Penguin Random House is proud to be the exclusive worldwide distributor for Marvel’s newly published and backlist comic books, trade collections, and graphic novels to comic shops, starting October 1, 2021. We’re thrilled to be your partners in continuing to grow the Direct Market and best serve your business.

We’ve created a comprehensive information kit for comic shop retailers that includes a detailed FAQ covering a variety of topics, which you can find here. We’ve also created a help section for the Direct Market on our self-service site and you can find the FAQ and ordering information there as well.

Comic shop retailers can order Marvel titles on the .Biz portal now, for early solicited titles going on sale after October 1st.  For backlist titles or reorders, Penguin Random House will begin shipping October 1st so please plan accordingly. If you have any ordering issues, please contact your customer service representative.
