With the lockdown in place, comic shops have been struggling to get their comics out. In reaction to this, comic publishers haven’t been releasing their comics. Bar a few who are bringing out digital releases, and others releasing trades and collections.
Now DC Comics are announcing that their comics will be back on sale!
After a four-week break, fans can celebrate that new superhero stories will be arriving at operating retail stores. After surveying more than 2,000 stores across the U.S. and Canada, it became clear that many comic book store owners are finding new and creative ways to get books to the fans who want them.
At the site right now, we have details on the books coming out in the coming weeks, a link to find which shops are open, and more info on this process. Head to DCcomics.com now to learn more!
Their new slates of releases also includes digital releases with their partners – I assume this will include Amazon/ComiXology.
Will the other publishers follow?
