Media Release — In addition to the just-announced additions of Jim “Ski” Sokolowski and Nick Pentz to the Dynamite crew, the publisher is proud to announce another new team member with deep, long-lasting ties throughout the industry. Dynamite has signed on Vince Letterio to further strengthen ties to direct market retailers and more.
Vince Letterio, former Director of Publishing Operations at DC Comics, joins Dynamite in his new role as Director of Direct Market Sales. With nearly 40 years as a prominent figure in the business, his experience is unmatched. With a start managing the historic New Jersey based retailer Steve’s Comic Relief for a decade, he went on to 28 years at DC, bolstering their connections to retailers and expanding their publishing initiatives.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the talented team and creators at Dynamite and excited to be once again working with the fine Direct Market retailers and Diamond Comic Distributors,” said Vince Letterio. “With my experience not only on the publisher side, but with retailers and creators, it will be exciting to reconnect with many old friends and make even more from this new position.”
“We’re very fortunate to be bringing someone of Vince’s caliber to Dynamite,” added Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. “He is one of the most respected people in the industry, and played a key role in the growth of DC’s business for nearly three decades. We’ve worked hand in hand with Vince on crossovers with DC, and saw the results of his initiatives. His reputation with retailers is second to none. I’m looking forward to his working with our team to increase Dynamite’s sales and market share in the industry”
