DC Comics, Marvel Movie Figurines, Hero Collector July 2020 Solicits

In a normal world, we would have started getting July solicitations round about now. Dark Horse usually arrives early, DC Comics would be this Friday, and everyone else would drift in over the following few days. That is not happening this month, as printing and distribution are suspended, and any solicited work for April, May and June will be shifted forward and take up much of July. That is if the shutdown is lifted in July. So no July 2020 solicitation s- or so we thought. Because Hero Collector, the publisher that licenses Marvel, DC, Sonic and Rick & Morty product for the UK mass market, with comic stores on the side, is still going strong. And has a bunch of DC Comics graphic novels and Marvel Movie figurines take orders for, for July shipping, whether through Diamond or elsewhere.

So here's a look at the Hero Collector Diamond Solicits list intended for the May 2020 Previews for July 2020 release, all while the April Previews are still held in UK warehouses, Diamond hasn't printed the May Previews and we have no idea what will actually happen now.
