For a couple of years, both Marvel and DC Comics have provided codes with their physical books so readers can get a free digital copy of the issue. Now Marvel has upped the ante by giving digital codes for the entire first collection of that series for free.
“The .NOW issues provide a great first issue entry point for new and existing readers alike,” said David Gabriel, SVP of Print & Digital Publishing, Marvel Entertainment. “But by offering free digital collections with print issues, we’re offering fans who may not have experienced these exciting series a great chance to jump into the full story all at once, taking advantage of both the print and digital formats in a manner no other publisher has attempted! “
Seems like a good deal to me – especially if you are new to comics and are looking for ways to jump on board popular titles.
