Media Release — Space Goat Productions is excited to announce that they have entered into two separate distribution agreements with publishing companies in both France and Italy. This will be the first time that foreign-language content from SGP will be translated and distributed in localized languages.
In France, SGP has agreed to partner with Wetta. Wetta will be translating select titles from SGP’s library of Evil Dead 2 and The Howling books into French for local distribution. “I’m a huge fan of Evil Dead 2 which is one of the best horror movies ever made,” said owner Fred Wetta. “I have watched it something like a hundred times and still enjoy it. So when the fine folks at Space Goat started to produce comics to expand its universe, I had to take a look and what I found amazed me! Not only was the art cool, but the stories they’ve created were so clever and respectful to what the movies and the other medias brought to the Evil Dead mythology.”
In Italy, Weird Books, an imprint of Panini Books, will handle the translation and distribution to the Italian book market. Select titles from Evil Dead 2 and The Howling franchise will be made available. Weird Books will also be translating SGP’s original Backpack Editions books which include such titles as Big Game Hunters and Mage, Inc. This will mark the first time that original content from Space Goat is available in a language other than English.
Release dates for the books in both markets will be made available at a later date.

MORE ABOUT WEIRD BOOKS:
The publishing reality Weird Book comes from the meeting between professionals in the field who work to promote above all the quality of books, aiming at the novelty of gender to meet the curiosity of readers. We deal with comics, film essays, genre literature and screenplays, producing unique titles in Italy and also making use of collaborations with international authors. It is a way of making books that embodies the perspective of interconnected publishing, where the exchange of ideas becomes a mood, an attitude to build something different or, in other words, something “weird”, atypical.
Weird Book is the new reference point for readers looking for news.
All titles are distributed by PAN distributions.
