Aspen Comics Suspends Spring & Summer Line-Up
by James Ferguson
With COVID-19 disrupting life around the world and taking a major toll on brick & mortar retailers, publisher Aspen Comics has decided to suspend its spring and summer line-up of new releases. This includes April’s Fathom and May’s Soulfire: Exiled series. Aspen hopes this will help retailers as they face difficult ordering decisions across the industry’s vast array of titles.
As an independent publisher it is never an easy decision to suspend our production line because it means our creative talent and production staff are directly impacted by the loss of work and revenue. However, like all private and public entities dealing with this unique and unrivaled pandemic crisis, we feel it’s in the best interest of our company to do our part now in assisting to stem the tide in favor of public safety and help our retail partners before it’s too late.
Fathom and Soulfire: Exiled will be officially postponed until further notice. Archival and existing material will still be offered.
