Social Funding A New Distributor For Comics

Social Funding A New Distributor For ComicsHaven is closing its doors. Is there room for another comic book distributor to pick up the pieces that the monopoly behemoth iof Diamond Comic Distributors considers beneath it?

Apparently so. But only if you help.

Liber Distribution is looking to comic book readers, retailers and publishers to help fund its set up costs, to distribute independent comic books across the country, including comics you just can't get anywhere else, such as IGN Comics' Joey Esposito and Jonathan Moore's Footprints from 215 Ink.
And they have a pledge they'll make to publishers,"We'll carry your titles as long as you're willing to print them. "
