ComicsMonkey.com, a revolutionary new comics distribution service for direct sales market comics shops, brings comics distribution into the 21st century. ComicsMonkey.com uses print-on-demand technology and the world wide web to eliminate the hassles of traditional distribution -- no more pre-sales, no more advance ordering, and absolutely no more worries about late shipping. With its entire catalog and ordering system online ComicsMonkey.com simplifies the ordering process while also providing retailers with more information than ever before about the products available to them.
"I think people will be amazed by the sheer volume of great comics that they had no idea even existed," ," says ComicsMonkey co-founder Barry Gregory. "We've got a selection that really runs the gamut. We've got comics, manga, graphic novels, and trade paperbacks. We've got everything from slick, full color superhero comics to black & white underground style comics and everything in-between. We've got comics from well known industry veterans as well as by talented newcomers. There are hundreds of titles available right now and we add to our catalog every day.
"The majority of our products have never been available to the direct market before and because of that we're doing our best to take the guess work out of what to order. Each item listed in our catalog comes with sample pages as well as a series overview and an individual issue synopsis. We want retailers to really see what's available to them."
ComicsMonkey.com's products are available to all brick-and-mortar comic book specialty shops as well as to established online comic shops. There are no minimum orders, no fees of any type, discounts up to 50% off of cover price, and free shipping on orders that total more than $500 retail.
All ComicsMonkey.com orders are printed and processed by Ka-Blam Digital Printing (www.ka-blam.com), the leader in the rapidly expanding world of comics printed on demand.
ComicsMonkey.com is a subsidary of 01 Comics Inc. Founded in 2003, 01 Comics is a publisher services company dedicated to serving the needs of independent publishers through its network of affliated web sites.
