DC ends relationship with the distributor, UCS

Another partnership has ended, this time it’s DC and the Distributor, UCS. You may recall the announcement of their partnership in the Spring when the Publisher and Diamond Comics Distribution ended their partnership, going with UCS and Lunar. But this was to change, in a new letter from DC to retailers according to Michael Doran of Newsarama (GamesRadar), the Direct Market Partnership will end as of January 1st, 2021.


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.

UCS was created in the Spring, as an outgrowth of Midtown Comics, which already has a robust mail-order retail Comic Book Business. For more on this exclusive story, Newsarama has the details.
