ComicList: New Comic Book Releases List for Wednesday, April 1, 2020, a list of the comic books, graphic novels, and other products that should be available at your local or online comic book shop this week. (See below for details regarding shipments to comic book retailers starting April 1, 2020.)
As you probably know by now, starting April 1, 2020, Diamond Distribution will temporarily discontinue shipping products to comics book retailers. This clearly has an affect upon ComicList, as we exist to let you all know what comics, books, and other items are available each week in comic book shops.
We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you all apprised. Right now, multiple publishers have stated that some graphic novels and trade paperbacks will be available, in any comics book stores that are still open for business, through book distributors. DC Comics has also announced they are looking into ways of getting single issue comic books into stores without using Diamond Distribution.
ComicList will work with our partners at TFAW, and we will notify you if any new comics or books from comic book publishers are made available for sale in comics book stores.
What can you do in the meantime? Let your local retailer know you are here for them. Contact them and see if they are still open, continue to pre-order titles, and use this an opportunity to purchase collections or back issues from them. Use our Extended Forecasts to order and pre-order titles, since, as of now, publishers still intend to release the comics that are not currently able to get to stores.
There will be a Wednesday, someday soon, when comics and comic book shops will be back. And just as we have, since 1995, ComicList will continue to serve you, during this crisis, and afterwards.
