Marvel announces May 27th return of single issues, new release schedule through early July

Marvel Comics has released information on their planned release schedule for single-issue comics following Diamond Comics’s resumption of weekly shipments. While Diamond’s planned return for new comics is Wednesday, May 20th, Marvel will hold their new releases until the following Wednesday, May 27th, with a small line-up of six single-issue titles including the debut of Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #1.

The schedule is notable in that Marvel will be slowly ramping up its single-issue releases, instead leaning more on collected editions and art books as they get back to a normal weekly schedule. The June 3rd, June 17th, and July 1st planned releases are all made up only of collections; June 10th and the aforementioned May 27th feature only single issues, while June 24th and July 8th will both see a mixture of singles and collections released.

In a statement, Marvel called this release plan “the most thoughtful way we can [release books] for fans, creators, and the industry during these unpredictable times.”
