First Three AVENGING SPIDER-MAN Issues Include Digital Copy

AVENGING SPIDER-MAN Digital Copies

 

Marvel is extending their Avenging Spider-Man download code experiment to the first three issues of the series, the publisher announced Wednesday.

Earlier this month, Marvel announced that the first print issue of the series, scheduled for release on Nov. 9, would be polybagged with a download code redeemable for a free digital copy. Each Avenging Spider-Man issue is priced at $3.99, a dollar less than DC's similar Justice League "combo pack."

At New York Comic Con, Marvel representatives discussed the possibility of free digital copies being offered for more titles if enough readers redeem the Avenging Spider-Man codes. Avenging Spider-Man is a team-up book by writer Zeb Wells and artist Joe Madureira pairing Spider-Man with fellow heroes from across the Marvel Universe, read more about the series here.

Here's the full press release from Marvel:

 

As a result of the overwhelming support for the Avenging Spider-Man #1 With Free Digital Code* free digital copy promotion, Marvel is proud to announce that now every issue of Avenging Spider-Man’s action packed first arc, will be polybagged with a code for a FREE digital copy! So when you purchase any print copy of Avenging Spider-Man #1, #2 AND #3 from the blockbuster creative team of Zeb Wells & Joe Madureira, you’ll get a free digital copy of that issue on the Marvel Comics app (for iOS and Android devices) at no extra cost!

“At New York Comic Con we heard from fans and retailers that this was the most exciting digital comics move of the year because of the added value it gives every copy of Avenging Spider-Man,” said David Gabriel, Marvel SVP of Sales. “Based on initial orders of over 100,000 units for the first issue—and the steady increase in orders since we’ve begun promotion on this plan—we knew that including a code for a free digital copy in future issues of Avenging Spider-Man not only excites our retailers, but incentivizes fans to come into stores for one of the year’s hottest new releases. It’s a win-win for everyone with no extra cost to readers and an increased revenue share for retailers.”

 

This November, no fan can miss the release of Avenging Spider-Man #1, available in stores with free digital copy and on the Marvel Comics app.
