The coronavirus pandemic has forced a change of release plans for Rebellion’s ‘Essential Judge Dredd’ line and more.

2000 AD publisher Rebellion has become the latest to reassess its publishing schedule in the wake of the impact the coronavirus pandemic is having on the publishing industry — and particularly the comic book industry — with a revised slate that divides digital and print releases and pushes back titles previously announced for this summer.
As part of the reordering, print collections scheduled for May through August have been postponed until later in the year, with the exception of exclusive limited editions already printed for distribution through Rebellion’s online store. Other titles scheduled for release in 2020 will be bumped to next year to avoid flooding the market when stores reopen.
