Diamond Comic Distributors

Diamond Comic Distributors was established in 1982 to provide comic book specialty retailers with wholesale, non-returnable comic books and related merchandise.

After more than 30 years of service, Diamond has emerged as the world's largest distributor of English-language comics, graphic novels, and related pop-culture merchandise, with a network of strategically-located Distribution Centers throughout the world.

Our Founder and President, Steve Geppi, doesn't believe in second-place efforts. He knows that Diamond's success comes from offering retail customers the best — in products, in discounts, and in personalized customer service. That's why we bring our customers the merchandise they want at a fair price, and deliver it to them quickly, accurately, and reliably.

Above all, Diamond treats its customers with one important thing: respect.

Hake's Americana & Collectibles


Hake's Americana & Collectibles is widely known as the nation's premier pop culture collectible auction house, setting record prices in hundreds of collecting areas. In 1965, while still a college student, Founder Ted Hake began to issue carbon copy sales lists consisting of political pinback buttons. Customer reaction was beyond all expectations, with many customers disappointed to learn that an item of interest had been sold a day or two before they could place an order. To address this problem, Hake decided to conduct his sales in auction format. Over the years, Hake has authored 15 collectibles price guides on subjects ranging all the way from presidential campaign artifacts to television collectibles. Hake’s Americana & Collectibles joined the Diamond family in March 2004.
