Mad Cave Studios has announced they’re delaying two upcoming titles that were to debut soon. Stargazer #1 will debut in August and Dry Foot #1 will debut in September.
Read Mad Cave’s Publisher Chris Fernandez‘s letter to retailers and fans below.
Dear comic book retailers and fans,
Mad Cave Studios recognizes how important each of you are to the industry. We have been keeping an eye on the current situation with COVID-19 and working closely with our partners to see how we can adjust in order to help the community in any way we can.
Taking everything into consideration, Mad Cave has decided to delay two upcoming titles until the crisis we are currently experiencing has subsided. This means that Stargazer #1 will be delayed until August and Dry Foot #1 will be delayed until September. We feel that this is the best decision we can make in order to not put any added pressure on comic book retailers for the time being.
Titles like Wolvenheart, Savage Bastards, Over the Ropes, Hellfighter Quin, and Battelcats: Tales of Valderia will move forward as scheduled seeing as those orders have been placed and paid for. Mad Cave will continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis and update everyone accordingly.
During this unprecedented time in our history, it is more important than ever that we all support each other as much as possible.
In the meantime, please be on the lookout for a major announcement from us NOT related to new comics. If you have any questions or wish to speak with us directly, please contact Manny Castellanos, Mad Cave’s Director of Sales and Retailer Relations Manager.
