Long story short: la DC divorzia da UCS e si affida al 100% a Lunar (che a Maggio era stato più lento a partire). HoVistoCose ha già l’account da Lunar ed è pronta alla transizione (inoltre: la DC ha promesso che sarà semplice perché UCS passerà lo storico degli ordini “unfilled” a Lunar quindi non ci sarà il panico successo per il cambio Diamond/UCS). Dettagli nella mail della DC che segue.
To Direct Market Partners:
We hope that you, your family, and your employees have been able to stay safe and healthy during this unprecedented time. As we promised in our communication earlier this year, we want to provide you with the latest changes in our business.
In April, UCS Comic Distributors and Lunar Distribution partnered with DC to transition to a multi-distributor model for the Direct Market, at a time when comic book distribution was on pause and the supply chain disrupted as a result of the safer-at-home orders that were put in place. We are now in our next phase where, as of January 1, 2021, DC publications will continue to be distributed in the Direct Market by Lunar Distribution, Diamond UK, and Penguin Random House (for graphic novels and collected editions only). UCS Comic Distributors will no longer distribute DC publications, but retailers can continue to order from UCS through the end of November.
We want to take this time to sincerely thank UCS for their help during this transition, and we will continue to provide all our support to UCS as retailers shift their accounts over to Lunar or other distributors.
As always, DC remains committed to comics shops as the cornerstone of our industry. This community is the source of countless stories and relationships that inspire us and our fans every day. We thank you for your support, and we will continue to provide business updates as they happen.
The DC Team
