Boom! Studios announced yesterday that it has signed a distribution agreement with Haven Distributors.  The deal has Haven distributing all second printings of the monthly comics to the direct market.

“Retailers have been begging us to get our second prints into their stores at a faster pace for the past year,” said BOOM! Studios CEO Ross Richie. “We’re happy to be able to offer retailers another choice in getting an important part of our product line to their stores and into the hands of their customers.”

It’s interesting this announcement has been made, especially in light of the troubles going on at Diamond with continued cutbacks and staff layoffs.  Before you jump to conclusions about the major distributor collapsing, keep in mind Boom! does have distribution deals with Simon and Schuster, and Harper Collins Canada, and Kable Distribution Services.  Boom! has done a great deal to market itself, and ensuring comics get into the hands of potential readers faster is a good sign.
