Devil's Due Entertainment is doing a complete rebrand with a new name and new focus under the similar, but different Devil's Due Comics. The company is shifting towards a creator-owned output, according to founder Joshua Blaylock.

"Currently the comic industry has a high class problem of too much quality. Every week we're overloaded with fantastic submissions, more than we could ever publish, let alone give the full attention we offer to all of our current titles. It's a glut of goodness, and all one needs to do is view the Previewscatalog to see it," said Blaylock.

"While we're structured to handle national distribution and even the highest volume of sales, there's a whole world of new indie artists with small-but-growing voracious followings. These are creators hustling every weekend at comicons, on Kickstarter, and social media, who already have a lot of the aspects of comic production figured out," he continued. "They do fairly well by nurturing a cult fanbase, but just need an infrastructure to rely on, an opportunity to get onto store shelves, and a brand behind them. That's easy for us and hard for them."

The first two titles under this new name are Scott Schmidt and Brian Atkins' Final Street in June, followed by Pat Shand and Olivia Pelaez's Little Girl in July.
