Diamond to Distribute CME Publications Worldwide


Graphic novel publisher Creative Mind Energy (CME) has signed a supply agreement with Diamond Comic Distributors to distribute their line of products worldwide to comic book specialty stores, book stores, mass-market merchandisers, libraries and other outlets excluding markets in Asia.

CME is an up and coming comic book and graphic novel publisher providing a wide range of genres for readers of all ages to enjoy. The publisher’s first original graphic novel The Gifted is showcased in the October issue of Diamond’s PREVIEWS catalog.

The first volume in an ongoing series, The Gifted, shows what life is like for animals struggling to survive in a world laid to waste by humanity’s violence, abuse and exploitation. Through the eyes of the lone wolf the reader gains a unique perspective experiencing first hand his desperation, hunger and fight for survival. Hand painted watercolors and minimal text is all that is needed to depict a strong and moving story in this graphic novel.

CME President Damian Wassel Sr. remarked “Diamond understands the comic book market better than anyone else and they are an established name in the book trade. We couldn’t be in better hands.”

“We are pleased to start a relationship with Creative Mind Energy and are thrilled they are working with us to expand their business using Diamond’s many resources,” said Diamond’s Vice President of Purchasing, John Wurzer. “The unique books will be able to provide readers with great stories, filled with striking artwork that they can discover for the first time at their local comic book specialty shop or book store.”
