Diamond Named Exclusive North American TINTIN Distributor
"The Adventures of Tintin" Merchandise Now Easier To Find...
Moulinsart S.A. – the company established to protect and promote the work of Hergé, the creator of the internationally beloved boy reporter Tintin – has selected Diamond Comic Distributors as its exclusive distributor of The Adventures of Tintin merchandise to specialty stores in North America and the Philippines.
The announcement is a key step in Moulinsart’s first ongoing and comprehensive program of Tintin collectibles, comics, and limited availability products in North America, and includes Tintin products from Little Brown, Last Gasp, Moulinsart, and other companies. A primary goal of the program is to grow the sales and brand awareness for the storied Tintin property in North America.
“Although many U.S. fans became aware of Tintin with the Steven Spielberg/Peter Jackson film released in 2011, the international Adventures of Tintin have been known worldwide for many years,” said John Parker, VP of Business Development at Diamond Comic Distributors. “We at Diamond are ecstatic to be involved in the expanded introduction of Tintin’s stories and awesome collectible and novelty products to the thousands of stores in our network.”
Diamond began offering Tintin collectibles and merchandise in its monthly PREVIEWS catalog starting in June of this year, with many of the first wave of Tintin products releasing to comic book shops this past month. Tintin products will continue to remain a focus in upcoming PREVIEWS catalogs with its own dedicated pages of products.
