Like Frolickers on a Florida Beach, Marvel Ramps Back Up in July

Marvel Comics is quickly ramping their shipping schedule back up as comic shops reopen, and the publisher optimistically hopes for business to be back in full swing by July. Marvel previously released a shipping schedule through July 8, which mostly consisted of bi-weekly new issues and a lot of trades. Still, now they've followed up with a schedule for the rest of July that is approaching pre-pandemic levels of market saturation.

As the country faces record unemployment, Marvel Comics brings back its weekly supply of overpriced chapbooks.

Has Ike Perlmutter convinced Donald Trump to declare super-mega-crossover events an essential service? It's possible since Empyre is launching on July 15, with all of its highly contagious tie-ins and spinoffs spreading quickly throughout the rest of the month, rocking the Marvel Universe to its foundations we're sure as these things tend to do. We also see the launch of new series like X-Factor, with ten X-books in total shipping in the final three weeks of July.

"We couldn't be more excited to start rolling out new Marvel comics again on a weekly basis, including our long-anticipated cosmic summer event, Empyre!" said Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski, returning from weeks of seclusion like North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. "We know Marvel fans are eager to dive back into the Marvel Universe, and we can't wait to bring you spectacular new stories with stunning art every Wednesday. As anticipation and excitement builds, we'll continue to keep a balanced release schedule for our comics and trade collections, and starting in mid-July, fans can look forward to even more releases for Marvel's latest comics!"

At press time, sources tell Bleeding Cool that congress was hard at work on yet another stimulus package designed to send checks to comic book fans so that they can afford to follow Marvel's insane weekly comic schedule again. Below, see the full list of comics and collections shipping for the final three weeks of July. The full schedule of Marvel Comics shipping from now until the end of July can be seen here.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
