It may not seem like it to some degree, but every year of comics publishing for some time has been a wild ride, whether in the comics themselves, the behind-the-scenes jostling of the business, or the actual publication/distribution itself. We saw a lot of changes hit the industry in 2020 but it doubled down in 2021 in doing a lot of different things because of the pandemic. Now that we’re in 2022, there are still lots of new series that continue to launch, ongoing books roll on, and there are a lot of really strong choices to pull from when picking out what to buy.
Publishers are continuing to figure out their strategies overall, lots of books are flowing through the retail side, and there are a lot of changes going on to talk about. Check out all the news here.
