Humanoids Announce a Pause in Releases as Mark Waid Pens a Letter

Comic publishers are adjusting their plans and release schedules due to COVID-19. Humanoids Publisher Mark Waid has released a message where they have announced a pause in releases. But, it’s not all bad news as the publisher isn’t going “pencils down” and instead are working on numerous projects to come.

Read the full message below:

Stories are important. In times like these—especially in times like these—narrative is an invaluable aid to let our minds relax and our spirits soar. At Humanoids, we’re putting the health and safety of our employees and partners first, but we’re lucky enough to be working with passionate comics artists and writers the world over who are devoted to the value of entertainment. I don’t think they’d put down their pencils even if we asked them. 

Though COVID-19 has temporarily impacted our schedule, we aren’t wasting any time to ensure that our future is filled with new stories that we can share with you as soon as possible. We are actively working with creators, guaranteeing that previously announced projects arrive while signing new projects. But to ensure the safety and prosperity of our creative community, retailer peers, and staff, Humanoids will be taking a short break in releasing new material. 

We’ll be back later this summer with books to amaze and astound. See you then. Please see the updated schedule below for more details.
