Diamond Comic Distributors has been named the exclusive worldwide distributor for comic book publisher Chapterhouse Comics. The agreement includes distribution rights to comic book specialty stores as well as the book market through its sister company, Diamond Book Distributors.

“Diamond is excited to continue our partnership with Chapterhouse,” said Diamond Vice President of Purchasing, Tim Lenaghan. “With the recent relaunch of Captain Canuck and a strong showing at this year’s Free Comic Book Day, we look forward to working with the entire Chapterhouse team on reaching new audiences around the world.”
