Several Iron Circus Comics titles scheduled for release in the Winter and Spring 2020 seasons have been delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak in China, where many of their print service providers are located. The publisher first thought only the earliest titles would be affected but as the situation worsens, nearly every title will miss its original pub date.
Iron Circus Comics doesn’t want to commit to new dates until they get solid word from vendors that they are safe, healthy, and able to return to work. But most Iron Circus titles originally slated for release between February and July will move to later in the season. These include:
- Banned Book Club by Ryan Estrada, Kim Hyun Sook, and Ko Hyung-Ju (original: February / tentative: May)
- The Nixie of The Mill Pond ed. by Kell McDonald and Kate Ashwin (original: April / tentative: May)
- The Harrowing of Hell by Evan Dahm (original: March)
- Softies by Kyle Smeallie (original: March)
- Smut Peddler Presents: Silver ed. by Andrea Purcell (original: May)
- It’s Your Funeral by Emily Riesbeck and Ellen Kramer (original: June)
- Penultimate Quest by Lars Brown (original: July)
- Student Ambassador by Ryan Estrada and Axur Eneas (original: July)
Everyone at Iron Circus appreciates the fans’ understanding while they sort everything out and ensure their partners are doing what they need to stay safe.
