Hi all. Hopefully everyone is keeping safe at this weird time. Saw this and thought it might be worth posting.

Marvel had previously announced that ongoing series were still being worked on (with around 20% of titles being 'paused', mainly movie-related titles and new launches). The bad news is that it now looks like the X-Men titles and Deadpool have been added to the stoppage, along with Black Cat and some others. See here for more: https://bleedingcool.com/comics/marvel-tells-more-comics-creators-to-stop-work-for-now/ with additional here: https://bleedingcool.com/comics/marvel-comics-latest-pause/

There are rumours that new comics may start shipping in August: https://bleedingcool.com/comics/diamond-distribute-new-comics-august-earliest/ - so I'm surprised that Marvel didn't want to get further ahead during this down time. Hopefully Thompson and Sandoval have a few issues in the bank, after the delays with Bachalo. It will be interesting to see if Sandoval is still the regular artist after these completed issues, as he might end up looking for other work...

UPDATE!
Diamond will now apparently be distributing Marvel Comics again on May 20, and the list includes Deadpool #5 - https://bleedingcool.com/comics/thank-foc-tuesday-diamond-date-20th-may-new-comics/

Looks like Marvel are now delaying new comics by a week and spreading out their titles a little. Marvel titles are now starting to ship on May 27, with Deadpool #5 being released June 10: https://bleedingcool.com/comics/marvel-returns-to-comic-shops-on-may-27th-and-its-a-wednesday/
