Aftershock is still working on projects even as major publishers remain closed

The Hollywood Reporter reveals Aftershock Comics is still developing projects even as larger publishers are keeping shut during the Coronavirus situation:
Despite the current hold on new releases by the majority of the English-language comic book industry, AfterShock Comics has announced that it is celebrating its fifth anniversary by continuing full speed ahead on production, with new projects already in development.

The publisher of such titles as Animosity, Shipwreck and American Monster has not only continued work on existing projects during the hold on new releases caused by Diamond Comic Distributors temporarily shutting down; it’s meeting with new creators and planning all-new titles and releases, promising specific announcements within the next few weeks, THR has learned.

Additionally, the publisher has started serializing a number of its titles via its website, as well as previewing upcoming releases via its Instagram account. Proceeds of sales from its webstore are also being given toward retailer relief efforts, via the BINC Foundation.
Well, good for them. So unlike the majors, they're not letting the crisis get in the way of their business, and, they're even making good use of their site for producing stories to read online. It's something the majors could be doing now, if only to keep business going from an electronic perspective, but they've only proven as stagnant as their own superhero comics have become. Looks like an independent publisher's leading the way in setting an example, in this modern day and age.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
