Pandemic Effect: All Marvel Comics That Have Been Delayed

The shortage of chips, the wood, the transport container … And now also the Marvel comics, which apparently will affect the output of up to 70 numbers, delaying them.

The coronavirus has made that the industry and the transport cannot with all the demand of the reactivation and not even the superheroes get rid of that.

Why are Marvel comics being delayed?

The entire publishing industry, both books and comics, is having problems. On the one hand, there is paper shortage and, on the other hand, the printers are not keeping up with the backward demand and the titles that have frozen their departure due to the pandemic.

However, it seems that this is not the specific reason for the delay at Marvel USA.

According to Games Radar, it has more to do with logistics and transportation, especially with Fry Communications, one of the leading printing and publishing companies he works with.

And is the delay serious? It depends.

Some closer staple numbers are just a week behind schedule, such as Amazing spider-man 78 and 80. But for others, we will have to wait 15 days, as in the case of Black panther legends, number 2, or even a month, as in the following number 3 of black panther or the 6 of Avengers: Tech-On.

What English comics are getting delayed?

The list is long and, for now, these are those affected for the final months of 2021 and the first of 2022.

What does this delay in Marvel comics mean if you buy the numbers in Spanish?

If you buy your Marvel comics in Spanish, you may have noticed that Panini, the publisher who has the rights, is also experiencing delays.

This is happening both in the issue of the periodic issues and in the reprints of out of print, so, if you are doubting whether to buy a comic that still exists stock, do not hesitate and do it now.

The problem in the Spanish case, as discussed in forums by users close to Panini, yes it seems that it is being the lack of paper. However, it is not ruled out that in the future there will be transport delays, since they are printed in China and brought to Spain.

It is assumed that, over the next few months, demand and supply will readjust. We’ll see if that’s the case, but until then, be patient.
