THE POINT.1888 ANNOUNCED AS LOCAL UK AGENT FOR ‘DOG MAN’

20 May - 2024

The Joester Loria Group, the exclusive global licensing agent for Dog Man and Cat Kid Comic Club, on behalf of Writers House and Dav Pilkey, has appointed The Point.1888 as its local licensing agent in the United Kingdon and Eire.

With his trademark humor and heart, #1 bestselling author and award-wining illustrator Dav Pilkey has made reading fun for kids with the Dog Man series, which was launched by Scholastic in August 2016, has more than 60 million copies in print and been translated into 47 languages. All five books in Dav Pilkey’s Cat Kid Comic Club series which launched in 2020 have topped bestseller lists. The latest book in the Dog Man series, Dog Man: The Scarlet Shedder published in March 2024, launched to the top spot-on bestseller lists around the world, and was the #1 bestselling book overall (children’s and adult books combined) in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and was the #1 bestselling children’s book in the U.K.

Working with JLG, The Point.1888 will deliver a leading consumer products programme that authentically reflect the values and huge appeal of this bestselling phenomenon.

Earlier this year DreamWorks Animation and Universal Pictures announced an animated Dog Man feature film, slated to open in theatres worldwide in January 2025 and ahead of this date The Point.1888 will be signing best in class partners to bring product to market that capture the trademark humour and heart of Dav Pilkey’s brands.

Katie Wilkinson, Commercial & Strategy Director at The Point says – “We are absolutely honoured and thrilled to be representing Dog Man and Cat Kid in the UK and working alongside JLG.  We are massive fans of these incredible graphic novels and are so excited to build a consumer products programme that extends the characters that children already love into new areas.  We can’t wait to start conversations next week at Licensing Expo”.

The Point.1888’s strength across multiple licensing categories and a number of brands has made them the great choice to grow the Dog Man and Cat Kid licensing program“, said Jackie DeMaio, Senior Licensing Director, The Joester Loria Group.  “We are looking forward to building the licensing program of this much-loved brand.
