In addition to announcing several changes to its primary Previews catalog, Diamond Comic Distributors has revealed plans to distribute a separate Previews Magazine solely dedicated to DC Comics.
The top-selling publisher will no longer be featured in the main Previews catalog — instead, its comics and merchandise will be showcased in a separate magazine, which will come free with the purchase of the central Previews Magazine, in the same way that Marvel’s Previews catalog, and the Image+ magazine, are sold with the purchase of the main Previews Magazine.
“For Previews readers, that means you’ll receive a copy of Previews, DC Previews, Marvel Previews, and the Image+ magazine – all for the price of $3.99,” Diamond’s Previews editor Marty Grosser said in a statement.
As of as May 2018, Diamond will distribute its Previews catalog digitally as part of a “special Previewsworld app.” There will be an option to separately buy the digital Previews catalog, or redeem a digital version with the purchase of a print copy.
Additionally, as of the April 2018 issue of Previews Magazine, prose novels, magazine, and the comics/GN section will be merged into one “Comics, Graphic Novels & Print” category, while manga will get its own section.
