Marvel Comics retools schedule, new comic releases resume on May 27

Marvel Comics, the other half of the industry's Big Two, has followed DC Comics' lead and just announced a retooled rollout for new titles as states begin loosening restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic and Diamond Comic Distributors starts servicing publishers again later this month.

Today, the House of Ideas declared its plans to resume weekly releases for its stellar lineup of titles starting Wednesday, May 27, ending the long drought of new comics that began at the end of March. Fans will now be able to launch back into their favorite Marvel flagship characters with collections, miniseries, and standalone titles like Star Wars, Empyre, Amazing Spider-Man, X-Men, and Strange Academy.

The careful plan is to disperse a wide variety of books over the course of the next few weeks, balancing out its product line as the whole industry flicks back on the lights of commerce to kickstart distribution and stores slowly emerge out of hibernation with limited or revised operations. 

Leap into the newly released schedule for Marvel Comics below and talk to your local comic shops regarding their revamped policies toward safe social distancing and alternate services being offered, such as creating pull lists, curbside pick-ups, private shopping, and special deliveries. Excelsior!
