Diamond Book Distributors (DBD) is a division of Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc., and states that it is dedicated to making a wide selection of its graphic novels and other pop-culture merchandise available to bookstores, libraries, schools, mass merchants and more worldwide. Based in Hunt Valley, MD, they state that their team of professionals is "committed to helping DBD's client publishers tell their stories, grow their businesses and reach new customers. We work to provide insight at every stage of the publishing process — from initial concept, to marketing, sales, and distribution." That "DBD is a category leader worldwide for graphic novels & manga. For the past 20+ years, DBD has helped support everyone from small publishers looking to grow their presence all the way up to the names you have come to know and love, each one garnering an attention to detail we pride ourselves on." And like to remind people that "Unlike many other "distributors" who offer distribution as a side business, DBD is not a publisher — 100 percent of our focus is on our distributed client publishers and helping them understand a complex marketplace, adapt to the needs and demands of consumers, and succeed and feel confident in their decisions as a business." Also "Graphic novels, manga, gaming, genre fiction and pop-culture products are what we center on everyday, not cookbooks or celebrity biographies." So that's them told.
