MARVEL Dives Into Digital [UPDATED]

Yesterday, Marvel Comics announced that starting with January’s Ultimate Spider-Man #6, the Ultimate Comics Universe titles will include a code for a free digital copy on the Marvel Comics app for iOS and Android devices. By February, this will include the entire set of Ultimate Universe titles.

“The groundbreaking stories told each month in the Ultimate Comics Universe are some of the best comics being published today,” said David Gabriel, Senior Vice-President of Sales, Marvel Entertainment. “Looking at the tremendous response to our digital copy code offer with Avenging Spider-Man #1, it’s clear that this is something fans want to see more of and we’re delivering it on a scale never seen before, with no extra cost to retailers or fans—and historic benefits for our retail partners.”

This will also include – for the first time – access to digital copies of graphic novels as well, beginning with the brand new Marvel: Season One stories.

Marvel: Season One – aimed at both new and long-time readers – are in-continuity tales of the origins of Sdays of Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and Daredevil.

“We’re committed to attracting new readers by providing compelling original stories about our top heroes from our most exciting creators, all packaged at an unbeatable value. I can’t think of any comic initiative that embodies this more than Marvel Season One,” said Gabriel. “The response to Marvel: Season One from fans, retailers and press has been so incredible that have a second wave of graphic novels in development for later this year.”
