Image Comics has announced a relationship with Discount Comic Book Service (DCBS). DCBS will now fulfill Image Direct, Image’s print comic book subscription serive which launched early last year. Along with fulfilling Image Direct they will also be expanding the program’s offerings to include merchandise.

In lieu of this new partnership, Image Direct is offering 30% off and free shipping to new subscribers.

“DCBS has long been one of our most supportive accounts and we’re so excited to be able to partner with them and expand the reach of Image Direct,” said Corey Murphy, Director of Sales at Image Comics. “Retailers are the backbone to this industry, but unfortunately many of our fans do not live in areas close by a local comic shop. We hope through DCBS and Image Direct we can fix that and widen the audience for creator-owned comics and merchandise.”

DCBS is the largest online comic book distribution retailer in the United States and is one of the largest accounts with Diamond Comics Distributors both domestically and abroad.

DCBS Co-owner, Christina Merkler added: “We are thrilled to partner with Image Comics in fulfilling their subscriptions and furthering readership in the industry. Image provides a line of diverse and innovative products that showcase the best of creative talent in comics and we look forward to furthering their overall exposure.”

If you are looking to get your favorite Image Comics merchandise, T-shirts, tote bags, sweatshirts, and more, you can do so through the Image Direct online storefront. You can also order your favorite Image Comics series that will be delivered directly to your door.
