Valiant Entertainment has announced a new partnership with Pedastudio, which will license and distribute its titles across Africa.

“Valiant’s readership worldwide continues to expand in droves, and we continue to further the excitement by bringing our greatest series to a bigger array of international territories than ever before,” said Russell A. Brown, Valiant’s President of Consumer Products, Promotions & Ad Sales in a press release from Valiant. “Together with Pedastudio, Valiant has now extended its international presence into 37 countries – a figure that now includes, for the first time, African countries with massive and rapidly expanding comic book audiences.”

This is another example of publishers seeking other distribution outlets for their titles. Instead of staying with a single distributor with shrinking outlets, publishers know this is the way to grow the industry.

Pedastudio is the latest in a long line of publishers to join Valiant’s already extensive network of international partnerships around the globe, which also currently includes Bliss Comics in France, Büyülü Dükkan in Turkey, CFx in Pakistan, China Mobile in China, Cornea Entertainment in India, Jambo in Brazil, Kamite in Mexico, Lezhin in Korea, Medusa Comics in Spain, NHN Comico in Korea and Japan, OVNI Press Editorial throughout Latin America, ShoPro in Japan, Social Comics in Brazil, Sokol Express in Russia, Schwerkraft-Verlag in Germany, Star Comics in Italy, Viverra in Russia, World Publishing in China, and Wydawnictwo Fantasmagorie in Poland.
