Marvel SVP of Sales and Marketing David Gabriel said in a press release:
“We heard the message loud and clear on Digital same issue codes,” “We heard how folks across the world were using them, relying on them, loving them. We are always looking to do what’s best for fans and the comics industry so we’re pleased to make this program even better. Now, print comics readers will receive a code for the issue they purchased, and also an additional bonus comic giving customers even more value for their purchase.”
Marvel will continue to keep readers in the loop regarding which bonus digital comic they can expect each week with consistent in-print and social messaging.
The change to Marvel’s digital redeem code program begins May 3, with the release of “Secret Empire” #1 by Nick Spencer and Steve McNiven.
