It's nice to see them doing so well, actually the industry as a whole in the English language. But it really is a pain to wait for them to catch up to the demand. I live in the Netherlands and a lot of the English manga comes through the UK, so both the production issues Viz is facing, the transportation issues due to corona we're facing worldwide and the Brexit complications are affecting the availability of manga here greatly. Prices are soaring and popular series are very hard to come by. I really do hope this will smoothen out in the near future because I really hope the demand will only increase over time allowing for more and more series to get localized. I'm especially happy with the older titles getting (re-)licensed, like First of the North Star.

Viz made up 15% of the entire comic market in 2019. Would be interested to see how much more they encompassed in 2020 as a result of this.
