Devil's Due Publishing was a huge licensing publisher ten years ago, bringing back G.I. Joe - which is still going thanks to IDW Publishing. The company was also responsible for launching the first HACK/SLASH series, a great horror title that's supposed to have been made into a movie since the beginning. Now, after a two year long hiatus, Devil's Due Publishing is back – and they're not alone. Diamond will be distributing Devil's Due comics, a surprise considering the two parted ways on less than amicable terms when, according to Devil's Due, Diamond took their revenues to pay back returns and fees Diamond claimed were owed to them – correlating many recent reports that Josh Blaylock, the owner of Devil's Due, still owed multiple freelancers money. Still, despite their mixed past, Devil's Due seems to be giving Diamond another chance. Or maybe it would be better said that Diamond are giving Devil's Due another chance. It may also be because after they left their distribution, Devil's due went with Haven and self-distribution, only to run into more money troubles. To pay back their mistakes, Devil's Due is not only coming back into the publishing biz, but they are also creating an imprint, "Project Rectify," specifically to pay back the creators to whom they owe a lot of money. Word from Devil's Due at The Beat is: "This has been a long time coming, but in the end I am glad to be moving forward. Thank you to Diamond for working with us to look to the future. Expect more information about the publishing line-up and what else to expect from Devil's Due very, very soon." The official Devil's Due site is up.
