We're Closed, Diamond's Shut Down-What are the Comic Companies up to?

Multiple publishers have come up with plans to deal with the ongoing coronavirus problem. Here is what we know so far: Marvel is offering retailers deep discounts until 4/8; Devil's Due Comics made its entire digital library free to download; AfterShock Comics has delayed shipments of its upcoming titles; Dynamite will only release six books in July and take any returns customers and retailers might have for the next month. All of their omnibus offerings will be available for retailers at huge discounts. Aspen has suspended all titles until June. Image will make a lot of upcoming product fully returnable. The company has cancelled all upcoming second printings and reprints. They will also tweak their release dates so stores will not be flooded with new comics. There has been no word on what DC will do as of this writing. There was a rumor that Free Comic Book Day was going to become Free Comic Book Month in May but now FCBD will be pushed to later in the summer. And on the convention front for now both WonderCon and Comic-Con International: San Diego will happen as scheduled. WonderCon is in April and SDCC won't take place until July.

Last Time....
