Unshelved comic strip for 4/8/2004

Out of Control

No one is more of a control freak than we at Overdue Media. We self-publish, self-merchandise, self-syndicate... we may not actually print the books ourselves but don't think we haven't considered it. So it took a few late-night conversations and perhaps a small intervention by our friends and family to realize that we couldn't reach our potential without a little help. And what help we have found! When we sat down to choose a distributor for our books there was one name at the top of our list, and that name was Diamond. Diamond Comic Distributors is the world's largest distributor of English-language comic books and related merchandise, and their book arm Diamond Book Distributors has signed up some of the biggest and best names in comics. Today we are proud and excited to join that list. Read all about it here.

What does this mean? For libraries and retailers our books will be available from all major wholesalers (and Diamond themselves). With a little luck (and some not-too-subtle requests by you, our fans) Unshelved books will start appearing in the shelves of book stores, comic shops, and libraries nationwide.

So we hope you'll join our therapists in celebrating this milestone. In the sage words of Joel Goodson's dad, 'Sometimes you just gotta say, "what the heck!"'

P.S. Yup, that was the big news.
