Digital on sale dates to remain the same

April 3, 2020 — New York, NY — Kodansha USA Publishing, which includes both the Kodansha Comics and VERTICAL publishing imprints, has made the decision to shift  on sale dates for many of its spring and summer 2020 print titles to later in the year, following careful consideration of the global health crisis and related book retail and distribution disruptions. 
 
This decision was not made lightly and Kodansha USA Publishing continues to strive to support its physical retail partners as best it can during this challenging time for the industry. All backlist orders continue to be promptly filled by Kodansha USA Publishing’s distribution partner Penguin Random House. Furthermore, several frontlist releases, including debuts of highly anticipated new manga series, like Wave, Listen to Me!, and returning favorites like Tales of Berseria (Manga) volume 3, Drifting Dragons volume 4, and more, will retain their original on sale dates. 
 
In order to meet unabated demand for fans reading at home, all previously scheduled Kodansha Comics and VERTICAL titles will continue to be released digitally by their original on sale dates. Kodansha Comics and VERTICAL ebooks will be released as originally planned via digital retail partners BookWalkercomiXologyGoogle PlayKindleMyAnimeListApple BooksRakuten Kobonook and izneo.
 
Publishing schedule updates for both print and digital releases are viewable through the end of May 2020 at kodanshacomics.com/new-releases.
