Originally launched in June 2017, Archie's Marvel Comics Digest contained reprinted material and was intended to expand Marvel's "reach and exposure" according to VP of Sales David Gabriel - utilizing Archie's popular digest format and distribution channels outside the direct market such as to large chain retailers.

Archie solicited Marvel Comics Digest #9 and #10, but cancelled both of those earlier this week.
