Marvel Comics Encouraging Staff to Work From Home, as Coronavirus Pandemic Fear Spreads

Bleeding Cool has learned from sources that Marvel Comics of New York City, while not closing their offices, has made the decision to encourage everyone at work from home and are stating that no one has to come in.
