Dear Retailers:
We are very excited to report that Penguin Random House’s first week of shipping comics for the 10/6 release is well on track. Furthermore, we are working closely with PRH to minimize the impact of the logistical and printer capacity issues facing the industry. To ensure you continue to receive reliable shipments, Marvel plans to increase the lead time between FOC dates and On Sale dates for most Marvel comics from 23 days to 30 days, adding an extra week to production to help mitigate any printing delays that may occur. These new earlier FOC dates will begin to apply for November titles going on sale 11/3, 11/10, and 11/17. Marvel will continue evaluating these production dates and share regular updates as needed.
