Our Mission: To enable comic publishers and retailers to be successful in the business of comics.
Comic Distro provides a solution for comic book publishers looking to sell their publications directly to comic book retailers. Comic Distro bypasses the traditional direct-market comic book distribution system and allows for publishers and retailers to directly engage with each other.
"We aim to democratize the business of comic book distribution to be more accessible and practical for comic book publishers and retailers."
- Austin Osueke, Founder
Comic book publishers upload their files to Comic Distro. They set the pricing and printing details of their book(s). Retailers visit Comic Distro to discover and buy comic books for their stores. ArtistExpress, is an established comic book printing company that handles the orders, printing, and shipping of comic books to stores.

The traditional direct-market comic book distribution system often exposes comic book retailers to many financial risks and operational challenges; they also cripple the ability for a comic book publisher to operate as a sustainable business. Comic Distro is the platform where comic book publishers and retailers can directly work together and build their comic businesses.
