According tomedia reports, the closure caused by the ongoing new corona virus pandemic has also had an impact on the comics industry, and this state does not seem to change any time soon. Marvel Comics is said to be likely to suspend the release of about a third of comic books, a situation that will continue into the middle of the summer. The news comes after a delay in late March.
Now, according to a new report by Polygon, Marvel Comics plans to suspend the publication of some of its comic books until June because of the new crown epidemic. That could account for a third of comic book distribution, the report said – although Marvel has not officially announced the plan or commented on the report.
It is not known which comic books will be affected by the change, but reports say changes in publishing could affect 15 to 20 percent of Marvel comic books. Marvel recently announced that it will offer a range of digital comic books for readers free of charge through its Marvel Unlimited service.
