    Not only that creators can continue to work and hype their stuff which would be awesome because imagine in 6 months time picking full arcs already done in TPB format.
    The glorious binge reading I could do.... But I really like my monthlies bc I have something to look forward to each week
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Newsarama was trying to say 1/3rd of the ISSUES, because some of the 15 - 20% of the TITLES double ship both months.

    I'm glad you are rolling in the dough. With 10 million unemployed in the US due to the crisis, and now some Marvel creators joining them, you are very fortunate.
    Yup it's great be even better if I had something to spend it on.

    Somewhere around 10 to 15. There's roughly 50 different ongoing books. Some double shippers will no longer double ship, which explains the discrepancy.

    It's going to be nothing but Deadpool.

    This could be the frightening truth. Only high profile character or as Reviresco theorized, any character that has been a factor in the MCU will have a series

    Once things get going again, I expect the line will look pretty much like it has.

    Suspending work on a few books at this point makes sense as you don't want to have a complete glut of books waiting to dump on the market.

    I'd like to hope that they're planning on a return to publishing my mid-May, early June at the latest. But we'll see.

    Marvel is going to be returning to a radically different environment. Do you think Diamond will be around? Do you think that we will still have the same number of shops before this all occurred? Maybe Marvel is betting on other comic companies going under while they are gone?

    It's more than a few books.

    Yeah, no choice but to wait.

    I don't think they're betting on other companies going under.

    That might happen, of course, but I don't think it's anything that Marvel is counting on or betting on.

    As for how many shops will be around, who knows?

    Hopefully most will make it but obviously it's going to depend on the duration of the current situation.

    And as for Diamond...I don't know. If they go, publishers will have to figure out another distribution system but it's not an impossible problem to solve.

    Some of them, obviously, will be pushed off to the fall - like anything to do with the Black Widow movie, for instance. No sense in getting, say, the Taskmaster mini fully completed at the moment if they're not going to release it until the movie comes out in November.

    I think unless there is a huge stimulus package that helps the smaller businesses, this will be pretty grim in a short time for all kinds of local commerce...your barbershops, hair salons, etc. The local garden stores so far they are letting stay open since they also serve local growers in our area and some sell feed and other supplies to the horse owners. A lot of the local LCS's were also depending on the gaming community to keep going and they would would tournaments and things. Now if they are lucky, they can do curbside but only with the stock on hand since nothing new is coming in. My shop has been on FB posting videos slashing prices on the TPBs and Omnibus sales.

    I saw that and most of that stuff is stuff most of us already have or stuff that would pack a bin at times.

    That's probably a Previews mag. That's something there's no reason not to release digitally.

    With subs that get cancelled you can just send an email to them and ask that the remaining issues get transferred to another book. Due to a few cancellations coming at once, the sub to Thor I get for my niece is currently at like 20 upcoming issues, heh.

    Anyway, knew this was coming, but it is sad. But it is encouraging that it is not line wide, which may point to them prepping to release digitally for the remaining books, in order to keep those creatives working, and just holding off on new stuff until shops are back in business.
