Digital Manga Publishing to Shut Down Their Print Wholesale Sub

13587-v2-197x[1]Change is in the air at Digital Manga Publishing. They've just announced plans to close their direct distribution channel Digital Manga Direct. The move comes only a couple months after an announcement (in November 2012) that the publisher was taking a hiatus on all of their print publication until June 2013.

On January 17th, 2013, Digital Manga, Inc. announced the closure of its wholesale division, Digital Manga Direct. Retailers who wish to make a final purchase through Digital Manga Direct are advised to do so by February 28th. Orders are first come, first serve, and subject to availability.

This looks to be just a streamlining measure, not an abandonment of paper manga. DMP's print titles swill still be available via the comics distributor Diamond Distribution and can be found at your local comics book store as well as on retail websites including Amazon and Akadot.

DMP's digital distribution will also continue unabated with titles found in most major ebookstores including Kindle, Nook, and Kobo.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
