Rebellion is a comic book publisher that has been relatively unaffected by the current global situation. While the likes of Marvel, DC, Image and others have had to cease publication, printing and distribution, Rebellion has not. Because their titles 2000AD and Judge Dredd Megazine are available on the newsstand and via subscription, as well as through comic book stores, they have continued publication with reduced print runs. Which may make last week's edition of 2000AD featuring the return of someone rather special , quite the collector's item.
However, when it comes to collections, more readily available in bookstores and comic stores, they have made some changes to their schedules, with a staggered line up taking titles planned from 2020 into 2021. Some graphic novels due for release in May, June, July, and August 2020 will go digital-first, with standard print editions postponed until later in the year. While online-exclusive print editions of some titles will still go ahead . Rebellion states that this is intended so that readers can still enjoy collections while in lockdown, while avoiding a glut of titles hitting retailers when they reopen.
Ben Smith , Head of Publishing at Rebellion, is quoted as saying "We won't be going on hiatus -- the periodical comics will continue while some book collections will go digital-first so we can continue to share and shout about the amazing work our creators and editors are putting together while we're all in lockdown. Where special hardback editions have already been printed we will release these from our webshop on the planned dates. look forward to getting back to normal service, but in the meantime, our mission to deliver to best in new and classic comics continues." Rebellion is to reschedule graphic novels and collections from 2020 into 2021.
This list does not include all graphic novel titles slated for release in 2021 from Rebellion. Just the new dates for titles that were originally scheduled for the 2020 schedule. You can also catch up with Bleeding Cool's coverage of the current situation across the comics industry using this tag.
