DC Comics Tries To Catch Up On Schedule On Some Titles, But Stops Some Work Related To Comic Book Schedule Of Solicitations Due To Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic!
BC tabloid reports:
DC Comics had told most creators that they were still full-steam-ahead. Editorial see an opportunity to use this time to get ahead, put pages in the bank, and get some titles that have been slipping of late, back onto schedule. Such as Legion Of Super-Heroes, Inferior Five, Doom Patrol, Ra’s Al Ghul Vs Batman, Bird Of Prey and more. However, I am now told that a few creators on DC’s Black Label mature readers line and 5G projects have been told to cease production. 5G was originally planned to launch in October as Generation Five, but its future has been in doubt.
However, Bleeding Cool has learned of an editorial and production shift to get DC’s Kids and Young Adult line moving out faster than originally planned. The bookstore market still distributing with Penguin Random House. DC Comics has found a replacement printer. This week’s Gotham High original graphic novel may be just what DC Comics need, both print and digitally. The usual comics may be very delayed now. However, the original graphic novel line that sells better in bookstores than comic stores is ramping up.
