Marvel Comics Makes Covid-19 Pandemic Misstep By Short-Changing Readers By Switching To Digital Only For Some Titles Starting In May 2020! Is Spider-Man Ally Ghost-Spider Canceled?

Looks like Marvel will be ending mini-series, that began in print, with digital only issues. Plus, it seems some ongoing series are having digital only issues; does this signal their eventual once their storylines end or a switch to digital for the series? The only promised physical copies will be included in the eventual collected edition. This seems more like a business decision around poor selling series than a genuine social distancing aid by the publisher.

Marvel’s announcement.
