Marvel buy a 399 comic get the digital version free

first_imgMarvel should be a name well known to anyone who has an interest in super heroes, comic books, or has visited the movie theater in recent years to see a blockbuster release. If you like purchasing Marvel comics in particular, then you’re in for a treat come this June.If you buy a physical copy of any Marvel $3.99 comic from June onwards, it will contain a code gifting you the digital version of that same comic for free. The digital comics will be available on either iOS or Android through their respective app stores and using the Marvel Comics app.The offer is a clever one because it gives a new incentive to actually go out and buy the paper version of a comic. That should help keep a few stores in profit, but at the same time it gives Marvel’s digital efforts a major boost. If not through sales, through more people actually knowing their comics exist in digital form. Enticing us to visit stores also holds the potential for sales beyond just the comic books, to that all-important high-profit merchandize.This isn’t a new idea as the company have already experimented with digital download codes in copies of Avenging Spider-Man, Ultimate Comics, and Season One graphic novels. Now the offer is being expanded to include significantly more of Marvel’s catalog.How long the offer will continue for isn’t stated, so for the time being it’s ongoing. Marvel has also said it is working to “bring the worlds of print and digital media together.” If that works then we should have an incentive to purchase both a physical and digital copy of the comics we enjoy.Read more at Marvellast_img read more
