Marvel most prolific reprint publisher in 2020, but other publishers gain share

Our list of second-and-later printings of comic books released in 2020 is now complete. Including next week’s issues, publishers released 357 reprint editions into the Direct Market in 2020, down from 572 in 2019 owing to pandemic cutbacks. Click to see the full list!

Marvel‘s 169 reprint issues was 47% of the total; that’s down from 354 in 2019, when it was 62% of the total. Its slower post-shutdown relaunch was a factor. Boom Studios was second with 58; its Once and Future #1 got its eighth edition in 2020, the year’s highest-numbered printing.
