Pandemic and Printing Issues Cause Delays for Marvel

Printing Issues Force Publisher To Pump The Breaks...

The comics industry is continuing to feel the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Months ago, DC Comics delayed several titles because of supply chain issues and now the pandemic has set it’s sights on the House of Ideas.

Marvel Comics has pushed the release dates for several upcoming comics. Titles slated to hit shelves in November, December and even January and February have been delayed up to eight weeks.

Sources familiar with the matter have confirmed that Marvel is adjusting their production schedule in order to address logistic issues with the companies it contracts to print their comics. This includes, but is not limited to, Fry Communications.

In order to maintain parity release schedules and reassure the direct market, which has seen a surge in damaged books coming from Marvel’s now principal supplier; Penguin-Random House, in recent weeks. Marvel has adjusted the digital release for the impacted issues.
