Diamond Comics Distributors has announced the launch of a new website and comic shop locator aimed at directing kids and parents to kid-friendly comic shops (the ones that carry Scratch9!!!) across the United States and Canada.

The new site at kidscomics.com features a variety of news, info, and fun activities on comics and graphic novels geared directly to kids ages 4 to 11 — and older fans who are kids at heart!

Kidscomics.com builds upon Diamond’s successful comicshoplocator.com website and phone service, which since 1996 has directed over three million-plus customers searching for comics and other merchandise to direct market comic book shops.

The new kid-friendly site will be a web portal to get the most up-to-date news and information on kid’s comics (can I say it again? Like Scratch9) and graphic novels, with current plans calling for the comic shop locator, a new release schedule highlighting the latest kid-friendly comic books, a backlist of kid-friendly graphic novels, sneak peeks at upcoming titles, character and creator interviews, and more.

The shop locator for kidscomics.com will initially launch with over 800 qualified kid-friendly retailers taken from current shops who participate in Diamond’s comicshoplocator.com service. Each retailer must show a minimum ordering support for kid-friendly comic books and graphic novels.
