    Default Its going to be boring without our weekly comics intake

    With diamond press not distributing our fabulous reading material, it looks like I will have to bunker down with my Nintendo Marvel Ultimate Alliance# 3: the Black Order new dlc the Fantastic Four Rise of Doom game.
    I was really looking forward to Empyre and am really enjoying the various X-titles and their current direction.
    Stay safe everybody ❤

    I enjoy anything Marvel cosmic, especially Thanos or Dark Phoenix related, loved the original Uncanny Avengers series.

    No it won't. At least not for me. Comics-wise, I've got so many back issues to read and enjoy.

    I've got quite a backlog myself. Most notably I bought those Humble Bundle Spawn collections and filled out the rest with ComiXology PDF back-ups. So, that's 306+ issues of Spawn sitting on my hard drive I've been meaning to start at some point. Now would be a good time I suppose, Spawn seems a good fit for the pre-apocalyptic atmosphere 2020 has going for it.

    Even so, I can't deny that the level of conversation here at CBR is going to suffer. This sub-forum was created specifically to talk about Marvel comics. If there aren't going to be any more Marvel ongoings then the forum loses its main reason to exist. Talking about back issues will only get us so far.

    It already is suffering. Ordinarily, the previews would be getting discussed. No previews. It'll be the same on Wednesday when the comics don't show up - assuming they don't just release them digitally, like DC are apparently doing.

    THIS!

    Plus lots of books / series I haven't read that I can try now. Don't tell anyone, but I might even branch out and read ... a few DC books! ;p

    The most active threads in this forum are the appreciation threads. I don't see the discussion in them suffering that much. Granted, there are people that don't like the appreciation threads, so they'll be out of luck.

    The second most active threads here are the bitching threads. I predict those will be even more active now, even if the subject of complaints will be different.

    Sadly true. Marvel forum has become pretty empty of any discussions worth reading really.

    Well, you could always start one. I'd be curious to see what you found worthy.

    Only been reading comics for 2 years and now the whole industry is going to die.

    I loved my comic shop and the employees. I loved the series I had on my pull list.

    I guess I shouldn't complain, my life could be much worse right now, but this is so depressing.

    Stay positive. The industry is not going to die. This is a difficult time but things will get better.

    Archie is this week then stopping, DC will be continuing with digital and using a new print distributor (Penguin Random House, says Bleeding Cool), and we're waiting on news from Marvel. Most smaller publishers have suspended releases.

    No news from Marvel is good news! Hope shall not die! I'm still looking forward to Empyre!

    Everyone stuck at home makes them more likely to buy some digital book. People will pay a lot to save themselves from boredom. I think (and hope) Marvel just goes digital for the next month. The closing on non-essential businesses can't go on for more than a month. It would ultimately destroy the world economy, which is not an option. Current unemployment in the US is up by 3 million in one week and growing. The shutdown of our economy is not going to last for long.
