Diamond Lays Off Three, Raises Questions Over Diamond Digital

Bleeding Cool has been informed that Dave Bowen (Director of Digital Distribution), Jeff Dillon (Web Development Manager), and Lev Schneider (Programmer) have all been laid off at Diamond Comic Distributors.

Representatives of Diamond Comic Distributors did not not return e-mails sent this morning on the subject
