MARVEL WALKS BACK ON DIGITAL ONLY

 

You may remember a few weeks ago I was rather miffed that several Marvel titles were effectively being cancelled as print comics and that the final few issues would be digital only. Well, I wasn't the only person annoyed by this, and now it appears that Marvel have reversed their decision.

 

This report comes from Bleeding Cool, not Marvel directly, but BC are generally pretty accurate about things like this, especially when they are able to give details of shipping dates - which they have:

 

Wednesday August 5th

ANT-MAN #4 (OF 5) FEB200986
AVENGERS OF THE WASTELANDS #4 (OF 5) FEB200989
MARVEL'S SPIDER-MAN: THE BLACK CAT STRIKES #4 (OF 5) FEB200948

 

Wednesday, August 12:
GHOST-SPIDER #9 FEB200931

Wednesday, August 19:

SILVER SURFER SPOTTED OVER CLEAVDON. THE WAY 2020 IS GOING, EXPECT GALACTUS BY AUGUST

 

We stole this one from Screenrant where you can read the full story. But essentially there was a cloud that looked exactly like The Silver Surfer.

This is clearly a far from exhausting list - and it's writer heavy because I tend to follow writers not artists. We'll be adding to it.

 

Go follow them, and find more women to follow, and listen. You don't have to agree, but it's high time that we listened to what women have to say.
