Italy Tunes In To Sitcomics
Sbam! to publish Italian translations of Sitcomics library
The four-year agreement gives Sbam! exclusive rights to publish hardcover, Italian translations of all Sitcomics Binge Book™ titles including The Blue Baron, Super ‘Suckers and upcoming super-hero team book The Heroes Union from Roger Stern, Ron Frenz and Sal Buscema.
“Italy is passionate about comics and we’re thrilled that Sbam! is so excited to bring our humor titles to fun-loving Italian readers,” says Sitcomics publisher and veteran TV sitcom writer Darin Henry (Seinfeld, KC Undercover). “Our American fans have already fallen in love with our colorful, 21st Century characters drawn in classic art styles and, with Sbam! leading the charge, we’re shamelessly confident that this formula will quickly win over Italian readers too.”
Sitcomics’ unique Binge Book™ format, which delivers a self-contained, 64-page storyline for only $3.99, is similar to the “album” format that has been the European standard for decades.
“As soon as we saw Sitcomics, we immediately decided to propose them for Italy!” declares Sbam! founder Antonio Marangi. “We have always been very careful to offer our readers the best of Italian comics books. Now it will be a pleasure – and an honor – to also publish these American works which will be greatly appreciated by the most loyal and new readers, who will both be able to discover a whole new world in comics!”
Sbam! will begin releasing Sitcomics in print this January. English language Binge Books are available now at select comic shops across the USA and Canada via Sitcomics’ Sell-Thru Distribution System. Sitcomics’ current and upcoming creative roster includes David Michelinie, Tom DeFalco, Corin Howell, Jeff Shultz, Craig Rousseau, Renee Reeser Zelnick, Tom Richmond, Al Milgrom, Randy Bishop, Blair Shedd, Neil Vokes, Mike Vosburg and Todd Dezago.
