We just wanted to take this time to update everyone on BIC during this COVID 19 outbreak.
First, we are continuing to release titles. Outbreak or not, we aim to produce new stories and that will not change. 2020 has already seen the release of two new epic adventures; Bonecheck Volume 2: Wolves of Carnival Califax and Monitor. We’ve seen an incredible resiliency among all the creatives we work with from all over the world. With health and safety first and foremost, the drive and commitment to create comics has not been diminished. This doesn’t mean we’ve escaped making adjustments. Wickhaven Horror, Ice Harbinger and the much anticipated Ballad of Al Snow and Head have encountered various setbacks that could not be helped. Have no fear, they are still in current production. Pages are coming in every day, and we will update everyone on the new release schedule once it’s finalized.
Second, some shop items have been delayed. This includes the Exclusive Al Snow prints. The ever-complex mission of getting them signed by the creative team during quarantine goes on. Everyone is coordinating and working diligently to ship those in the next couple weeks. They are beautiful, and will absolutely be worth the wait. Some other titles may be affected, but we’re on top of making sure we have inventory of everything possible. Printers are understandably altering their hours to protect their employees from exposure, and shipping is more difficult. We’re doing our best to adjust and make sure everything is going out as quickly as possible.
Third, to say the convention season has been altered would be an understatement. There have been many cancellations and postponements. For us, that means that some shows will no longer be feasible, while others may open up in availability. That calls for a total rework of our show schedule for the remainder of the year. Once we get final information on a few shows, we will update our Upcoming Events page and share the new 2020 show calendar.
We want to thank all of you for your support over the years and let you know that we are thinking of all of you during this time. Be safe, be healthy, read comics!
