Episode 48: Marvel Dumped Diamond Distributing

Dave Haynes and Terry West discuss Marvel Comics’ move away from Diamond Distributing!

In a move very much like DC, Marvel has completely abandoned Diamond Distributing in favor of Penguin Publishing. What does this move mean for Marvel, and for the comics industry as a whole? Plus we spotlight Marvel’s new ‘Alien’ comic, and review the best Alien and Predator comics of all time. 

The Club House has a brand new look! Dave has completed remodeling to add new areas for gaming, comics, and more, and the shop looks incredible!

Find out what’s new for the shop and what’s coming very soon!
