Diamond is pleased to announce that it will represent Eureka Productions and its Graphic ClassicsÂ® line of graphic novels exclusively into comic book specialty, library and bookstore channels worldwide.
Eureka Productions' Graphic Classics line is a series of graphic novels presenting great fiction in comics and illustration for readers twelve and up. Each volume features the works of the world's greatest authors, illustrated by some of the best artists working today in the fields of comics, illustration and fine arts.
