Those guys and gals over at Boom! Studios are a pretty smart bunch. If you follow all the news they put out (nearly all of it here on the Major Spoilers site), you’ll notice an interesting trend, and can connect the dots to what is happening next in the company and the industry as a whole. The Disney/Boom! Kids deal didn’t come as a shock, and with the latest news that Boom! has signed an agreement with Harper Collins Canada, shifting trends with the distribution market could be hidden in the company press release.
We are extremely excited about this alliance with HarperCollinsCanada,” BOOM! Studios CEO Ross Richie said, “The team at the company is an exciting, powerful group that will take BOOM! to the next level, building on our Direct Market and newsstand presence and allowing us to focus on the Canadian market in a smart, targeted way with some of the biggest and best brands in the world, such as our Pixar and Muppets comic books, as well as Farscape, Philip K. Dick’s science fiction classic Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and upcoming blockbusters like Die Hard.”
The best part is, there are going to be more Boom! Studios titles hitting Canada, which is good news to our friends to the north.
