DSTLRY has announced that it’s entered a multi-year foreign rights deal with Groupe Delcourt, the leading independent comic book publisher in France. This deal provides Groupe Delcourt a “first look” deal to translate DSTLRY’s forthcoming library of trade paperbacks into the French marketplace.
“Groupe Delcourt has remained an essential foundation of the French-speaking comic book community. We’re overjoyed to partner with them so more readers can enjoy the upcoming slate of our graphic novels by some of the most acclaimed writers and artists in the United States, Europe, and beyond,” say DSTLRY Co-Founders Chip Mosher and David Steinberger in a joint statement.
Announced last month in The New York Times, DSTLRY was cofounded by comiXology veterans David Steinberger and Chip Mosher as a next-generation comics publisher and physical-digital collectibles company. DSTLRY launched with Founding Creators including Mirka Andolfo, Brian Azzarello, Marc Bernardin, Elsa Charretier, Becky Cloonan, Lee Garbett, Jock, Joëlle Jones, Tula Lotay, Jamie McKelvie, Junko Mizuno, Stephanie Phillips, Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, and Ram V. Groupe Delcourt will have the option to translate upcoming works of DSTLRY.
