Earlier this week, we reported that Diamond Comic Distributors are reopening soon and will begin distributing Star Wars comics around May 20th.
Today, we have found out from Marvel Comics that they will “resume Wednesday releases for new comics and collections starting May 27th.” The first Star Wars comic to release then will be Doctor Aphra #1. The Darth Vader Poster Book will follow the week after. Marvel’s goal is to “keep a balanced release schedule for its comics and trade collections as the industry continues to restart distribution and comic shops begin to reopen and adapt to current social distancing policies.”
Stay tuned here as this story progresses. We expect a response from Lucasfilm Publishing will follow within the coming weeks.
