Marvel has Stopped Creators Work on a Third of Their Upcoming Comics

With Diamond Comics temporarily no longer accepting new releases from publishers for distribution due to the Covid-19 outbreak, comic companies have had to take a look at their own production lines. There's no point in writers and artists working on titles thay may actually ship until months after their due dates. Marvel Entertainment announced yesterday they are immediately "pausing" work on,  and the release of,  one-third of its currently scheduled May and June comic book issues. This slow down is expected to affect 15 to 20% of its solicited upcoming titles. This decision is to help spread out the amount of publishing product over the coming weeks and months. Marvel began telling creators involved with the suspended titles of this decision on Friday April 3rd and Marvel will pay all  talent for their work to date. When will they resume publishing the issues not affected by the pause? A Marvel spokesperson said: "as soon as more information is available, we will outline our longer-term plans."
