03/23 - Diamond Halts All New Shipments

Steve Geppi, Chairman & CEO of Diamond Distributors posted an official message on Diamond site in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The major step that will affect every comic shop is:

Product distributed by Diamond and slated for an on-sale date of April 1st or later will not be shipped to retailers until further notice.

At this time, re-orders may still be fulfilled, but no new products will be available. Many stores are already closed due to government mandated closures.

This first week affects DAREDEVIL on April 1st, as issue #20 was scheduled to ship. There is no official word from Marvel if their comics will be rescheduled or if the issues will be available digitally (which brings its own problems for comic shops if fans get a digital copy instead of a physical copy).

What will the comic industry look like once the COVID-19 outbreak is under control?

Shipping dates on the main part of the site will be adjusted to reflect "to be determined". The full statement from Geppi is below:
