Marvel Comics are finally back in stores. The coronavirus pandemic massively interrupted the comic book business, which has left the majority of new books delayed over the past several weeks. Now, in something of a milestone, the first wave of new titles has landed on shelves at comic book stores from the industry’s biggest publisher.
This week’s new physical Marvel Comics titles include Amazing Spider-Man #43, Avengers #33, Marauders #10, Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #1 and Venom #25. Marvel, like other publishers, has switched some of its titles to digital-only. However, the company is still committed to keeping books in stores.
Check out the cover art and synopsis for this week’s new books.
