Diamond Appoints Chris Powell Of MyComicShop.com As Executive Director Of Business Development

Diamond Appoints Chris Powell Of MyComicShop.com As Executive Director Of Business DevelopmentIt wasn't long ago I heard that Chris Powell, manager of Lone Star Comicsand MyComicShop.com was to take a specific senior position in the comic book industry. I didn't run the story because talking to the company in question, it just wasn't true. Loks like the source may have got the story right, but the company wrong.

Now I understand that Powell will move to Maryland to become Diamond Comic Distributors' Executive Director of Business Development for the comic book speciality market, with a mission to increase the number of comic stores in the market, and help existing stores expand. This was an aim of the company as expressed at San Diego Comic Con, and it appears Powell will be givn the task of making it flesh.

Powell was a founder of ComicsPro and served as President of the CBLDF. He will begin his new role in March.
