C is for comics and coronavirus.

Marvel Comics has officially announced the cancellation of numerous comic book series. All of them had originally been slate for a 2020 release. However, a certain pandemic delayed their release being pushed back. They’ve now unfortunately been pushed back so hard, that they fell off the calendar altogether. So we’ll never actually get to see what they’re about.

In most cases, the cancelled comic books involve ongoing series. This means that they’ll likely be stuck on cliffhangers, with no conclusion to ever finish them. A few of the cancelled comic books though hadn’t actually even begun yet before Marvel Comics cancelled them. These stillborn comic series include Silver Surfer Black Director’s Cut, X-Men Dawn of X Saga, and Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker Adaptation.
