Dork Storm Press LLC announced that, effective immediately, it will no longer be marketing or distributing PvP comic books. PvP will move to the Image Comics line of products in an amicable parting of the ways.
"I couldn't be happier for Scott," said Dork Storm Press Publisher
John Kovalic. "Scott's a hugely talented cartoonist, and Image will
be a great home for him."
"Dork Storm Press was there for me when I wanted to take my first
steps in the comic book industry," said Kurtz. "I wouldn't have been
able to survive self publishing if not for their advice and support."
With the move, Dork Storm Press will no longer handle back-issues of
PvP comic books or trade paperbacks. All questions regarding future
PvP availability and scheduling will be addressed by Image Comics.
Questions regarding back-issues of PvP will be handled by Kurtz'
Items DSP 6007 and DSP 6008 (PvP #7 and #8) have been cancelled by
Kurtz. PvP will relaunch with #1 through Image in March, 2003.
Diamond Comic Distributors is the exclusive distributor for Image
Dork Storm Press will not be looking for a new title to fill PvP's
spot on its roster. "With the already-scheduled addition of Aaron
William's PS 238 comic in 2003, we'll have a dynamic lineup for
2003," said Kovalic.
This will include the three-time Origins Award-winning Dork Tower,
Nodwick, Snapdragons, and PS 238, as well as other products.
