San Francisco-based indie comic publishers Silver Sprocket have signed a distribution deal for the direct market with Diamond Comic Distributors. To celebrate the occasion in their usual hilarious fashion, Silver Sprocket commissioned a special "Distro Deal with the Devil" illustration from artist Michael Sweater:
Silver Sprocket has been publishing comics since 2012, but they've been receiving substantially more attention this year for publishing Ben Passmore's Eisner Award nominated, Ignatz Award winning comic, Your Black Friend.
Silver Sprocket currently has four titles available to order from Diamond, with many more on the way. The current titles are: Catboy, a print edition of the widely popular VICE webcomic by Benji Nate, Be Your Own Backing Band by Liz Prince (Alone Forever, Tomboy), Please Destroy the Internet by Michael Sweater, and Siren School by Isabella Rotman.
Hi, I'm Olive. My cat Henry is my best friend. I saw a shooting star and wished he could hang out with me like a person. I think I should have been more careful with my wording.
A collection of Benji Nate's #1 webcomic Catboy from VICE.COM plus heaps of additional unreleased comics, Catboy fashion, and bonus artwork.
