    The Delta variant is causing havok here in Sydney and Melbourne.
    And yeah, why people believe shit they read from effing nobodies on social media over medical professionals is beyond me.
    If social media was around at the turn of the last century, the Spanish flu would've killed millions more people and we'd still be suffering from polio.

    Maybe switch to a domestic paper supplier temporarily?

    Also, they should just release the comics digitally.

    The problem with digital early releases is that it would hurt local comic shops already struggling.

    Yeah, plus we don't want to divide the Digital/Physical market any more than we already have.

    But as a temporary solution until the global supply chain gets restored?

    I'm from the Jim Shooter school of thinking where you do all you can to avoid delays.

    But let's say you do six months of digital releases ahead of the print runs, and the majority of the LCS are shut down. You gotta look at the long term effects. Driving a major sector of your sales away for good to work around short term delays isn't going to be good for customers or the business.

    Yeah, a delay is a delay and if it's for reasons beyond anyone's control, then you just have to deal with it.
    Annoyed about your comics being delayed? Tough honestly.

    Honestly, if most of these books silently slipped like this most people would not know, at least if it was any other publisher.

    The effects wouldn't be anywhere that drastic, imo. In my experience, people that like the feel of a book in their hands, the feel of flipping thru pages, those folks aren't going anywhere. Many of them probably won't even read the digital comics. Me? I'm bisexual when it comes to reading comics. I love reading the traditional paper comics, but I also love it digitally, so naughty. I feel like DC is committing bi-erasure here.

    They could've anticipated disruptions to the global supply chain, imo, and formed a backup relationship with a domestic paper supplier.

    Maybe my standards are too high? I dunno. DC and Marvel are in charge of billion dollar IPs and want me to pay $5 a comic book, which makes a story arc $30. Maybe standards should be high.
