Image Comics New Schedules for May and June 2020

Image Comics is returning to comic book stores with Diamond Comic Distribution at the end of May and through into June, and we have a new release schedule for when you'll expect to see what comics and when. As the third-largest publisher in the direct market of comic book stores, it's also notable for a business model that only pays creators after the books have been published and the publisher paid by the distributor. Also Diamond is also delaying payments for already-published titles. Image Comics is not only exclusive with Diamond for comics but also with graphic novels intended for bookstores. The creators can't be furloughed by anyone, they can only furlough themselves – and there's no health insurance with that. Unlike with Marvel and DC, they can't invoice as pages are produced. The delay and the reduced publishing schedule will hit these creators harder than most. So here's what's coming down the track, and when.
