Hi Guys,

I'm currently using ComicsMonkey. You do have to publish your books through Ka-Blam, to use their service. They will distribute your books Worldwide. You don't pay for printing or other costs. And they pay you a percentage per sale. I would suggest that you create a retailers email list of your own, if you are interested in this, and advertise your books yourself before the catalogue comes out. Still no guarantees it will sell but it maybe worth a couple emails. E-mails are cheap.

If you want to send out promotional emails to shops just be polite and ask if its ok to send your material first. That way its not spam because they'll be expecting it every know and then.

Sorry If telling you something you already know.

James :)

"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."'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.
