Segura. He was a huge supporter for increasing the choices we provide to our comic shop retail companions.

We have actually all understood Christina and the Lunar group for a long time, so it was very easy to find out methods to make a collaboration job in tandem with our existing circulation take care of Diamond. We're thrilled to offer retailers even more ways to get On products, and also we're expecting working hand in hand with Lunar and their terrific group to enhance our company.

But there's one catch, yet potentially two...
